Questions for Admitted Students

Will the COVID-19 situation affect new student registration?

New student registration opened on May 1st. Registration packages will be delivered shortly after you are admitted. The method by which all courses will be delivered is still being determined, but should social distancing guidelines be in place in September, we are considering multiple scenarios, including a hybrid model where some classes are in-person and others are online.

Have deadlines for scholarships changed?

We will be extending the deadlines for the following scholarships:

  • Church Servant Leadership Scholarship deadline is extended to April 30th
  • Endowed Entrance Scholarships deadlines are extended to August 1st

All other deadlines are maintained.

Impacts to Prospective Student

Are you still doing campus tours?

As of July 9th, we are once again providing in-person campus tours! Here are some things you should know before booking:

Ambrose University is following every protocol outlined by Alberta Health Services, which means:

  • All visitors must wear a mask while on the premises (if you do not have one, please let us know).
  • All visitors must answer a short COVID-19 survey upon checking in at reception.
  • All surfaces (doorknows, railings, etc) will be sanitized before and after your visit.
  • We will be obeying all distancing rules as set by Alberta Health Services (2m distance at all times).

Other things to note:

  • You are welcome to invite up to three other people on your campus visit for a total group size of four (plus the host).
  • Your host will also be wearing a mask at all times and will be maintaining appropriate distance.
  • For now, we will not be extending tours to our residence buildings. To watch our online residence tour, click here

Future of Current Applicants

Will the COVID-19 situation affect my application status?

All members of our staff are committed to processing applications in a timely manner. It is possible that we may experience some delays as a result of changes implemented for COVID-19, but we are working diligently to process applications as quickly as possible. Should delays occur, we will extend accommodations to you according to the situation.

What grades will Ambrose accept, now that diplomas and SAT/ACT exams have been cancelled?

Ambrose will accept the completed course grade sent by Alberta Education upon completion of each course. In addition, the SAT/ACT (American) requirements will be waived for Fall 2020 intake.

My English proficiency test is going to be delayed or deferred. What do I do?

During this time we understand that testing centres might be closed until further notice. While submitting these tests is still a requirement for admission to Ambrose, we recommend keeping updated via the TOEFL and IELTS websites for options.

Given the fluidity of the situation, we will be updating this page regularly as more information becomes available.
