Keeping on Track for September

The $250 Tuition Deposit is credited towards your fall tuition payment. Paying the tuition deposit by the deadline guarantees you a seat in the Education program and you will be automatically registered in your first-year courses. The tuition deposit can be paid by cheque, credit card, or by cash/debit in person at the Finance Office. You can also phone (403) 410-2910 to make payment.
2. Course Registration
Registration for fall and winter courses opens May 1, 2023. Once you have paid your Tuition Deposit, you will be registered in your first-year courses and a Registration Confirmation Package will be sent to you.
Applications that have been received by the Early Admission application deadline (March 1) will automatically be reviewed for scholarships. Scholarship notifications will be sent with admission letters. More information on student loans, scholarships and financial assistance can be found here. It is also important to know that tuition and fees are due on August 31, 2023. There are multiple methods available to you to make your payment. To find out more, click here.
4. Bachelor of Education Program Orientation
The Education student orientation is planned for September 5, 2023, so mark this date on your calendars. This is an opportunity for you to meet your professors and receive important information about the field experience component, the mentorship program, and other facets of the Education program. Information about this orientation day will be sent to you over the summer.
5. Apply to Live in Residence
Rooms in residence are available to BEd students. There are a limited number of single rooms; therefore, if you would like to live in residence, you will need to submit a Residence Application as soon as possible. Rooms are granted on a first come first serve basis. Room assignments will be determined in August.
6. Request your Final Post-Secondary Transcripts
Final post-secondary transcripts are to be sent to Ambrose directly. Remember, for transcripts to be considered "Official" they must be sent directly from the issuing institution to Ambrose.
Shortly after paying your tuition deposit, you will receive an email about your https://my.ambrose.edu login credentials from IT. Login by entering your username and password. If you did not receive an email, please contact your Admissions Advisor. All official Ambrose communication will be communicated to you through your Ambrose email. It is, therefore, your responsibility to regularly check your Ambrose email for important information from the Office of the Registrar, Student Development, finance, and from your program faculty and staff.
8. Students with Accessibility Needs
Accommodations and accessibility services are intended to remove barriers related to the functional limitations caused by a disability or health condition. Students with documented disabilities or health conditions may be eligible for a number of accommodations and services while studying at Ambrose. The Accessibility Services office staff will need to meet with you well in advance of the start of the semester to allow for sufficient time to arrange accommodations, services, and potential funding opportunities. Students are responsible for contacting Accessibility Services to set up a meeting prior to each semester to discuss their needs as well as to provide relevant and current medical, psycho-educational, and/or psychological documentation. For more information, please visit here or visit the Accessibility Services office located on the 2nd floor of the main campus in the Student Development office.
9. Ambrose Bookstore
The Bookstore serves the university by providing textbooks, school clothing and gear, fair trade gifts, and general interest reading materials for purchase. Our online store is an excellent place to find out about course textbook lists. For more information, visit here.
We will continue to be in touch with you over the summer via email to keep you up to date with what's going on in the program and by providing you with any updated information you will need regarding the start-up of your classes. Should you have any questions or concerns at any time between now and the first day of classes, please do not hesitate to contact:
