Ambrose Regulations


Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA) Policy

Ambrose University is committed to safeguarding the personal information entrusted to us. We manage your personal information in accordance with Alberta’s Personal Information Projection Act and other applicable laws. This information forms part of a student’s record.

Information collected is used to determine eligibility for admission and financial assistance, to advise students about academic programs and to provide university services.

The student record is disclosed to academic and administrative units. Specific information is disclosed to the federal and provincial governments and external accrediting bodies to meet reporting requirements.

Students are required to inform Ambrose of changes in personal information, including contact information, name, citizenship, etc. Students can change their legal/primary name, address, phone number of alternative email address through their portal. Legal name or citizenship/immigration status changes must be supported with acceptable documentation.


Student Community Life Standards Policy

By registering with Ambrose, you are also expected to be familiar with and follow the Student Community Life Standards policy and procedures describe the behavioural expectations for all students, the sanctions that can be placed on a student, along with the appeal process. Students who accept the invitation to join the distinctly Christian academic community at Ambrose are expected to be familiar with and follow these standards. Each student must accept these responsibilities in order to remain part of the Ambrose community.


Gender-based and Sexual Violence Response and Awareness Policy

Ambrose takes gender-based and sexual violence seriously. The Gender-based and Sexual Violence policy and procedure establish the processes by which Ambrose will respond to allegations of gender-based and sexual violence. Students who have experienced violence will find support.



Ambrose relies on the Canadian Copyright Act (and especially its fair dealing provisions) to govern decisions with respect to copyright. The Ambrose Library continues to monitor developments in Canadian copyright legislation and will update the Ambrose Library’s copyright pages to incorporate any changes.

The best way to understand the implications of Canadian copyright law for teaching and learning at Ambrose is to review Ambrose’s Fair Copying Guidelines. These guidelines are for the education of the Ambrose community and should not be construed as legal advice.

We will update these pages as new developments occur. Any copyright-related questions or concerns should be directed to the Copyright Officer.

Once we receive all of your application information, we will review everything and if you are eligible we will offer you full admission by sending a letter of acceptance. All of your application documents, including your official transcripts, must be submitted before we admit you. In cases where official transcripts are in a language other than English, it is your responsibility to provide a certified English language translation. You will not be permitted to register if your application file is incomplete. The Seminary reserves the right to deny admission if it judges your overall academic record unacceptable, notwithstanding admissions standards.

Application Deferral

Once you are accepted into a Seminary program, you may postpone beginning your studies for one year. After a deferral of more than one year, you must reapply in order to study at Ambrose Seminary.

Fraudulent Documentation Policy

Students seeking admission to the University must provide true, complete, and accurate information in their application. Students who falsify or omit information as part of their admission process, up to the add/drop deadline, may have their admission and registration cancelled by the Registrar’s Office.

After the course add/drop deadline, students who falsify or omit information may be subject to academic misconduct regulations. Students who have submitted false information may be identified to other post-secondary institutions. Falsified documents may be referred to the appropriate authorities for potential prosecution under the Criminal Code of Canada.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event a student becomes aware that the student has unintentionally made an error in the information submitted, or has unintentionally omitted any information, as part of the admission process, the student is required to immediately report the same to the Registrar’s Office. The University will not take disciplinary action against a student that self-reports an error that was made reasonably and unintentionally. The University will only give consideration to students that self-report errors if such reports are made before the University has reason to believe that a student has falsified or omitted information as part of the admissions process.
