How to Apply

  • Complete the Algoma U application.
  • Send official transcripts (high school, college, and university if applicable).
  • Send non-refundable $70 (CDN funds) application fee payable to Algoma U.
  • Submit your LOP with the application or show it in person when registering for your Algoma U courses. Please note, you will not be allowed to register without your LOP.
