Application Steps

Application Steps

Lakeland College accepts applications until the first day of classes, as long as space is available.

Applications for most programs are processed in the order they are received; the sooner you submit your application, the better your chances of getting accepted.

Once a program fills up, we have a wait list and applications for admissions into that program will also be considered for the following academic year.

All applications now online through applyalberta
Through applyalberta, you can complete the application process, pay the application fee and have your transcripts sent in one step.

Please note:
  1. If you have completed high school outside of Alberta, you will need to arrange to have your transcripts sent to Lakeland College.
  2. Please provide all the required information. If you miss something, your application will be delayed. It's your responsibility to make sure we receive all the necessary documents. Also note, all documents submitted become the property of Lakeland College and won't be returned.
Apply online at applyalberta. This is the new common application system for post-secondary institutions in Alberta. Follow the instructions on the site.
Pay the application fee
The $90 application fee application is an important part of the process. When you apply online, you'll need a credit card.

You may also apply and pay in person at either one of our campuses. Payment can be made by cheque, money order, cash, debit or credit card (VISA or MasterCard only). Cheques and money orders can be made payable to Lakeland College.

Also note:
  • You only pay the fee once per academic year. If you change programs or campuses before or after you register, you aren't required to pay the fee again.
  • If you completed a minimum of one semester in the past two academic years, you don't have to pay an application fee.
If necessary, arrange for an official transcript
If you attended high school in Alberta, your transcript will automatically be forwarded to us when you use applyalberta. However, if you don't apply online, you will have to arrange for an official transcript to be sent to us.

If you're from another province or country, you must arrange for an original official high school transcript to be sent directly to Lakeland College from one of the following sources:
  • the Department of Education (for Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Manitoba)
  • your high school (if you are from any other province)
  • your post-secondary institution

Transcripts can be mailed to Lakeland College Admissions in Vermilion or Lloydminster
  • 5707 College Drive Vermilion AB T9X 1K5 or faxed to 780 853 2955
  • 2602 59 Ave Lloydminster AB T9V 3N7 or faxed 780 875 1813
Check the transcripts page (left menu) for contact information for all the provincial departments of education.
Program Tuition Deposits
Once you’ve been accepted, you must pay a tuition deposit to guarantee your sport. This applies to first year students and if you are a new student going into the second year of a program.

Tuition deposit deadlines are included in your admissions letter.

This deposit is $250 for most programs. It’s $500 for Animal Health Technology, Veterinary Medical Assistant, Fire Fighter Training and Emergency Services Technology programs.

If you are an international student, the tuition deposit is $1,500.
Applying for part-time studies
If you are enroled in less than a 60% course load per semester, you are considered a part-time student.

You still need to complete and submit an application and pay the fee. Include the course name (s) and number(s) on the application.

Transcripts may be required to determine if you have the necessary prerequisites. You should contact the department chair for information on scheduling, course availability and prerequisites.
