Congratulations! You've been accepted to Mount Allison.
Wondering what's next? We want to make this process as easy as possible for you. Here are the steps you will need to take on your way to arriving on campus in September.
Remember, it's important to check your Mount Allison e-mail regularly. Once you have been accepted to Mount Allison, this is how we will communicate important information to you.
1. Accept your offer of admission
Simply pay your $100 registration deposit and this will confirm your intent to attend Mount Allison.
2. Apply for scholarships and bursaries
You will receive your student ID and password upon acceptance to the University. Once you set up your MtA e-mail, you can access both the scholarship and bursary applications through Connect@MtA. You will be automatically considered for entrance scholarships based on your grades, but you can apply for enhanced or designated scholarships. Bursaries are also available for student demonstrating financial need.

3. Apply to live in residence
More than 80 per cent of first-year students choose to live in residence. We base your residence assignment priority on the day you pay your $100 registration deposit (see #1). Plus, you will need to pay your $500 residence deposit to be considered for the early-bird residence draw.

4. If required, contact the Meighen Centre
If you are a student with a disability or condition, and feel that you may require services, supports, or accommodations, you are encouraged to contact the Meighen Centre once you have been admitted. Contacting the Centre early in the process will ensure that supports can be put in place to ensure your success.

5. Submit your mid-year transcript
If you have applied with your Grade 11 transcripts and have already been offered early admission, submit your mid-year transcript for entrance scholarship consideration. These transcripts do not need to be official – you can scan and e-mail, fax, or upload.
6. Attend Spring Open House or book a campus visit
If you would like to visit campus or have questions you would like answered in person, attend Spring Open House or book a campus visit anytime. If you can't make it to campus, do the next best thing and take a virtual tour.

Course registration opens for new students in May. You will receive a course registration package in the mail and can receive assistance with the process by visiting Mount Allison's RegHelp.
