Application Processing

(This page is part of the official Academic Calendar)

Below you will find information about how we process applications.

Appeal of an Admission Decision

Contact the Registrar if you have concerns about an admission decision.

Cancelling Your Program

If, for any reason, you cannot attend the program to which you were admitted, please notify us of your intention to cancel your admission.   To do so, you can e-mail us  at admissions [at] rdc [dot] ab [dot] ca or phone us (403) 342-3400.  

Choosing Another Program

If you are not admitted into the program of your choice, you will be told the reason and offered assistance in choosing another program.

Clear Admission

Clear admission will be offered when all final documents have been received, showing you have met all program admission requirements.

Deferring Your Acceptance for Admission

You can defer your acceptance once if you are unable to attend because of special circumstances.   You must inform the Office of the Registrar in writing if you wish to defer acceptance.

Refusal of Admission

The College reserves the right to refuse admission to any person.

Response Letters to Applications

You will be advised by mail as to which documents are needed to complete your application. A Conditional Offer of Admission is given if:

  • your application form shows that you have completed or are completing the program admission requirements.
  • you submit official documents (such as final transcripts) before the program begins.

Note: Acceptance may be cancelled if these documents are not received by stated deadlines.

Test and Interview Results

Test and interview results will be kept confidential according to College policy and the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.   You may ask the Registrar for results of tests given by the College for admission purposes.   If you have been rejected on the basis of interviews, you can ask for the rationale for rejection from the Associate Dean for that program.

Wait Lists

If you qualify for admission after the program has filled, you will be placed on a wait list. You will be advised if space becomes available.
