Apply for a study permit
For international students
Students who are not Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada need a valid study permit to attend Mount Allison. Please check to see if you need any extra travel authorization documents before you arrive.
You should apply as soon as you receive your Letter of Acceptance (LOA) as the process can take some time.
