Apply to become an institutional member of the Alberta Transfer System
If your post-secondary institution isn’t already a member of the Alberta Transfer System, learn about the application process and benefits membership brings to your institution and students.
Who can apply?

Applications are strengthened if they include sponsorship from a member institution. Current institution members include institutions from Alberta and five other jurisdictions.
