How to Apply in Six Steps (International Students)
If you do not have TOEFL or IELTS test results, please check out our EAP (English Academic Preparation) Program. Upon your arrival at UPEI, you can start with an EAP assessment.
Tuition & international fees are the same for EAP courses as for credit courses. Students must be registered in a minimum of 3 courses (EAP and/or credit courses) to qualify for the UPEI Student Medical Plan. Students are strongly encouraged to purchase alternate insurance if registered in fewer than 3 courses. One option is available at http://www.guard.me/

Academic performance requirements
UPEI recognizes a strong academic performance at the high school level as an indicator for university potential. The University is interested in applicants possessing a strong academic record and a high level of commitment for university study. International students should submit documents that prove that their qualifications are comparable to that of Canadian applicants. Students should have 12 years of elementary and secondary education with a high school diploma, or a Senior Secondary Certificate, Higher Secondary School Certificate, or other forms of matriculation.
When can I apply?
Students who are still in their Grade 12 can apply to UPEI with their transcripts from Grade 10, 11, and first-semester results of Grade 12. They can receive Early Offers that will allow them to prepare for visa applications in advance.
UPEI welcomes qualified transfer students, and it is possible to transfer up to 60 credit-hours toward your credits at UPEI from an accredited higher education institution. For transfer students, besides official transcripts from your previous universities or colleges, we also need your brief course outlines or descriptions in English to determine the number of credit-hours that can be transferred.
