Other Student Information/Services

uLethbridge's Academic Writing Centre (headquartered at the Lethbridge Campus) has a team of writing tutors who are able to connect with non-Lethbridge students virtually (and FREE of charge) for help and guidance with writing their class papers - specifically in terms of polishing up their overall structure, cohesiveness, and flow/readability, prior to assignment submission.

It should be noted however that the Writing Centre is NOT a proof-reading service so your assigned tutor (once confirmed for a booking) will unfortunately not review and edit your assignments for you. Instead, they will go through your assignments WITH you so that you can learn the skills and techniques needed to eventually build high quality, university-level papers on your own.

Register an account with the Writing Centre (in the above link) and book an appointment today!

7 Cups - About Us & FAQ

All successfully admitted undergraduate and graduate program students (domestic and international) are provided with the opportunity to apply into the university’s Co-operative Education and Work-Integrated Learning Program (“Co-op” for short) as a way to supplement their studies and enhance the value of their program upon graduation. Co-op job positions will usually consist of full-time paid work experience and will be typically related to the student’s respective area of study/major.

Co-op Work Terms are not built directly into any given uLethbridge credential program’s curriculum and are also not required for graduation purposes, at this time – that is, they are 100% OPTIONAL so a student can fully graduate from uLethbridge without pursuing a Co-op.

Admission into the Co-op program will entail an entirely separate application process to which individual students can elect to apply for at any time during their studies (even during one's first year) so long as it is accomplished before applying to graduate from the university.

Questions? Contact the uLethbridge Career Bridge office at career.bridge@uleth.ca or book an online appointment with a Co-op Coordinator via the MyExperience Platform

All admitted students from any faculty and program are provided with the opportunity to apply for an outbound education abroad experience to one of uLethbridge’s many partner institutions (to supplement their course-based studies) by way of: term-based exchanges, internships, work study programs, study tours, and more!

*Note: International Student Exchanges are temporarily unavailable due to travel restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The university is looking forward to offering these opportunities once again as soon as travel and health restrictions permit.

If you are interested in incorporating an optional international exchange (in the future) as part of your individual program, please email calgary.advising@uleth.ca for additional guidance - ideally, well in advance (i.e. 1 year) of even applying for an exchange.

Questions about uLethbridge's Outbound Education Abroad Program? Please email the uLethbridge Outgoing International Exchange office at outgoing@uleth.ca

uLethbridge's MyExperience platform via the "Students" tab, is an online web-based system that ALL admitted students from any program, academic-level, and campus can access at any point in their studies to sign-up for and participate in a wide variety of activities and events aimed at developing professional and/or personal skills, if interested (contingent on what is available).

Activities may take place ON-CAMPUS (Lethbridge or Calgary), OFF-CAMPUS, or ONLINE and can cover a range of experiential learning opportunities which can include but are not limited to: Microsoft Excel Skills workshops,  Eat-and-Learns with Industry Professionals, Student Success Skills (e.g. preventing procrastination, time management, how to take effective notes), Self-help Skills with Counselling Services, among others.

  • The log-in credentials to the MyExperience platform will be identical to that of one's Bridge account
    • Once logged-in, see the Events & Workshops and/or Experience Tracking tabs (along the left-hand pane) to view and potentially sign-up for an approaching available session
  • The portal can also be used to book appointments with: a Co-op Coordinator (e.g. intake or interview prep), a Career Coach, a Study Skills Learning Strategist, and even view the university's Co-op, non-Co-op, Applied Studies, and Community Service job boards
The MyExperience Transcript (MET): Upon the completion of certain experiential learning workshops (may sometimes entail the completion of an entire series of workshops), a log of one's participation will be recorded on their own unique MET (different from an  academic transcript of course grades and is only accessible via the MyExperience platform) to which students can subsequently share via customized link to prospective employers, professional associations, volunteer boards, etc., if interested.
  • To access one's MET, log-in to the portal and click on the "MyExperiences" tab (along the left-hand pane)

Moodle is the University of Lethbridge’s primary and secured learning management system. Both instructors as well as certain administrative offices will use Moodle to digitally administer materials and other informational resources to students (course-related or otherwise), where appropriate.

*The log-in credentials for one's Moodle account will be identical to one's Bridge account.

All active uLethbridge Calgary Campus students are able book one of Bow Valley College's own available study rooms via their online booking forms here: https://bowvalleycollege.ca/student-resources/academic-services/study-room-booking (availability permitting). Will require the eventual entry of your @uleth.ca email address in order to finalize the booking.

Because these on-campus study rooms are exclusively owned and operated by Bow Valley College, rather than the ULETH-Calgary Campus, all requesting ULETH students will thus be required to comply with the college's own booking procedures and appropriate usage policies.

The University of Lethbridge Calgary Campus unfortunately does not possess its own onsite print shop/copy centre, at this time.

As a result, all students who are are in need of printing services (e.g. for class handouts or papers/projects), must instead seek out and engage the assitance of other external providers and subsequently abide by the latter's own customer pricing schemes (out-of-pocket) and established hours of operation.

Some example business both within and around the Bow Valley College area include:

  • Rileys (1st floor, BVC South Campus tower)
  • The Calgary Central Library (800 - 3rd St SE, just across the C-train line tracks and east of the City Hall train stations) - MUST have a valid Calgary Public Library Card on-hand

At this time, all financial awards will only be accessible to successfully admitted and active uLethbridge students.

UNDERGRADUATE scholarship opportunities and their respective eligibility conditions, are to be viewed and applied to online via your Bridge account > Log-in > “Student” Tab > Apply for ULETH Scholarships, Awards, and Bursaries


GRADUATE scholarship opportunities and their respective eligibility conditions, can be viewed on the uLethbridge School of Graduate Studies' (SGS) online database


EXTERNAL (non-uLethbridge affiliated) AWARDS:

All admitted uLethbridge students will have their own student webmail account automatically created for them once they have set-up their Bridge account first.

Emails from instructors and other university offices will only be delivered to your @uleth.ca email account (not personal emails) once you are an active student, so make sure that you regularly check your webmail account for any new messages, ideally once-a-day, at a minimum.

*The log-in credentials for your Webmail account will be identical to your Bridge account.

All active uLeth students must have a valid student ID card on their person for campus visitation verification purposes.

Requesting either a new or a replacement card is all accomplished online via the university’s IT Service Now Portal as the very first step > log-in with Bridge credentials > “Request a Service” Tab (top of landing page) > Request Campus ID Card > Complete online form as instructed & attach chosen photo before submitting.

  • What U of L Campus will you be attending = Northern Campus - Calgary
    • This is to ensure that your ID card is eventually printed in Calgary, rather than in Lethbridge
  • Please ensure that your chosen photo for uploading captures your image from the mid-chest/collarbone, up to and clears the top of your head (no cut-offs), and with eyes facing forward.
    •  Smiling is permitted
    • Things that are NOT PERMITTED for your ID card photo:
      • Hats (unless for religious or cultural reasons)
      • Sunglasses (regular reading/vision glasses are fine)
      • Distracting props
      • Non-neutral body positions
    • While not required, try to ensure that the background of your chosen photo is a plain/non-distracting one (e.g. like a passport or a school photo)

Note: Any ID card requests with improper, blurry, or absent photos will prompt for their re-submission, which will subsequently delay their printing.

Students will be eventually sent a follow-up email from the Calgary office confirming that their printed ID card is ready for pick-up at our front reception desk during our in-person business hours. Under normal circumstances, ID cards will not be mailed out due to privacy reasons.

All student loan funding is approved by and administered through Alberta Student Aid (ASA).

At this time, only Canadian citizens, permanent residents, and persons under protected status (e.g. documented refugees), are eligible to apply for student loans; international students are unfortunately ineligible.

Loans must be applied for on an as-needed basis. ASA's calendar year will always run from August 1 - July 31. That is, students wishing to apply for student loan funding with ASA for a Fall (Sept-Dec) semester will only be able to do so by no earlier than August 1st of that year. uLethbridge's own calendar year on the other hand will always run from May 1 - April 30.

STUDY SKILLS: Being a successful student involves more than just attending class and studying for exams - it takes hard work, dedication, and a commitment to the development of the skills needed to learn effectively and efficiently (e.g exam prep, time management/reducing procrastination, efficient note-taking and textbook reading, etc.). The SSC is here to help you take charge of your own learning, build your academic skills and confidence, and get the most out of your studies.

Questions? Contact the SSC office at student.success@uleth.ca

TUTORING SERVICES: The SSC additionally offers a number of group tutorials and help centres during the major Spring (Jan-Apr) and Fall (Sept-Dec) semesters to help support students in their course-specific success. At this time, no individual tutor matching is available.

***IMPORTANT: Not all courses/subject areas will have a dedicated tutoring group and not all semesters will have available tutoring (contingent on demand and staffing pool). The large majority of available tutoring groups for a given semester are mostly limited to 1000 and 2000-level courses and will often be held in-person at the Lethbridge Campus - that is, not all available tutoring groups will have online/virtual accessibility.

Questions? Contact the SSC office at student.success@uleth.ca (even for those who are interested in forming their own virtual/in-person tutoring groups)

By around the END-OF-FEBRUARY of each year, all uLethbridge students will be able to view and subsequently print the following tax slips for previous/past financial years (Jan-Dec), where applicable, via their own Bridge accounts > "Student" Tab > Student Account > Canadian Tax Forms, which can then be used to file one's individual TD1 Personal Income Tax Return for that particular tax year:

  • T2202 (Tuition and Enrollment) - Effective 2019 and onward, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) now requires students to include their social insurance number (SIN) on their respective T2202.
    • On your Bridge Account, go under the 'Personal Information' tab > 'Update Social Insurance Number (SIN)' to confirm that the number displayed is accurate. This number will be automatically pushed onto your T2202s, once they are available
  • T4A (Statement of Pension, Retirement, Annuity, and Other Income) - Will only be made visible to students if and only if they were additionally awarded with scholarships, bursaries, or other financial awards for their studies during a given financial year.
    • If you were not granted any sort of financial award for a given financial year, then you will not have a corresponding T4A available for you to view/print
    • Scholarship money will not be taxable, so long as the student has a corresponding T2202 which states that they were a full-time student (i.e. 9.0+ credit hours earned during a given semester).

IMPORTANT:

    • All owing fees and charges for the prior financial year must have been PAID IN FULL before your respective tax certificates can be viewed and accessed
    • Effective January 2013 and onward, all student T2202s and T4As must be digitally retrieved and downloaded online from one's own Bridge account. The university has long since discontinued the distribution/mailing out of paper copies.
    • T4 (Statement of Remuneration Paid) tax slips are exclusively reserved and generated for employed uLethbridge staff and faculty members, only

      QUESTIONS? Please engage the following offices:

      All non-Lethbridge based students are to purchase their course textbooks online through the uLethbridge Bookstore's e-commerce site, as the Calgary Campus currently does not have its own onsite/in-city shop, at this time.

      See our "Ordering Textbooks" handout: PDF iconordering_textbooks_non-lethbridge_campus_students.pdf

      Online published university fee schedules (updated annually)

      • Undergraduate tuition will always be assessed in direct proportion to the number of courses that the individual student registers themselves in, per semester
      • Graduate tuition assessments will vary by individual program (e.g. dynamic course-based tuition by term, fixed term-based tuition for a certain number of semesters followed by reduced continuation fees afterwards, etc.)

      Tuition (any academic-level) will never be assessed on whole programs as fees can always be subject to annual change, as authorized by the uLethbridge Board of Governors.


      Individual fee balances can be readily viewed on one's Bridge account > Log-in > “Student” Tab > Student Account > “Account Summary by Term” report > see “Term Balance” line item.

      • Balance reports for an approaching semester will be appropriately updated upon the first day classes for said semester, and no sooner. That is, you will not be able to see your owing fees for a given term if classes have not yet started.
      • Positive term balances indicate "money owed"
      • Negative term balances indicate "money credited/overpaid in excess"

       

      Questions about your individual balances/assessments? Contact the uLethbridge Cash Office at either cash.office@uleth.ca or 1-403-329-2469 (City of Lethbridge number) for assistance

      • October 1 - Fall (Sept-Dec)
      • February 1 - Spring (Jan-Apr)
      • June 1 - For ALL Summer terms (May-Aug)
        • Including those who are only registered in Summer II (July, only), Summer III (August, only), or Summer II/III (July-August) courses

      *Should any of these dates end up falling on either a weekend or a statutory holiday during a given year, then the respective payment deadline will simply be pushed to the next business day

      Accepted Payment Methods at the ULETH Calgary Campus Office
      1. MOST CONVENIENT: Online Bill Payment (Note: this is not the same as an E-transfer)
        • Funds are being transferred from the payer's CANADIAN BANK
          • Log in to your Canadian financial institution's (e.g. TD Canada, CIBIC, RBC, Scotiabank etc.) customer/client service website or mobile app
          • Payee = University of Lethbridge (institution name may vary from bank-to-bank)
          • Account Number = 9-digit uLethbridge student ID number (include all leading zeroes)
          • Allow between 2-5 business days for processing
        • Funds are being transferred from the payer's INTERNATIONAL/NON-CANADIAN BANK
          • 1-of-2 possible methods: "GlobalPay" or "PayMyTuition
          • General Information on International Payment Methods at uLethbridge: link
      2. Canadian Interac Debit Card, in-office
        • Canadian financial institution-issued (e.g TD Canada, CIBC, RBC, Scotiabank, etc.) Debit, Visa-Debit, and MasterCard-Debit cards will be accepted
        • Please ensure that you have sufficient funds and are also mindful of your individual card's daily allotted transaction limit, prior to making your payment

      **The Calgary Campus Office currently does not accept the following for fee payments, at this time. Thank you for understanding:

      • Cash
      • Cheques
      • Credit Cards
      • Bank Drafts
      • Money Orders
      • International/non-Canadian Debit Cards

      Interest charges, at a rate of the Canadian bank prime + 5%, and amortized over 12-months, will accrue on a monthly basis towards any outstanding accounts not paid in full beyond the deadline.

      It is important that ANY AMOUNT is both PAID AND POSTED either on or before the deadline  – even as little as $10.00 would be acceptable for those who are unable to pay their full balance up front – as doing so will secure one's “active student” status for the term.


      CAUTION: Should no money be paid/posted onto a student's account by the end-of-the-day on the associated term deadline, then the university reserves the right to cancel such students’ registration for “non-payment (NP). NP students, if they continue to pay no money towards their balances beyond the deadline, will eventually have their:

      1. Course registration privileges for future semesters frozen
      2. Moodle access disabled

      **In order for NP-coded students to be reinstated back into their term classes, they will be subsequently required to pay both the Cash Office-mandated reinstatement fee (currently designated at $100.00 CAD) + any other amount towards their tuition balances.

      Viewing or requesting a copy of one's official or unofficial uLethbridge Transcript are both accomplished online via your Bridge account.

      UNOFFICIAL TRANSCRIPT - A digital (non-MyCreds) copy. Completing this process on a laptop or PC works best.

      • "Student" tab > Student Records > Unofficial Transcript > Transcript Level: All Levels | Transcript Type: Unofficial Transcript > Submit > Ctrl + P on your keyboard > "Save to PDF" or "Print to PDF" > save as local file on personal device

      OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPT - A hard copy original delivered by regular mail in a sealed envelope OR an authentic digital MyCreds copy, sent directly from uLethbridge to another institution.

      • Method 1 (Hard Copy): “Student” tab > Student Records > Request Official Transcript > complete online form, as instructed.
        • The student's consent is always required before an Official Academic Transcript can be released
        • The charge for official transcripts is $10.00 CAD, per copy. Students will be prompted to enter a valid VISA or MasterCard to charge this fee to
        • Under normal circumstances, official transcripts will take anywhere between 2-5 business days to be generated and eventually delivered to their intended destination (from the Lethbridge Campus), if in Canada. Will take longer if delivery destination is outside of Canada
          • With each transcript request, an official digital transcript will be concurrently uploaded into the secure MyCreds digital wallet
          • Paper transcripts are sent by regular mail. Additional charges may incur for any other delivery method (e.g. fax, courier, etc.)
        • If the student owes any fees to the university (including late library fees), transcripts will not be released
      • Method 2 (digital MyCreds Copy): “Student” tab > Student Records > Request Digital MyCreds Transcript > complete online form, as instructed.

      Note: If you are a past student and cannot recall either your old log-in credentials for the Bridge or even your 9-digit student ID number, then you will need to connect with the ULETH IT Solutions Centre (7:30am - 5:00pm, Mon-Fri) at 1-403-329-2490 (City of Lethbridge number) so that one of their staff members can disclose your prior ULETH username and also reset your Bridge password. The answering technician may ask a few additional questions to verify your identity.

      Questions? Any and all official transcript-related matters are exclusively managed by the uLethbridge Registrar’s Office at the Lethbridge Campus as a centralized department (regoffice@uleth.ca), regardless of the specific campus the individual student currently studies/previously studied at or eventually graduates from.

      As the University of Lethbridge Calgary Campus shares classroom space with Bow Valley College (BVC), all Calgary Campus-designated term courses which have been scheduled to take place onsite/in-person/face-to-face during a given semester will normally be held within one of BVC's own classrooms, which can in-turn take placed in either of the college's South Campus (345 - 6th Ave SE) OR its North Campus (332 - 6th Ave SE) towers

      • Classroom locations (once registered): Log-in to your Bridge account > “Student” Tab > Registration > “Student Detail Schedule” > see the “Where” field
      • Classroom Coding Scheme:
        • The leading "S" or "N" denotes the specific BVC tower
          • Bow Valley College S + (4-digit number) = South Campus tower-based classroom (building attached to the City Hall train platform)
          • Bow Valley College N + (3-digit number) = North Campus-based classroom
        • The first number following the “S” or “N” references the floor number
          • As a landmark example, the Calgary Campus Office's suite number is: S6032 = BVC South Campus tower, 6th floor
      • The +30 Walkway/Skybridge on 3rd floor of either the North or South Campus towers connects the two buildings together

      All online-delivered/"Online Campus" courses (SEC identifier: “OL”) on the other hand will not have an official classroom location and will instead take place digitally via some combination of Moodle, Zoom, and/or other mediums, as determined by the primary course instructor(s).

      The uLethbridge Library has a number of resources and services that are remotely available to Calgary-based students. Some frequently accessed Library services include (but aren't limited to):

      The University of Lethbridge unfortunately does not offer a UPASS for any Calgary-based students at this time, as our location is too small to qualify for one. The university's currently existing UPASS benefit is exclusively reserved for Lethbridge Campus-based students only as its usage scope is restricted for use within the City of Lethbridge’s own municipal transit area and surrounding – that is, it cannot be transferred for use in Calgary.

      For now, only the established standard transit fare rates, as mandated by Calgary Transit, are available to those who plan on utilizing Calgary public transit to commute to BVC for their in-person ULETH classes - with the most economical options being either a monthly adult transit pass (for Full-Time students) or a booklet of 10 tickets (for Part-Time students), as sold by Calgary Transit offices or approved third party vendors (e.g. Shoppers Drug Mart, London Drugs, Gas Stations, the Customer Service desks at Co-Op grocery store locations, etc.). Transit fare rates can be subject to annual change and will need to be paid for by the indivdual student, out-of-pocket.

      It should be noted that the implementation of a UPASS is technically motioned by the appropriate student government body, rather than central administration. At uLethbridge, these would be the University of Lethbridge Students' Union (ULSU) for undergraduate students and the Graduate Students'Association (GSA) for graduate students.

      For those who would like to engage in a discussion with either the ULSU or the GSA about considering a UPASS for Calgary-based students in future, please reach out to the following contacts, going forward:

      All successfully admitted uLethbridge students can generate and download a digital copy of an up-to-date Verification of Enrollment (VOE) letter via their own Bridge accounts:

      • Log-in with Bridge credentials (laptop or PC works best) > "Student” tab > Verification of Enrollment Letters
        • Select either “General Use” or “RESP” in the drop down box that says “Letter” – depending on what you need the VOE for
          • Note: The RESP-versions will display more information (e.g. date of birth, mailing address, program of enrolment etc.) when compared to the General Use iteration
        • The “Term” drop down box will default to either the student’s current semester of registration or to the most recent semester from when they last took classes at the university if they are not active for the current semester
        • Click the “Generate” button.
        • Hit Ctrl + P on your keyboard to either print a hard copy of this letter, OR select “Adobe PDF/Print to PDF” rather than an actual printing device in order to save it as a local pdf file, if you need a soft copy

      The information on these letters will automatically update with every semester that you remain a student with uLethbridge as the content is directly linked to both your course registration and current program of enrollment.

      **IMPORTANT: Bridge-generated VOEs CANNOT be used for student loan or IRCC/immigration/Canadian residency purposes. They can only be used for other matters that include but are not limited to: setting up a new (student) bank account, applying for housing accommodations, employer-requested background checks, etc.
