Been Admitted? Next Steps | UNB

Been admitted? Here are the next steps:

1. Accept your offer

Congratulations on being accepted to the University of New Brunswick!

Your next step is to confirm that you will be attending UNB by paying your admission deposit. The $100 deposit (Nursing admission deposit is $250 and UNB Fredericton Education is $300) will be credited to your account when you begin your studies in the fall. If you are not applying for an undergraduate program, you do not have to pay the admission deposit. The deadline for you to confirm your offer of admission is May 15 (unless otherwise specified).

Log in to your UNB application account to pay your deposit by clicking “Action Required”. Please note that accepting your offer of admission must be followed by your admission deposit payment to confirm your seat in your program.

2. Activate your IT services and set up multi-factor authentication (MFA)

Activating your UNB IT services gives you access to your myUNB Portal and UNB email. From your myUNB Portal, you are able to access your e-Services, course registration, financial information and more. To activate your IT services account, use your student number and login ID that was included in your acceptance letter.

Activate your IT services

Once your account is activated, you need to set up multi-factor authentication (MFA), an extra layer of security required when logging in to UNB IT services. To set up MFA, you need to download an app on your mobile device (if you don’t have one, there are also other options available).

MFA setup instructions

If you are unable to access your account or have trouble setting up MFA, contact UNB’s IT Service Desk for assistance.

3. Apply for residence

After activating your IT services, you will have access to complete your residence application. Students applying to residence are required to pay a non-refundable $500 residence application fee. For more information on payment options, contact UNB Financial Services.

Saint John campus

Residences at UNB Saint John tend to fill early, so students are encouraged to apply as early as possible.

Students wishing to live in residence on the Saint John campus must complete an application and submit a $500 residence deposit before being accepted into residence.

4. Apply for scholarships

The deadline to apply is March 1. Late applications will be accepted, however offers to late applicants will be dependent upon available funds.
