Next steps after admission

International students: See the International Student Advisor's Office

1. Accept your offer

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. The deadline for you to confirm your offer of admission is May 15 (unless otherwise specified).

Log in to your UNB application account with your personal email and password 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 the MyUNB Intranet and UNB email. From the MyUNB Intranet, you are able to access your course registration, financial information, Microsoft 365 apps, 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.

If you are an international student, we highly recommend you begin the process of applying for immigration, immediately. For help with this, our Immigration Information Centre will be available once you have activated your IT services.

3. Apply for scholarships

The deadline to apply is March 1.

Apply for scholarships

The entrance scholarship application covers the majority of UNB scholarships on both campuses.

High school students may also be eligible to apply for the Schulich, Currie, Beaverbrook, Harrison McCain and Primrose which require separate applications.

4. Apply for residence

Fredericton campus

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 $800 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 $800 residence deposit before being accepted into residence.

5. Get your UCard

    look straight at the camera and smile (no hats, filters, or sunglasses)
  • An email will be sent to your UNB email address when your UCard is ready for pickup. It will include the pickup location, hours, and any special instructions*.
  • Before you arrive make sure you bring a:
    • government issued photo ID (ex: driver's license or passport)
*If it is a replacement UCard, you will need to first pay a replacement fee; details will be in the email.
