International Students

International Students Program Information

Chinook welcomes individual International students to enrol in our High School Upgrading and Summer School programs. International students 19 years of age and younger may enrol in daytime and evening classes. International students over 20 years of age may enrol in evening Fall and Winter classes as well as Summer School classes.

At Chinook, you may:

  • Obtain Alberta high school credits
  • Prepare for your post-secondary education
  • Study with highly qualified teachers who will help you meet your academic goals


Call Chinook Learning Services at 403-777-7200 to set up an appointment with an Academic Advisor. If Chinook Learning Services is able to offer the appropriate courses for you we will issue a Letter of Acceptance upon receipt of a registration form and payment of tuition fees in full. You must also provide a TOEFL or IELTS score. International students must obtain a valid Study Permit prior to the beginning of the semester. If you have a Study Permit, you are required to be a full-time student.


When you are on campus, an advisor is available to help you plan your program of studies after an assessment of your language and other academic skills.
