How to Apply as an International Student

If you’re not a Canadian or U.S. citizen, apply as an international student in four simple steps.  

1. Submit your application fee

A $150 non-refundable application fee is required prior to receiving a link to your online International Student application.

Booth UC partners with Flywire to streamline the international payment process. Flywire allows you to pay securely from any country and any bank, typically in your home currency. Flywire allows you to track your payments from start to finish, save on bank fees and exchange rates, and get multilingual customer support anytime. 

Go to or download the Flywire mobile app to begin the payment process for your application fee.

If you have questions about making a payment please contact Admissions.

2. Apply online

Complete your online application using the link provided to you by email. You will receive this after your $150 non-refundable application fee is received by Booth UC.

Note: If you’re applying to the Bachelor of Social Work degree program, applications are due April 30. Visit the Social Work degree program admission page for details.

3. Arrange for official transcripts 

Arrange for all of your official transcripts, including high school and college or university records, to be sent to Booth University College’s Admissions Office. Transcripts should be delivered unopened or sent directly from the issuing school to our Admissions Office.

For applicants with a MyCreds account, you can share your digital documents with us by selecting the Share option “Send my documents to a registered organization” and then selecting the Booth University College in the Recipient field.

4. Accept the offer of admission with a tuition deposit 

When you’re offered admission to Booth University College, a non-refundable $500 tuition deposit will be required prior to receiving your letter of acceptance. Payment can be made using Flywire from your home country or by credit card if you are in Canada.

Optional English program

While it’s common for new university students to struggle with the adjustment from high school to university, international students have the additional challenges of adjusting to a new culture, being away from home, and for some – studying in a second language. Booth University College works in cooperation with Heartland International English School to provide international students the option to take a multi-skill program that will help with their transition to life in Canada and prepare them for success in their university studies. Through this program, international students are given the opportunity to improve their English skills without the pressure of university coursework. Features of this program include:

  • Academic English classes prepare students for essay writing, note-taking, presenting and speaking in class, and other academic skills.
  • Initial settlement support helps students adjust to life in Canada by assisting with immediate details such as setting up a bank account, obtaining a Manitoba Health card, navigating the public transit system, and more.

Heartland’s two-week International English School is held in August, prior to the start of the school year. Students wishing to take this course are fully responsible for the costs of this program and must register directly with Heartland International English School. Booth University College is not responsible for students registered in this program and cannot guarantee admission to Booth University College programs based on completion of the Heartland International English School program without having previously met all admission criteria set forward by Booth University College.

International student health plans

Purchasing an International Student Emergency Health Plan as well as Extended Health and Dental coverage is mandatory for all international students registered at Booth University College. You do not need to register or apply for the International Student Health Plan as this will be done automatically and will be included in your fee payments.

International student recruiters

In accordance with the International Education Act, schools are required to list the names
of individuals who have been retained specifically to recruit international students.

Booth University College’s international student recruiter is Dr. Uche Nwankwo.
