Why do I need to give my date of birth when I register?

To maintain security and integrity of our student records, the University of Alberta requires information specific to each individual student; collecting our students’ unique:

  • Date of Birth
  • Legal First Name
  • Legal Last Name; and
  • Gender

helps us ensure we keep each student record unique. Additional detailed facts about an individual student help ensure that we do not mix up registrants who might have the same name or create duplicate records.
