• A place for everyone. A place for everyone.

    Algoma is a diverse community committed to providing a well-rounded education and cross-cultural learning experience. Our curricula, faculty, and student life support individual growth and success. At Algoma, we provide you with the opportunity to do more and go farther.

  • The support you need. The support you need.

    Because Algoma is a small university, you get a lot of personal attention and support right from the start. Our team of advisors, staff, and department heads are available to introduce you to our distinct programs and services, answer your questions, and help you make the right choice.

  • It’s who you know.

    At Algoma, it’s not unusual for prospective students to get a call from President Rick Myers or be invited to his house for dinner. Red-carpet treatment? No, it’s just another great advantage of attending a small university. You get to know the people who shape your future.

  • An affordable education.

    A great education does not have to cost a lot. Algoma’s tuition is less than the provincial average and our scholarships are the best in Ontario. Once you’ve applied, we will match you with any additional aid to make sure you receive the most funding available.

  • Come for a visit!

    When choosing a university, there is no substitute for a campus visit. A tour of Algoma allows you to experience our beautiful campus, small classes, and close-knit community for yourself. Get on the bus, attend Fall Preview, or arrange for a personal visit – the Algoma experience is waiting!
