Travel Guide for International Students

Coming from abroad

Crandall University is excited to welcome our international students travelling to New Brunswick, Canada. We encourage all students to understand as much as possible about the procedures required for travelling internationally.

Travelling to Canada

Ensure you are registered for your courses

  • Only students who are registered for courses will be eligible to study at Crandall University.
  • Registration requests are sent out by email approximately 2-months prior to the beginning of your program.

  • Students are encouraged not to travel to Canada more than 4-weeks before their first class. Canada Border Services may reject entry if arriving too early.
  • Students are required to attend orientation sessions prior to beginning their program. Dates will be emailed to all new students in advance of the start of term.
