Alberta Student Number

What is the Alberta Student Number (ASN)?

The ASN is a single unique number assigned to each Alberta learner. It is used by the Kindergarten to Grade 12 and the post-secondary education systems in Alberta to evaluate programming and emerging trends in student choices. As a result, programs and services for students are improved and better aligned.
