Students wishing to transfer should refer to the Alberta Transfer Guide which lists all course and program transfer agreements between post-secondary institutions in Alberta, Northwest Territories and Nunavut. The guide and other transfer information are available online at http://www.transferalberta.ca or by contacting: Alberta Council on Admissions and Transfer, 909, 9942 - 108 Street, Edmonton, Alberta T5K 2J5. Telephone: 780.422.9021 or 310-0000 (toll free). E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students from other universities or colleges may be admitted with advanced credit in undergraduate programs. The amount of advanced credit that may be granted is limited and determined by faculty regulations, which provide that a student proceeding toward a first degree is normally required to complete a specified number of University of Calgary courses within a specified time limit.
Students transferring from other institutions into programs at the University of Calgary must make themselves aware of the appropriate required (prerequisite) preparation for courses they wish to take. This may be done by consulting the Courses of Instruction section of this Calendar. Students receiving specified transfer credit status for particular courses should be aware that this does not necessarily imply that exact course equivalence is being awarded, but that this may indicate an equivalent level of experience in a subject area.
Students transferring to the University of Calgary who have attended publicly supported post-secondary institutions in Alberta shall be subject to the same regulations as those transferring from one faculty to another within the University. The University of Calgary will honour all extant transfer of credit arrangements as listed in the Alberta Transfer Guide.
Students who have taken the equivalent of university courses in some other manner may be given advanced placement (i.e., excused from taking such courses) but will not be granted advanced credit in them. They will be required to substitute other courses to complete a program of normal weight at this University.
The University reserves the right to require applicants for advanced credit or advanced placement to write examinations at any level including that of matriculation standing.
