University of Calgary Calendar 2015-2016 International Foundations Program Q.2 Language Assessment
Q.2 Language Assessment

An IFP Language Assessment is conducted in order to determine placement within the program.

A. IFP Pathways students will not participate in internal IFP placement testing. Requirements for English Language Proficiency are met by external assessments listed in Admission Requirements.

Schulich School of Engineering admission requirements must also be met, and may be found at https://www.ucalgary.ca/pubs/calendar/current/en-3-1.html.

B. IFP Bridging students will be assessed by IFP at the beginning of each term. Results from internal IFP placement testing will then place all IFP Bridging students into the appropriate courses of the program (Tiers 1-3). IFP Bridging students whose placement test results indicate placement below IFP Bridging Tier 1 will have their admission to their degree program rescinded but may choose to apply to IFP Preparation to achieve ELP requirements. Students must be present for the language assessment prior to the start of scheduled classes. If unable to attend, students must notify the IFP Academic Co-ordinator (ifp@ucalgary.ca). Failure to notify the Co-ordinator will result in cancellation of their acceptance into the IFP Bridging stream. Additionally, students applying to IFP Bridging must meet the admission requirements of the faculty to which they are applying. Students requiring letters of acceptance for immigration purposes are strongly encouraged to apply early due to varying processing times required by Canadian Immigration in each country.

C. IFP Preparation students will be assessed by IFP at the beginning of each term. Results from internal IFP placement testing will then place all IFP Preparation students into the appropriate courses of the stream (Tiers 1-3).

Students must be present for the language assessment prior to the start of scheduled classes. If unable to attend, students must notify the IFP Academic Co-ordinator (ifp@ucalgary.ca). Failure to notify the Co-ordinator will result in cancellation of their acceptance into the IFP Preparation stream. Students requiring letters of acceptance for immigration purposes are strongly encouraged to apply early due to varying processing times required by Canadian Immigration in each country.
