1. A prospective student presenting more than 6 units (1.0 full-course equivalent) transferable courses from a post-secondary institution (including the University of Calgary), and applying to transfer into the BComm program, must first successfully complete a minimum of 18 prescribed units (3.0 full-course equivalents) by the end of the Winter Term (January - April) of the year of application.
Assistance in program planning is available through the Haskayne Undergraduate Programs Office.
2. A maximum of 12 units (2.0 full-course equivalents) with "D" or "D+" grades may be used to fulfill commerce requirements. The "D" or "D+" grades cannot be in prerequisite courses or in the junior English course. The minimum grade required in a prerequisite course is "C-", unless the course serves as the prerequisite to the concentration sought. In this case it must be a "C". The minimum grade required in the junior English course is a "C-".
3. Admission to the Haskayne School of Business will be based on the calculation of the grade point average over the most recent course work to a maximum of 30 units (5.0 full-course equivalents) (University of Calgary courses and/or transfer courses taken at other institutions). All grades within a term will be included except where the number of courses taken within a term exceeds that required to fulfill (to a maximum of) 30 units (5.0 full-course equivalents), in which case the highest grades will be used. Spring Intersession courses taken after May 1 in the year of admission will not be used in the calculation of the grade point average.
4. Admission is competitive. For consideration, applicants must have a minimum grade point average of 2.50 (calculated as outlined in point 3. above). The final minimum average required to secure an offer of admission will be determined once the qualifications of the applicant pool have been assessed.
5. Transfer applicants must present official transcripts to the Office of the Registrar indicating time spent and grades received in all courses being presented to satisfy pre-commerce requirements or for advanced standing in the Bachelor of Commerce program.
6. Those applicants attending Spring Intersession in order to complete courses other than the 18 prescribed units (3.0 full-course equivalents) mentioned above, if admitted, will be admitted provisionally subject to successful academic standing and continued compliance with program regulations.
7. Courses or their equivalents presented to fulfill pre-commerce requirements must not have been repeated more than once.
