Accordion Content

English is the official language of instruction at the University of Calgary. All applicants must demonstrate English language proficiency to be considered for admission to an undergraduate program. There are three ways to meet our English language entrance requirements: Academic studies, English language test scores, and the Academic Communications Certificate (ACC).

Academic studies

To meet the English language requirements with your Academic studies, you must have completed three years of high school studies with English as the primary language of instruction at an accredited Canadian, American or British curricula high school (including CIS) or two years full-time study in English at an accredited or recognized post-secondary institution in Canada or in a University of Calgary approved English-speaking country

English language test scores

If your academic studies do not fulfil UCalgary's English language requirements, you can present one of the minimum scores listed in the Academic Calendar

Note: Our school code for the TOEFL exam is 0813, and the department code is 00.

Academic Communications Certificate (ACC)

The ACC is the UCalgary English pathway program. If you are registered in the ACC you may be eligible for conditional admission to a degree program. The ACC will take from 4 to 11 months to complete depending on your English level and is eligible for 6 units of transfer credit. Learn more here
