University of Calgary Calendar 2009-2010 Undergraduate Admissions A.9 Undergraduate Admission Requirements A.9.2 Adult Student Admission
A.9.2 Adult Student Admission

Applicants, who are 21 years of age or older by the commencement of the term to which they are seeking admission but are unable to present complete matriculation, may request admission as an Adult Student. Acceptance under this category is always at the discretion of the faculty. Only applicants who are Canadian citizens or Permanent Residents may be considered for admission under this category.

Adult Students must present English Language Arts 30-1 or English 30 or an acceptable background. Additional matriculation level subjects, or equivalent, may be and often are required by the faculty to which the student is seeking admission. In addition, the University's requirements for English language proficiency apply to Adult Students (see the section titled English Language Proficiency).

Students applying as Adult Students are required to submit copies of records of their schooling regardless of the last level completed. Applicants who are required to complete certain matriculation level subjects must present documents indicating successful completion prior to admission being granted. Advanced credits, if any, are awarded only upon receipt of official transcripts by the Recruitment and Admissions Office. Students completing Mathematics II through Continuing Education will have their results automatically forwarded to the Recruitment and Admissions Office. However, applicants are asked to indicate on their Application for Admission that these subjects or other subjects are being taken and the expected date of completion.
