Applicants who have completed the International Baccalaureate diploma can be considered for admission on the basis of their total diploma score. Students must meet the total score and specific course requirements set for the Faculty or degree program to which they have applied.
For applicants who complete both the International Baccalaureate diploma and senior matriculation/secondary school graduation, admission will be based on that credential which is to the advantage of the student.
Regardless of the basis of admission, the University of Calgary awards a full year of credit (five full-course equivalents) for the completed International Baccalaureate diploma. Specific course credit for Higher Level courses is awarded as set out in the Alternatives to Regular Course Credit section of this Calendar. The balance of credit required to bring the total to five full-course equivalents will be at the junior unassigned option level.
Students awarded the full year of credit for the completed International Baccalaureate diploma remain eligible for all admission categories and University awards normally open to entering first-year students.
