An undergraduate Application for Admission must be completed by students who wish to be admitted to an undergraduate degree or diploma program. The University of Calgary participates with the Alberta Post-Secondary Application System. The Application for Admission is available online at http://www.ucalgary.ca/.
Students wishing to enter the Faculties of Environmental Design, Graduate Studies, Law, Medicine (MD), or Veterinary Medicine should contact the appropriate faculty office for application for admission forms.
Students wishing to register as Visiting, Exchange or Open Studies (degree or non-degree) students must complete the designated application/registration forms available from Enrolment Services or at http://www.ucalgary.ca/registrar under Forms for Students.
Students who have been suspended, expelled or required to withdraw from a faculty at the University of Calgary must reapply for admission to the University by the stated deadlines. Such applicants will not receive preference over new applicants. Students who have been required to withdraw should refer to the Required to Withdraw Students section for further information.
Students who have not attended the University of Calgary for two years or more (one year or more for the Faculty of Nursing and the Schulich School of Engineering) or who are applying to the Bachelor of Education after degree program or who attended most recently as Visiting or Open Studies students or who have attended another institution since leaving the University of Calgary must submit a new Application for Admission. Students who have attended another institution since leaving the University must submit official transcripts of their record from such institutions. Official transcripts are those transcripts which are forwarded directly to the University from other educational institutions. Please note that when an application is completed through the Alberta Post-Secondary Application System (APAS), students authorize the University of Calgary to request transcripts on their behalf from Alberta Education and other participating Alberta institutions, if attended.
It should also be noted that hard copy files of students who have not attended the University for five years will be destroyed (three years if a degree was obtained). At the time of seeking readmission to the University, it will be determined if new official transcripts need to be resubmitted from previously attended institutions.
Any student who applied for admission to the University, but never attended, must complete a new Application for Admission and submit official transcripts. All documents are destroyed after being held for a period of one year.
Incomplete applications or those submitted without the application fee will not be processed. Complete applications and/or the application fee must be submitted to the Recruitment and Admissions Office prior to the application deadline to be considered for admission for the term indicated. The University accepts no responsibility for denials of admission based on the failure of applicants to submit their applications and/or fees in a timely manner.
Prospective applicants should not wait until the results of test scores and/or final high school results are received before applying for admission.
