General Information and Policies

(subject to change)

Admission Scholarships are offered to students admitted to the University of Calgary directly from high school on the basis of their high school grades and who are entering the first year of an undergraduate degree program.

  • Eligibility: For students entering in the upcoming Fall Term who have been admitted to an undergraduate degree program at the University of Calgary with a final admission average of 80.0 per cent or higher.

Students entering the English for Academic Purposes (EAP) program or the English for Academic Purposes + Degree program are not eligible for these awards, and will be considered prior to entering the first year of an undergraduate degree program. Please see the Student Awards website (www.ucalgary.ca/studentfinance) for more information.

Students entering the first year of an undergraduate degree program with transfer credit from either the University of Calgary or another post-secondary institution are not normally eligible for these awards.

Recipients of Chancellor's Club Scholarships, Seymour Schulich Academic Excellence Scholarships, Seymour Schulich Community Service/Entrepreneurial Awards and BHSc Scholarships are not eligible to receive a President's Admission Scholarship or a University of Calgary Entrance Scholarship.

  • Application: Not required. Students are considered automatically for these scholarships based on their early admission average; the scholarship offer is conditional and is based on their final admission average to the University of Calgary.
  • Notification: Recipients are notified in writing after their final admission average is determined by the Admissions Office.
  • Registration Requirement(s): Recipients must maintain full-time enrolment through the upcoming Fall and Winter Terms.
  • Renewability: The value of the President's Admission Scholarship is renewable at $2,000 or $2,500 in second year at the University of Calgary provided the recipient earns a minimum GPA of 3.70 on a minimum of 24.00 units over the previous Fall and Winter Terms.
  • Spring and summer courses are not used to reduce course load requirements, nor are they used in calculating the GPA required for renewal.
