University of Calgary Calendar 2015-2016 Undergraduate Admissions A.9 Undergraduate Admission Requirements
A.9 Undergraduate Admission Requirements

Prospective applicants to undergraduate programs can refer to the "Admission Program Requirements" on the website at: to identify the specific requirements they need to gain admission to a specific faculty or program.

Admission to an undergraduate program may be obtained under one of three categories:

(i) Standard Admission

(ii) Adult Student Admission

(iii) Transfer Students

Applicants attending on a part-time basis, in the evening, or on the weekend are required to meet the same admission requirements as full-time or day students. Please refer to section A.1.1 of the Calendar for more detailed information on attending as an Open Studies or Visiting student.

Applicants wishing to be considered for admission to a second bachelor's degree or a diploma program after having completed a first degree must present an approved degree from an "accredited" institution with a minimum of three years of recognized university-level course work. Applicants not satisfying the above criteria will only be considered for admission to the regular four year baccalaureate degree with advanced credit, as may be applicable to the program. For more information regarding the regulations governing second degrees, please refer to A.9.5 Second Baccalaureate Degrees.

All applicants must demonstrate English language proficiency (refer to A.17 English Language Proficiency). In addition, all applicants are referred to the admission requirements as listed in the faculty sections of this Calendar.

Note: Enrolment in all programs and faculties may be limited due to space and/or resource restrictions.
