Standard admission is based on five approved courses required for admission to a program. Admission is competitive and meeting the minimum requirement does not guarantee admission. Students presenting an Approved Option as their fifth course must obtain a minimum 65 per cent average on the remaining four courses in addition to meeting the program specific competitive admission average. For students attending schools operating on non-semester system (linear), admission will be based on mid-year (mid-term) grades.
Students must submit their application for admission by March 1 and an interim transcript by March 31 that shows final grades to date and current course registrations. For more information visit: ucalgary.ca/future-students/undergraduate/apply.
Standard Admission Requirements
The admission average will be calculated using five courses including final grade 11 grades and at least two grade 12 academic courses required for admission. If both grade 11 and 12 grades are provided the grade 12 grade will be used.
Students who wish to start in the Fall term and complete required courses during the summer prior to admission may not normally be considered for admission.
Equivalent courses will be considered for students who have completed studies outside the province of Alberta.
