University of Calgary Calendar 2016-2017 Undergraduate Admissions A.5 Undergraduate Admission Requirements A.5.2 International High School Admissions A.5.2.1 International Baccalaureate (IB)
A.5.2.1 International Baccalaureate (IB)

Applicants who have completed the International Baccalaureate diploma can be considered for admission on the basis of their diploma score. Students must meet the score and specific course requirements for the 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.

The University of Calgary awards up to 30 units (one year) for the completed International Baccalaureate diploma. Specific course credit for Higher Level courses is awarded as set out in Section A.12 Transfer Credit/Advanced Standing.

Students awarded the full year of credit for a completed International Baccalaureate diploma remain eligible for all admission categories and University awards normally open to entering first-year students.

Conditions of Admission

Students admitted on the basis of predicted IB results which include the anticipated grades in both individual courses, including those required for the specific program and additional points for essay and Theory of Knowledge, must meet the conditions of their admission by August 1. Conditions are removed upon receipt of the final official transcripts confirming that course requirements have been met. Students who fail to meet this requirement or do not provide final official transcripts by August 1 will have their admission and registration cancelled.
