A.5.3 Transferring from Another Postsecondary Institution

Applicants who have attended an accredited/recognized post-secondary institution may be considered for admission on the basis of their postsecondary academic standing. Some programs may require applicants to complete, or be in the process of completing, specific course requirements at the high school or post-secondary level.

To be considered a post-secondary transfer, students must have completed, or be in the process of completing a minimum of 18 units from a recognized/accredited institution (some programs may require more units). The minimum admission GPA requirement is 2.00; however, admission is competitive and meeting the minimum admission GPA requirement does not guarantee admission.

Students who present final grades in fewer than 18 units may be considered for conditional admission and will have their admission GPA calculated on a minimum of 12 units (some faculties may require a minimum of 30 units). See Section A.2 (Undergraduate Admission) for details on unit/credit requirements and how the transfer admission GPA will be determined. Students are not permitted to register in a University of Calgary degree or diploma program while simultaneously working towards a degree or diploma at another institution, unless a formal partnership exists between institutions. Students who wish to attend the University of Calgary as a visiting student (letter of permission) please see Section A.14 (Admission to Open Studies).

Conditional admission will be subject to verification of official transcripts showing final grades. If admission requirements are not met or if official transcripts are not received by June 1, admission and registration will be cancelled.

Applications and supporting documents received by March 31 will be automatically considered for conditional admission.

Please refer to section A.12 (Transfer Credit/Advanced Standing) for information on the transfer of credits.
