Students are considered post-secondary transfer when they have completed 12 units or more from a recognized/accredited institution by December 31 of the year prior to the year of admission for Spring, Summer, and Fall entry; and August 31 for Winter entry (unless otherwise stated).
Admission is competitive and meeting the minimum requirement does not guarantee admission. The minimum admission GPA requirement is 2.00; most programs require a higher admission GPA.
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. In some cases, university transferable coursework may satisfy high school prerequisites.
Students are not permitted to register in a University of Calgary degree, diploma or certificate programs while simultaneously working towards a credential 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.8.1 (Visiting Students).
Applications and supporting documents must be received by the stated deadlines.
Refer to section A.12 (Transfer Credit/Advanced Standing) for information on the transfer of credits.
