University of Calgary Calendar 2018-2019 Admissions A.2 Undergraduate Admission
A.2 Undergraduate Admission

Applicants must meet the minimum standards indicated in this Calendar. Applicants seeking admission to the Faculties of Environmental Design, Graduate Studies, Law, Cumming School of Medicine (MD program), and Veterinary Medicine are advised to contact these Faculties directly for admission procedures.

All applicants must satisfy the undergraduate admission requirements and faculty specific admission requirements. Admission to all programs at the University of Calgary is competitive. The admission average required to secure an offer of admission will be determined once the qualifications of the applicant pool have been assessed for each faculty/program; therefore, meeting the minimum admission requirement does not guarantee admission. While every attempt will be made to accept all qualified applicants to the University of Calgary, enrolment will be limited to the number of students that can be accommodated by the resources available to maintain an acceptable quality of education.

High School Admission Average: will be calculated using the five approved courses required for admission by the selected faculty (see Section A.5 or visit The University will determine the equivalent for applicants whose courses were completed outside of the Alberta secondary school system.
