University of Calgary Calendar 2022-2023 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 as a high school student on the basis of their diploma score. Students must have three courses at the higher level with no grades below 3, meet the admission score and complete the specific course requirements for the program to which they have applied. IB Diploma students are considered high school applicants.

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).
