New applicants should refer to A.2 in the Admissions section of this Calendar for regulations regarding University admission. Students wishing to enrol in the Schulich School of Engineering must meet minimum admission requirements for Standard Admission as set out in the Admissions section (A.5.1.1) of this Calendar.
Students required to withdraw from another faculty or another post-secondary educational institution because of an unsatisfactory academic record will not normally be considered for admission to the Schulich School of Engineering within 12 months of the withdrawal. Students seeking admission or readmission to the Schulich School of Engineering who have been determined (through due process) to be guilty of academic or non-academic misconduct at this or any other academic institution must accompany their application with a letter of explanation and will be considered for admission on an individual basis. Students who have been expelled from the Schulich School of Engineering may not apply for readmission.
Applicants coming directly from high school must present English Language Arts 30-1, Mathematics 30-1, Mathematics 31, Physics 30 and Chemistry 30 to be considered for admission. Applicants may also be considered for admission via the Biology-based admissions route (see A.5.1.1) if they present English Language Arts 30-1, Mathematics 30-1, Mathematics 31, Biology 30 and Chemistry 30. Offers of admission via this route are conditional on successful completion of the Schulich School of Engineering Summer Bioengineering Institute prior to the start of the engineering program. Applicants must apply for admission and submit final transcripts by the deadlines indicated in Section A.3 of the University Calendar.
Students who have never taken Mathematics 31 and present another matriculation subject (e.g., Biology 30, Social Studies 30) instead of Mathematics 31 and who achieve a high standing (at least five per cent above the admission standard) over the five subjects used for admission purposes may be admitted to the School under special conditions. These conditions involve enrolment in an alternative calculus stream.
Students who have attended a post-secondary institution must apply for admission and submit transcripts by the deadlines indicated in Section A.3 of the University Calendar. All applicants must present senior matriculation standing, or equivalent, in the five specified high school subjects, even though they may have attended a post-secondary institution.
Students who have been admitted to SSE Indigenous Pathways Program under the Indigenous Admissions Supplementary process, section A.5.6.2, will enter into the SSE Pathway within the common core. The pathway is individualized to each student and will be finalized after admission in consultation with the Indigenous Pathways Program Coordinator. In the program, students will be required to successfully complete (with a minimum grade of "C-") one or more of the following foundations courses (or equivalents): Engineering Foundations 111, 121, 131, 141, English 251. Students in the SSE Pathway may take courses in the First Year Curriculum (see Section 4.1) after completing the foundation course prerequisite. After successful completion of the courses in the common core, students who started in the Indigenous Pathways Program will be guaranteed entry into their engineering major of choice.
Applicants who have a CEAB-accredited engineering degree may be considered for admission to a subsequent engineering degree at the University of Calgary if the degree program requested is determined by the Associate Dean (Student Affairs) to be sufficiently different from the prior degree program. A minimum of 30 units is required for completion of a University degree. Students admitted under this regulation may, depending on how much transfer credit they are granted, have the Minimum Residence Time regulation waived.
