Admission into the Petroleum Land Management Concentration will be competitive based on academic performance, an interview and other required documents. Only those students entering third year of the Bachelor of Commerce program will be considered for admission into the Petroleum Land Management Concentration.

To be eligible for first year admission consideration, applicants must be coming directly from high school and/or presenting no more than six units (1.0 full-course equivalent) transferable courses from a post-secondary institution (including the University of Calgary). Applicants presenting more than six units (1.0 full-course equivalent) transferable courses from a post-secondary institution (including the University of Calgary), will be considered for admission following the successful completion of a prescribed set of pre-commerce requirements.

Those who wish to pursue the Bachelor of Commerce as a second or subsequent undergraduate degree are advised that they will be required to follow the admission procedures and meet the requirements in place for transfer applicants to the program. For additional regulations regarding admission to a second undergraduate degree, refer to A.5.5 Second-Degree Students in the Admissions section of this Calendar.

Students not registering for the admission term must reapply for admission into the program.

Students are advised to register for courses as soon as they are eligible to ensure the best selection.

The Haskayne School of Business reserves the right to rescind the offer of admission if course registration has not taken place within a three week period. The admission procedures are the responsibility of the Haskayne Undergraduate Programs Office.
