The Haskayne School of Business has a quota on the number of students accepted into the Bachelor of Commerce program. Admission is competitive and meeting the minimum admission requirements does not guarantee admission.

Those who wish to pursue the Bachelor of Commerce as a second or subsequent undergraduate degree are considered as 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.
