Graduate Studies Calendar 2011-2012 Admissions A.5 Offer of Admission
A.5 Offer of Admission

An offer of admission to a graduate program shall specify the program to which the student is admitted in terms of available programs as specified in this Calendar. Any more detailed terms of admission applying to a particular offer shall be specified in the offer. Graduate programs will supply a program specification including the terms of admission to the Faculty of Graduate Studies when recommending that a student be admitted or admitting on behalf of the Faculty of Graduate Studies, and will ensure that copies of any documents cited in the specification are lodged with the Faculty of Graduate Studies.

The program specification shall include course requirements, any full-time requirements, and any other relevant program components. It shall also include any offer of funding and any conditions related to that funding, from the program.

An offer of admission to a prospective student who will attend for a qualifying year must include the courses the prospective student is expected to take to upgrade his or her background to enter the program proper. The offer must include the information that these courses, and the tuition paid during the qualifying year, will not count toward the degree program. No fee credit is given for courses that are taken as a qualifying student.

A student may request that the graduate program defer admission for up to one full year. Deferral is not automatic, and terms of the offer of admission may change. The request must be endorsed by the Graduate Program Director, and the prospective supervisor, where applicable.

If, during a student's program, a change in the program is mutually agreed upon by the student and the graduate program, the program may be changed from that specified as part of the offer of admission, but such variation will not come into effect until it is approved by the Faculty of Graduate Studies. The Change of Program or Status form must be completed and submitted to the Faculty of Graduate Studies for approval. (http://www.grad.ucalgary.ca/forms/registration).
