University of Calgary Calendar 2023-2024 Admissions A.4 General Admission Procedures
A.4 General Admission Procedures

Students who wish to be considered for admission to the University must complete an Application for Admission, pay the application fee and submit required documentation to demonstrate they meet the admission requirements (e.g., official transcripts, English language proficiency requirements, etc.). Qualified students who receive a notice of acceptance, will be required to accept the offer of admission and pay an admission deposit prior to registering in courses. Offers of admission are only valid for the term outlined in the admission letter. Students who are not registered in a course(s) after the course drop deadline for their admission term will have their admission cancelled and must complete a new application for admission, unless they have been approved for a deferral of admission.

The University of Calgary reserves the right, published requirements notwithstanding, to refuse applicants for admission or registration, even if they meet the entrance requirements, on the basis of their overall academic records or on the basis of grounds that, in the opinion of the University, are reasonable in the circumstances. If registration is cancelled, the application fee will not be refunded.

All students seeking admission to the University must ensure the information provided as part of their application for admission is true, accurate and complete. Students who falsify or provide misleading or inaccurate information as part of the admission process, up to the add/swap deadline, may have their admission and registration cancelled or have other penalties applied such as changing their admission status to admitted on probation by the Registrar's Office. After the course add/swap deadline, allegations of false, inaccurate or misleading information on a student's application are considered under the student academic misconduct policy. Students who are identified as falsifying or omitting information may be identified to other post-secondary institutions. Falsified documents may be referred to the appropriate authorities for consideration under the Criminal Code of Canada.
