University of Calgary Calendar 2019-2020 Admissions A.5 Undergraduate Admission Requirements A.5.1 Canadian High School Students A.5.1.2 Standard Admission Process for Current High School Students
A.5.1.2 Standard Admission Process for Current High School Students

The standard admission process considers five courses required for admission to a specific program. The admission average will be calculated using five courses at the 20 or 30 level (or equivalent). Approved subjects and approved option subjects are listed in section A.5.1.1 (see Approved Courses and Approved Options). At least one approved course must be at the 30 level (or equivalent). If grades for a 20-level and 30-level courses are provided in the same subject, the 30-level grade will be used.

For the Schulich School Engineering the standard admission process will be based on four courses if a grade for Mathematics 31 is not available.

Equivalent courses will be used for students who have completed studies outside the province of Alberta. For information on course equivalencies visit:

Admitted students must complete all 30-level (or equivalent) course requirements outlined in A.5.1.1, maintain the admission average required for admission in the application year and obtain the Alberta Grade 12 Graduation (or equivalent).

Students presenting an approved option as their fifth course must obtain a minimum 65 per cent average on the remaining four courses in addition to meeting the program specific competitive admission average.

Students attending a non-semester school (linear) will be considered for admission using mid-term grades.
