The University of Calgary acknowledges and respects the rich diversity of learners, their communities, cultures and traditions, and their aspirations and abilities. In order to ensure equitable access and successful participation of Indigenous learners, the University of Calgary offers a number of bridging/pathways options for eligible students of Indigenous ancestry, i.e., First Nations (status and non-status), Métis and Inuit.
Indigenous students who wish to be considered through Indigenous Admissions for an undergraduate program will be considered provided they:
- Are an Indigenous person of Canada (First Nations (Status or Non-Status), Métis or Inuit).
- Self-identify their indigenous status in the application for admission. Students admitted through a pathway option (see section A.5.6.1, A.5.6.2 or A.5.6.3) will be required to verify their Indigenous ancestry prior to course registration. Details on documentation is available at ucalgary.ca/future-students/undergraduate/indigenous/admissions_process.
- Complete the undergraduate admission application requirements as outlined below.
