Deferral of Undergraduate Admission Request
Deferral of admission requests are considered on a case by case basis relating to exceptional circumstances* only and approval is not guaranteed.
Deferrals are not considered as a result of preference for course delivery mode. This includes deferral requests to start in the Winter 2021 term. We understand that this is an uncertain time. We want to assure you that we will continue to provide high quality learning experiences – no matter how our programs are delivered.
Decisions will be communicated in writing beginning late-July to the address provided on this form.
*exceptional circumstances are unforeseen and extraordinary situations that are typically of a short-term nature and have a clear and definitive end date.
Admission to all programs at the University of Calgary are competitive. The admission average required to secure an offer of admission is determined once the qualifications of the applicant pool have been assessed for each faculty/program; therefore, enrolment is limited to the number of students that can be accommodated by the resources available to maintain an acceptable quality of education.
Due to the limited number of spaces available each year, deferrals of admission can only be supported for exceptional cases as it reduces the number of seats available for the next year.\
Please note admission terms are defined as follows:
Fall – September start
Winter – January start
Spring – May start
Summer – July start
