Considering UCalgary

Go beyond admission policies with prospective student advising. Explore program content and structure. Talk about major/minor combinations and online tools. Review your academic history and compare programs to find a good fit.

Considering UCalgary

While prospective students are welcome to attend drop-in hours, we suggest you book a scheduled appointment to ensure there is enough time to provide you with all the information you may need.

How to Book an appointment


  1. Please call the Student Success Centre at 403-220-5881.
  2. Request an Academic Advisor, Exploratory Students appointment. 

Prospective student advising is right for you if:

  • You are currently completing high school and plan to apply to the University of Calgary
  • You are currently in another college or university and considering transferring to the University of Calgary
  • You have partially completed a degree years ago and would now like to complete it
  • You are an adult student considering university for the first time

What should I bring to my appointment?

  • Specific questions (we appreciate them)
  • Undergraduate degree programs you find interesting (it’s okay if you don’t know)
  • A sense of admission requirements if you have programs in mind (you can find that information here)

Already have a degree in mind?

Meet with these advisors first:

  • Applying for undergraduate studies: The Undergraduate Admissions and Recruitment team can help you understand admission requirements.
  • Applying for graduate studies: The graduate program administrator within the department you will apply for can help you understand admission requirements.
  • Applying for Open Studies: The admissions team can discuss Open Studies requirements. The Exploratory Team can help you understand your transition into a degree program.
  • Are you an international student: We don't offer a pre-evaluation service. If you need help with admissions we recommend speaking with the admissions team to begin.
