Home Education Admission Policy/Process/Procedure

Please Note: Directives are intended for students who lack Alberta Programs of Study Accreditation and serve only as guidelines when seeking or preparing for admission equivalents (alternatives) to Alberta 30 level requirements.
Specific admission requirements vary with programs.

General Entry Requirements Applicants for our undergraduate programs must: Have, at minimum, the equivalent of a Canadian high school (Grade 12) diploma, with an overall average of C or better (2.00 on a 4.33 scale). This average is calculated based on the grade for British Columbia English 12 (or equivalent) and the best three additional academic Grade 12 courses. If you have graduated from high school but do not meet the minimum grade levels, you may still be considered for admission if you have successfully completed at least 30 academic post-secondary credits at a recognized institution. Special Considerations In certain circumstances, applicants who have not completed the equivalent of a Canadian High School (Grade 12) diploma, or who do not meet the minimum admissions requirements, maybe accepted into an undergraduate program. Such applicants must: - Be over twenty-one (21) years of age on or before the first day of classes - Have been out of high school for at least two years - Be approved by the Admissions Committee In lieu of a high school diploma, the Admissions Committee will consider if the applicant has the work experience, or a combination of education and experience, that indicates their ability to be successful in their program of study.
