We encourage you to apply early, as meeting the minimum or competitive average does not guarantee admission, and space in each program is limited.
The University of Alberta provides a wide range of programs, from highly accessible to highly competitive.
In order to be considered for admission, you need to present an academic average within the competitive range for your faculty/program of choice, based on the required courses for that program.
The competitive range varies for each faculty/program each year, depending on the competitiveness of the applicant pool.
In addition to presenting a competitive average when you apply, you must also meet the university’s minimum admission requirements after receiving an admission offer in order to remain eligible.
