Adjustments to the Fall 2021 Admissions Process

Documentation/Final Marks

The Alberta Ministry of Education has announced that diploma exams will be optional for students who are scheduled to write them in October/November (the first quarter of this school year for those students in the quarterly system). The University of Alberta will accept final, first-quarter grades from the 2020-21 school year as presented on the Alberta Education transcript, regardless of whether or not students have written their diploma exams. 

In order to ensure clarity around our admissions process, the university will continue to follow this practice for any future instances where diploma exams are deemed optional or cancelled by the Alberta Ministry of Education in response to COVID-19.

English Language Proficiency (ELP)

International applicants who are required to demonstrate English Language Proficiency and had intended to fulfill that requirement using English Language Arts 30-1 will only be able to do so if they write the diploma exam. If students don’t write the diploma exam, they will be required to demonstrate ELP with acceptable scores in an English language proficiency test. Additional details related to language requirements are available here.
