Competitive Averages

We encourage students to apply early, as admission is competitive, works on a rolling basis and space in each program is limited. To better serve prospective students, historical admission averages are now listed at uab.ca/averages.

Please note: these historical admission averages do not serve as a guarantee for future admission.

Supporting Your Students

Every student is different so we want to provide you with all of the information and resources you require to suit their needs. Whether it’s additional support or enhanced opportunities, we can help.

AP / IB Students

We recognize the achievements of AP and IB students and want them to continue their studies here at the U of A. When assessing applications, we will use their AP or IB grade if it is higher than the provincial equivalent. Students can also be recognized with transfer credit, advanced placement or credit by special assessment.

Learn more by visiting AP Students and IB Students.

Indigenous Students

Our Indigenous Students page contains more information about admission options, the Transition Year Program, as well as student services and support, special events, student housing and more.

We're also able to support Indigenous students who are considering applying for post-secondary through one-on-one advising and assistance with a variety of topics.
