English Language Proficiency
International students must meet English language proficiency requirements. Please review the options for meeting requirements prior to application.
Students who do not meet English Language Proficiency may be eligible for the University of Alberta's Bridging Program.
Students from our partner institutions may be eligible for up to 60 transfer credits. Transfer credit assessments are not completed until after a student has applied and official transcripts have been received. Once final transcripts are received, previous coursework is compared to the requirements of the new program and credit is given where appropriate overlap and sufficient grades exist.
Although a course may be considered transferable to UAlberta, it may not fit within the program to which a student has applied. Due to volume of applications, we cannot assess transfer credit (in person, via phone or email) prior to admission.
The Faculty of Agricultural, Life and Environmental Sciences rewards excellent academic achievement by offering our 2+2 partners undergraduate scholarships to top performing students. 2+2 students who have a competitive Grade Point Average of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale will receive our $1000 CAD scholarship. The student with the highest GPA will receive a scholarship of $2500 CAD towards their tuition. You will be automatically considered for this award as a 2+2 student!
