Post Secondary Transfer Applicants

To transfer, students must first apply online and go through the admission process. Those with less than 24 transferable credits completed are assessed on their high school courses/grades. For those with 24 or more transferable credits, admission is based on AGPA (Admission Grade Point Average) as well as presenting five high school prerequisite courses. AGPA is calculated on all university transferable coursework completed in the final two terms of study (if the final two terms contain a minimum of 24 credits. If those two terms contain less than 24 credits, all work in the next most recent term(s) is included in the calculation until the minimum total of 24 credits is reached.
Please note that for credit to count towards the minimum of ★24 required to be evaluated as a post-secondary applicant, it must be transferable to the University of Alberta but not necessarily the program itself.
