To be considered, you must meet all eligibility requirements (including the English Language Proficiency Requirements of the University of Alberta).
The preprofessional GPA is compiled from grades on the required courses or their equivalents.
The cumulative GPA is also considered.
In deriving these GPAs, the best eligible marks are used. For example, if candidates take a more advanced version of a required course and obtain a better mark, that mark will be used to calculate the GPA. Similarly, for the 3-credit options, the course receiving the best grade will be chosen.
Because MLS is a quota program that has more applicants than available positions, admission is competitive. An admissions committee meets to consider applicants anonymously. The requirements considered include:
- Preprofessional GPA
- Cumulative GPA
- Letter of Intent
- Personal interview
