Documentation/Final Marks

The University of Alberta will accept final grades from the school year as presented on the Alberta Education transcript, regardless of whether or not students have written their diploma exams. We will also accept the final grades presented on all transcripts issued by recognized jurisdictions, understanding that adjustments have and are being made in many regions in response to the pandemic.

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.
