ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

Applicants normally must meet the following minimum requirements before the University will consider admission:

  • A University of Lethbridge baccalaureate degree, or its academic equivalent from another recognized degree-granting institution, in the discipline of interest or in a closely cognate discipline. The University of Lethbridge reserves the right to determine whether degrees and other academic programs completed elsewhere are equivalent to University of Lethbridge baccalaureate degrees. Applied and Technology Degrees are not normally considered to be a basis of admission for graduate studies programs.
  • A minimum grade point average of 3.00 (based on a 4.00 scale) on the last 20 graded university-level semester courses.

Applicants are considered on a case-by-case basis. Preference is given to students whose proposed research is related to the supervisor’s funded research program.

Applicants whose first language is not English must meet the English Language Proficiency (ELP) Requirement for Graduate Studies.
