Students may be admitted to the M.Sc. program in order to begin their studies on January 1 (Spring), May 1 (Summer) or September 1 (Fall).
Please note that all paper work must be received by the Registrar's Office on or before the deadlines.
|Fall (First Round)*
|Fall (Second Round)*
* There are two rounds of admission for Fall (September 1) entry to the M.Sc. program. The Second Round of admission is intended for applicants who are unable to confirm funding from external agencies (e.g., NSERC) before February 1. Applicants who can confirm funding before February 1 should submit their application for the First Round of admission. Spaces are limited in these programs; early applications are encouraged. Applicants who choose an Addictions Counselling, Health Sciences, or Nursing major in the M.Sc. program are accepted for admission to the Fall semester only and must apply by February 1.
Academic Qualifications for Admission
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 (see English Language Proficiency for Graduate Students).
