2. How can I meet the Math Requirement if I've already finished high school? What is an equivalent to Mathematics 30-1?

In lieu of Mathematics 30-1, students may take an equivalent:

  • U of L's Mathematics 0500
  • Athabasca's MATH 101 with minimum grade of 75*
  • Lethbridge College's MTH 0095*

*Please note these math courses do not transfer to the U of L.

Currently, students have two semesters to complete the math requirement upon admission. Starting Fall 2016, students will need to meet the math requirement before applying to the U of L.
