COVID-19 Graduate Admissions FAQ

The University of Lethbridge recognizes that these are unprecedented times. As a result, our guiding principle will be that the impact of COVID-19 should not disadvantage any applicant to programs offered by the University of Lethbridge. All of our programs will have the flexibility in their admissions processes to ensure that this principle is being upheld.

It has been a challenging time for all of us but know this: our students and their success remain the focus of all we do. Your success is our priority. This FAQ was developed to answer some questions you may have and to put your mind at ease. Please contact the relevant graduate programs office if you have additional questions.
