Conditional Admission

Admission decisions are based on the information available at the time that the application is reviewed. Conditional offers of admission may be issued in anticipation of fulfillment of the admission requirements by the appropriate deadline.

Offers of admission are not reissued upon fulfillment of the conditions. However, the Registrar’s Office will issue a letter confirming that all conditions have been met upon request by the applicant.

Admission may be rescinded and/or registration privileges may be restricted if official documentation that confirms the applicant’s eligibility for admission is not received by the Registrar’s Office by the appropriate deadline.

Applicants Currently Attending High School

Offers of admission to applicants who are currently completing secondary courses at a high school or upgrading at a post-secondary institution, in Canada or elsewhere, will be conditional upon satisfactory completion of courses in progress. Satisfactory completion is defined as final grades and averages that meet or exceed the minimum general and program admission requirements, including current competitive standards.

Applicants Currently Attending Post-Secondary

Offers of admission to applicants who are currently attending a post-secondary institution in Canada or elsewhere, including the University of Lethbridge, will be based on all courses and grades reported to date, provided they are in their last year of study at their current institution. Such offers will be conditional upon satisfactory completion of all outstanding courses prior to the appropriate deadline. Satisfactory completion is defined as final grades and grade point averages that meet or exceed the minimum general and program admission requirements, including current competitive standards.

Pending Final Official Documents

Offers of admission to applicants for whom the University has not received all final, official transcripts and other supporting documents will be conditional upon receipt of acceptable documents confirming the applicant’s academic qualifications and eligibility for admission by the appropriate deadline.

Conditional English Language Proficiency

Conditional English Proficiency Admission may be offered to applicants:

1.
Whose academic qualifications satisfy the requirements of the program they seek, and;
2.
Who have not met the University’s English Language Proficiency (ELP) requirement.

An applicant who is offered Conditional English Proficiency Admission is admitted to an academic program conditional upon meeting the University’s ELP requirement. One way to satisfy the University’s ELP requirement is successful completion of the Advanced Level of the University’s English for Academic Purposes (EAP) program.

See Admissions in the Undergraduate Calendar and Course Catalogue for more information on Conditional English Language Proficiency Admission.
