Minimum average of 65%:
With no mark below 60% in:
- Math 30-1*
- Math 31*
And no mark below 50% in:
- Chemistry 30
- ELA 30-1
- Physics 30
Note: Students with a grade of 60-79% in Math 30-1 and/or Math 31 must complete the mandatory Math preparation course offered, normally during the last week of August, by RDC prior to commencement of the program.
Note: Applicants whose first language is not English must demonstrate English language proficiency in addition to the program admission requirements.
Note: Bachelor of Science Engineering applicants will be offered admission on a competitive basis based on GPA ranking.
The Grade Point Average (GPA) calculation for Conditional Admission will be calculated according to one of the following:
- 25 high school credits from the following subjects: Chemistry 30, ELA 30-1, Mathematics 30-1, Mathematics 31 and Physics 30. If any of these courses are in progress at the transcript submission deadline, the 20-level in the subject will be used.
- 18 post-secondary credits including all credits from the most-recently completed term plus the best grades from the next most recent term.
- Applicants with fewer than 18 post-secondary credits will have their GPA calculated using all post-secondary credits plus the credits from the most recent semester from high school using the best grade(s) from the following five subjects: Chemistry 30, ELA 30-1, Mathematics 30-1, Mathematics 31 and Physics 30 to reach 18 credits.
Note: Post-secondary credits will be used in the Conditional Admission GPA calculation before High School credits, regardless of when the post-secondary credits were taken. Post-secondary credits do NOT include any High School equivalents completed at a post-secondary institution (i.e. High School equivalents completed at RDC).
Note: Transcript deadline for the initial GPA calculation is March 1.
Note: Due to the high level of demand, the University of Alberta (UoA) gives priority to applicants who have no previous post secondary university transfer credit prior to completing first year engineering courses. If, for example, you have completed all or a portion of one year in another university transfer program (typically science) you will be assessed a GPA penalty for not having a full load of engineering courses making program transfer to the UoA difficult. Please contact Advising for further information or contact the UoA directly.
