University of Alberta After Degree Program Fall 2021

Posted

Hi everyone! I haven't found a forum for fall 2021 entry of the after degree program at UofA yet so I though I'd start one! I am a current UofA student and have applied at numerous other schools! 

Hello!

I just received conditional acceptance to UofA for the after degree program for Fall 2021! Just have to finish up Physiology. 

Anyone else hear back!? it'd be nice to connect with some people during the process!

congratulations!!

sadly I haven't heard anything! do you mind if I ask what was your GPA? and when did you hear?

Congrats on your conditional acceptance! When did you take your CASPer? 

Hello, 

Congrats on your acceptance. How soon does it take to hear from them. I just finished A&P.

Thank you everyone! I'm a little nervous because it's conditional on meeting the competitive GPA for this year. I'm really bummed they're not counting Winter 2020 in the admission GPA because I did really well that semester. Does anyone know if courses from Winter 2021 will count toward it?

I'm not 100% sure what my AGPA is but I think its around a 3.4 or 3.5.

I took CASPer on January 12th, launchpad updated saying they received the score on February 2nd, and I received the conditional offer on the 11th!

Hi, I do belive as long as you have received a conditional offer, there is hope. Could you please share your Casper experience? I plan taking mine next month not sure what to expect. I type really slow I hear typing speed is important,  could thus be true.

Hello everyone,

Please has anyone taking the Bio 325 course from Athabasca? I am not sure on how to get approval for the course. Your guidance would be highly appreciated. Thanks

I think that conditional means that you need to maintain a minimum GPA of (probably) a 3.0, as that's what you need at least to get into the after degree. I know for when I applied to UofA for my undergrad that I had a conditional offer as long as I maintain 70% average, and I did, so I got in.

I think my aGPA should be around 3.7-3.8! 

As well, do you mind me asking what your launchpad says? Mine used to say "your application is currently under review" but now thats gone, and it says that "if admitted, your final, official transcripts must be submitted". And then in my checklist it says that its awaiting the final transcripts? But wouldn't you only get awaiting them if I got in? Im so confused haha

hey! took my casper in November! I am a horrible typer haha. I'm so slow and I make so many spelling mistakes, but they don't take spelling mistakes into account. I started preparing for it about 3 weeks in advance, by finding all the tips I can, and doing so many practice examples. I started off not timing myself, and then I started to time once I got the rhythm of knowing what I wanted to say each time. I also did buy one package from somewhere so I could have a practice test from them, as well as do the casper practice test they give you.

Hello everyone,

Please if you plan to take Casper I would advise you book now. The last date is the 28th of February as there is no date for March. After the 28th of February the next available date is April 6th which is U of A's deadline for submission of Casper. Please act fast I just booked my test. Thanks 

Hey!

I finished my CASPER in January but my application still doesnt say it is completed (not too sure why)

Also, are they still giving out conditional offers? I didn't receive anything yet 😞

hey :) I wouldn't be worried, I know two people who have done the program, one person got accepted February and one didn't get accepted until late June! it can really be any time!

Quick question!

How is AGPA calculated? Is it just the last 2 semesters? Is Winter 2020 included in that?

I'm honestly not sure how they calculate GPA! I have heard that it is based on the last 24 credits. in my letter is says that it is conditional on meeting the competitive GPA with my most recent 24 credits once I get my final transcripts in. So maybe they only saw my fall 2020 and thought I could get an early acceptance? Winter 2020 will for sure NOT be counted, and I can't imagine my fall 2019 + fall 2020 gpas combined getting me in so early!
