Is there anyone here applying from outside Alberta?

I need to upload/send my grades for prerequisites but I am not given that option on my portal. I was only given the option to upload my undergraduate transcript. I took my prereqs at different universities and they can only send documents virtually right now. I was told to call admissions but it kept going to voicemail. Very frustrating.

Hey! I am not too sure how international transcripts work but there are some FAQ’s here: https://www.ucalgary.ca/future-students/undergraduate/documents

as well I called admissions last week and someone picked up right away.

Hey,

According to UofC grading scale an 82-83% is an A- which is a 3.7. Hope this helps! Also you can still apply even if your pre-reqs are not complete yet. I'm not sure when the last day you can complete your course is tho...

Thanks so much for letting me know. My GPA is definitely going to take a hit after I finish this A&P course though LOL

Do you guys think the CGPA will be higher this year because of online classes?

Hi all,

I all of sudden got curious about Transcript and GPA for admission. So once I submit my transcripts of post secondary & 5 pre requisite courses, will admission take the grade (A,B,C...) as determinant of GPA or they will look at the percentage of how much I achieved then convert into UofC’s own GPA scale range? Each school has slightly different score conversion..

other question is if applicants graduated from two post secondary schools (my case, it’s degree first then got another diploma), they advised me admission will only look at the latest education GPA which is my diploma. Am I still supposed to submit both institution’s transcripts? Or the only they will look into?

any advice?

Thank you in advance!

I was reading the post for last year and they had waitlisted people with 3.7 or below...crazy!! But they admitted up to 3.5 I think. I hope it has lowered this year but not too sure about how online courses would affect this. hopefully the cutoff is not too high this year.

Hi everyone,

Just a quick check before I move forward, does anyone have taken PSYC 289 from Athabasca university to fulfill one of pre-requisite courses (Arts)? Or anyone knows it's acceptable? I notice people take PSYC 228 but I thought I would prefer to take 289.. Any feedback would be a great help!!

Thank you all, and good luck on your journey.

Not yet, unfortunately. I only applied last week.

Does anyone know how long it takes for Athabasca University to send transcripts over?

I guess since September 15 is the deadline maybe they are waiting until then? Also no clue for athabasca, I'm also waiting for them to send my transcript.

Once I received my final grades from AU, I called U of C's admissions office to let them know (and also to ask if they required anything else from me). The person I talked to said he would go ahead and request my transcript from AU. I'm pretty sure they received it within the next couple days.

I'm thinking U of C might be waiting until after August 31st to request the remaining transcripts, when they know all of the applicants will have completed their courses. Hard to know for sure though!

I finished a few days ago so I guess it will probably will take a bit extra time. but yes I'll go ahead and call too afterwards.

Is anyone here outside from alberta applying?

I am so frustrated. I took a couple of my prerequisites from different unis and I emailed Calgary about this. I was told to have the respective institutions send my transcripts/final grade to transcripts@ucalgary.com.

However, Ucalgary is saying they have not received my transcript from a certain institution that I took my stats course at. I also already paid to have this sent.

How did you guys have your prereq grades sent?

Also, was there a part of the application that asked if you are currently enrolled in prereq courses?

Admissions and nursing are on different pages that it is frustrating and annoying.

Why don’t you follow up with your institution with the stats course to send the transcript over or to have it emailed directly to admissions to expedite the process?

No I don’t remember any question like that on the application. As far as I know, all grades and prerequisites have to be done by August 31st.
