Application for Admission

The application for UCVM's Class of 2024 is now closed.

We apologize for the change in our messaging and recognize this may be concerning, however we wanted to ensure the amended policy is clearly understood.
 
For students who elect to keep their grades for the winter 2020 semester we will be using them in our GPA calculations providing that all courses taken in that semester have a letter or number grade. If some courses show a ‘CR’ grade we will not use the grades in the GPA semester calculation, but we will give credit towards the four (4 )full-time semesters providing all of the other criteria are met. If any of the ten (10) required prerequisite courses have a letter or number grade we will use the grade received in the calculation of the required ten (10) course GPA. If students choose to take a ‘CR’ for any of our ten (10) required courses, credit will be given to the student that the required course was completed.

We received over 280 applications for the seats we will be offering next year. We will now start the process of working through these applications over the next few months and waiting for Fall 2019 semester grades to become available at the end of January. The first step is to qualify applicants for further consideration - verifying that all required documents were submitted before the deadline, confirming that 10-course GPAs meet our minimum 3.0 requirement, and calculating 4-term GPAs to determine who will be offered interviews. If further information is required at any step, we will contact applicants directly. We will determine those applicants who will be invited for an interview and will send letters to all applicants to let them know of their status. Interviews will be conducted on Saturday, March 21, 2020 in Calgary.

The next application cycle will open in the fall of 2020, and more information will be provided leading up to the next cycle on our website, starting in the summer of 2020.

For your reference, we will keep an active link to the Application Manual for the Class of 2024 admission cycle posted below.  Please be aware that UCVM's admissions policies are reviewed annually and requirements from previous years may not apply (i.e. the 2024 Application Manual may not reflect the process that will be used to select the Class of 2025 next year). We continually review our policies and procedures and, based on evidence we gather, may make changes to our admissions process before the next application cycle.
