Students who have graduated with a Business degree are not eligible to apply to the BCom After Degree program. Students with a three year undergraduate Business degree are not eligible to apply into the BCom AD program. Completion of six required pre-professional courses is also required. These courses must be completed at a recognized university or college: ENGLISH (6) – Choose two of any junior level (100 level) English course (students may substitute 3 WRS 101 or 3 WRS 102 for one 3 junior English course), ECONOMICS 101 (3) – Introduction to Microeconomics, ECONOMICS 102 (3) – Introduction to Macroeconomics, MATHEMATICS 114 (3) – Elementary Calculus I, and STATISTICS 151 (3) – Introduction to Applied Statistics. Please note: The Alberta School of Business may not grant credit for any 1XX course as equivalent to the above U of A courses. Finally, applicants must have a competitive GPA. The GPA is calculated on the most recent Fall/Winter session (September to April) where a student has completed a minimum of 15. If a student has more than 15, all course work taken will be used to calculate the GPA. Calculations are based on university transferable courses and will include failed courses taken during the Fall/Winter session. Repeated courses, if previously passed, will not be included in the GPA calculation. The UofA uses a custom 4-point grading scale and GPAs will be converted to that scale. Applicants to the BCom AD program are ranked according to their GPA, which is calculated on all courses taken in the most recent Fall/Winter session, providing a minimum of 15 credits were completed from September to April. All qualified applicants are ranked and admitted in order by GPA until the quota is full.
