Admission Requirements

Additional Admission Requirements:

    Although all courses are taught on the campus of Red Deer College, application for this program must be made to the University of Alberta. Students may choose to use the University of Alberta’s on-line application process or they can mail in completed application forms to the University of Alberta. Although the application deadline is March 1, students are strongly advised to apply earlier. Because there are more applicants to the program than there are places, enrollment management is in effect. Under enrollment management, an overall target of 40 new admissions is set for the program. A minimum AGPA for application is set each year; all admissions are competitive, and the actual admission AGPA may be higher.
