Undergraduate Academic Calendar information header

Possession of the minimum entrance requirements listed below does not guarantee admission to the University. In addition, admission to a specific program does not guarantee admission to all programs offered. Additional program requirements are given after basic entrance requirements are described.

The University may consider, on an individual basis, any applicants who do not possess the formal requirements but who may be otherwise qualified for admission.

Degree programs are described in terms of the number of units required. A traditional full-time study pattern is to complete 5.0 units per academic year, thus a 15.0 unit program could be described as “three year”; a 20.0 unit program as “four year” and so forth.

When grade XI and XII are used below, they refer to Nova Scotia high school grade-level courses or to their equivalencies as determined by the Admissions Office.

Students admitted from high school or CEGEP may transfer a maximum of 5.0 units from the Advanced Placement Program (AP), the International Baccalaureate program (IB), or from CEGEP.


Academic Note: This web-based calendar information is applicable for the 2021-2022 academic year which runs from September 01, 2021 to August 31, 2022.
