Questions about program registration

Submitted by nnreimer on Tue, 08/23/2016 - 5:52pm

I'm already a UCalgary student. How do I become a philosophy major?

If you are already enrolled in the Faculty of Arts all that is required is that you submit a request for a change of program through your online Student Centre. If you are not enrolled in the Faculty of Arts but are enrolled in the University, you may request admission to the Faculty through your online Student Centre.  You can get assistance from one of the student advisors in the Student Success Centre located in McEwan Student Centre.

I am interested in taking a degree in Philosophy. What are the admission requirements?

The admission requirements for the University of Calgary can be found by going to the Apply website and clicking the tabs for studied in Canada or studied outside of Canada.

I want to apply for admission as an adult student. What must I do to be admitted?

Students who have matriculated more than ten years ago should contact the office of the faculty in which they are seeking admission. In the case of the Faculty of Arts, you should contact the Student Success Centre. To be admitted as a nonmatriculated adult student you will need to present a grade of 72% or better in English 30. English 30 can be taken at any of the institutions in town that offer it, such as Chinook Learning Services or Mount Royal University. More advice can be found at the Future Students Office.

All regular mail enquiries relating to undergraduate admission to the University should be directed to

I'm a student at another university. How do I take a UCalgary Philosophy course over the spring or summer?

To enrol in one of our spring or summer session courses you will need to be admitted in some capacity to the University of Calgary. If you want these courses to count for credit at your current university you will need to be admitted as a Visiting Student, otherwise you may wish to be admitted as an Open Studies Student. In either case, advice can be had from the Future Students Office. The Registrar's Office has application forms for both Visiting and Open Studies students, as well as other admissions information.

Alternatively you may get in touch with the Admissions office via regular post at:

Calgary, Alberta, T2N 1N4

Since these courses often fill up it would be wise to start the application process as soon as possible.
