Requirements for Canadian Students
From High School: For general admission, English and four additional university preparatory courses are required. Minimum final grades of 65% in English and an overall average of 70%.
Please consult the Web site for program specific prerequisites. Possession of the minimum requirements does not guarantee entrance to many programs.
Requirements for International Students
Equivalent to Canadian student requirements. Students generally meet the admission requirements at universities in their home country. Students whose first language is not English are required to submit proof of proficiency in English. (Minimum 580 TOEFL, 7 IELTS, and 70 CAEL for full-time admission.)
Scores less than 580 (237 computer based) can do language upgrading while enrolling part-time. Transfer students from other universities will have their credits assessed for Dalhousie transfer.
