Requirements for Canadian Students
Students registering at Mount Allison are expected to have graduated from high school at the university preparatory level. A minimum average of 65% on university preparatory courses taken during the previous two years of secondary education is recommended for admission consideration. Possession of the minimum requirements guarantees only that the application will be considered; normally, students who are admitted have averages that are above the minimum. Applicants are encouraged to contact Mount Allisonís admissions office with questions and concerns.
Requirements for International Students
The requirements for international students are very broad due to differences in education systems. Each student is assessed on an individual basis, taking into consideration academics, extracurricular involvement, maturity, and other relevant background information. If the student's mother tongue is not English, documentation of proficiency must be provided:
- Successful completion of at least three years of instruction in Canada at a secondary institution as recognized by Mount Allison University.
- Successful completion of at least 30 credit hours (or equivalent) at a post-secondary institution as recognized by Mount Allison University where English is the primary language of instruction.
- TOEFL score of 550 (paper test), 213 (computer test), or 79 (Internet test) (DI Code 0939).
- International English Language Testing System (IELTS) score of 6.5.
- Canadian Academic English Language Assessment CAEL with an overall score of 70 and no sub-test result below 60.
- Certificate of Proficiency in English (CPE) by University of Cambridge English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL). The minimum requirement is a grade of 'C'.
