Mount Royal has a general admission policy that applies to most undergraduate (credit) programs. Each program also has specific admission requirements. Please ensure you are familiar with both the general and specific admission requirements for the program(s) you select. In addition, all applicants must demonstrate English Language Proficiency for the purpose of admission if their first language (learned and understood) is not English.
Admission to Mount Royal is competitive, meaning students with higher grades will be considered first. Grade requirements vary from program to program. To help you determine if your grades are competitive, we have provided the Admission Requirements chart (PDF) that lists the Competitive Average Range for each program. This range is based on the competitive admission average for the previous year and should serve as a guideline only. Some programs may also require additional criteria such as an interview or a portfolio.

Apply early! Early admission is open from October 1 to February 1. We encourage application during this period as some programs have a deadline of February 1 or fill up early. The application deadline for International applicants is April 1.
Applicants must submit all supporting documents including final, official high school and post-secondary transcripts and proof of English Language Proficiency if your first language (learned and understood) is not English by May 1 to be considered for admission for the Fall Semester. If you are currently in high school or post-secondary studies and your final, official transcript will not be available by May 1, provide transcripts with interim grades so that you can be considered for conditional admission. This is to allow time to process your application and obtain a VISA/study permit. If you are granted a (conditional) offer of admission, your deadline for final documents may be extended.
United States: Citizens of the United States may apply and be considered under the standard dates and deadlines rather than the International deadlines.
