The following four courses are required:

The following course is strongly recommended:

  • UGST 1001 - Effective Learning in the Undergraduate Context

The remaining five courses are of the student's choosing. Please consult the appropriate section of the calendar for course requirements of various Mount Royal degree programs, and/or Academic Advising Services

Students can complete a maximum of 30 credits (normally ten courses) as a University Entrance student. (This 30 credit limit includes any courses which the student may take as an Open Studies student.)

Students are strongly encouraged to consult with an academic advisor before they reach this credit limit to ensure they are taking the appropriate courses. Students who reach this limit and who have not been admitted into a Mount Royal program will not be permitted to register in additional courses and may not apply to Open Studies. There is no appeal process to extend this limit.

University Entrance students who wish to upgrade their high school courses may enroll in various credit-free high school equivalency courses offered at Mount Royal. While these courses are not eligible for Alberta Education graduation credits or high school transcript purposes, they are accepted as alternative entrance requirements for undergraduate programs offered by Mount Royal and other Alberta universities.
