Additional criteria

Mount Royal University’s Bachelor of Midwifery program has limited enrolment and admission to the program is highly competitive. As a result, all applicants are required to complete components of the Altus Suite as part of their application. Applicants should refer to TakeAltus.com to create an account and register to complete the following assessments: Casper and Snapshot. The results of these assessments will be used to differentiate between applicants when there are more highly academically qualified applicants than seats available in the program.

The dates available to complete Casper for the current admission cycle are listed here. These are the only testing dates available and you must select Mount Royal University for distribution before the posted Distribution Deadline. Visit the Casper website for further information on this process. 

Applicants must also complete Snapshot. Snapshot can be completed as soon as an account has been created with Altus Assessments. The last day to complete Snapshot is the Mount Royal Distribution Deadline which can be found on the Dates & Fees page.

No exceptions will be provided for applicants who are unable to take Casper and Snapshot before the listed deadlines.
