Question about "Maintenance of an overall GPA of 3.40 or greater"

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I am going to be applying to the University of Calgary this cycle. I am located outside of the province. 

I recently came across the below information on the U of Calgary med school website:

Admission to the MD program upon completion of the undergraduate degree is conditional upon the following:

"Maintenance of an overall GPA of 3.40 or greater over the course of their undergraduate studies" 

In my first year of university I was enrolled in a few courses as a part-time student. My GPA was below 3.40. I enrolled in full-time studies after year 1 and consistently earned a GPA that is above 3.80

Given my lousy GPA in year 1 as a part-time student, will this make me ineligible to apply?

Thank-you :)

This is an average, not at each point along the studies. 



Thank-you for replying. I was under the impression that applicants applying from OUTSIDE of the province are required to have a 3.8 GPA (minimum). I wonder if the 3.4 requirement is an overall minimum average that is required for IP applicants only?
