Admission into the University of Calgary’s Computer Science Graduate programs is highly competitive, and only the most promising applicants are admitted.
To be admitted to our graduate programs you must meet our minimum academic entrance requirements.
To increase your chances of acceptance, you should:
- Become familiar with the research focus of our professors.
- Contact some faculty members whose research meshes with your interests:
Discuss if they would make a suitable supervisor for your graduate program.
- List the potential supervisors that you have identified on your on-line application form. We only consider students for which at least one of our professors has indicated that he/she will supervise the student.
We cannot answer individual enquiries about details of or exceptions to our admission procedure, because we receive thousands each year. However, we do collect and respond to these kinds of questions via our Frequently Asked Questions page. If you don't find an answer to your question here, please contact a graduate advisor.
International Applicants: Be sure that you read and meet the entry requirements as detailed on the Minimum Admission Requirements and International Students pages (Link to the appropriate pages).
The Application Procedure
- All applicants must submit an official application and pay the application fee within one month of submitting the application.
- When the application is complete and submitted, it is reviewed by faculty members in the applicant's research area.
- The application file then goes to the Graduate Committee for a final decision, which is assessed by considering:
- The match between an applicant's research interests and the department's available resources including supervision
- Competitiveness of academic record including Grade point average
- References, experience, projects, papers, and other relevant information
- If accepted, the applicant receives an admission offer detailing any conditions and financial support (when appropriate). Otherwise, the applicant is notified of rejection.
