Admission Categories

Regular Student
This is the most common admission category. These are students who are admitted to a program leading to a masters or a doctoral degree, and who meet all admission requirements set out by the Faculty of Graduate Studies and their Graduate Program of interest. Please go to your program's website to find out about its admissions requirements.
Below are our other admission categories. If any one of these applies to you, please follow the application instructions listed on the page: 
A doctoral cotutelle is a single PhD degree jointly awarded by two universities. It is designed, supervised and examined by faculty from both universities. Applicants must meet the PhD requirements of both universities and have an agreed plan of study and support before applying.
You are a visiting student if you are registered in a graduate program at another university and want to take courses at the University of Calgary. You can visit the University of Calgary as a research-based student or a course-based student.

As a graduate student from another institution, you may wish to take a course offered at the University of Calgary to be used as credit towards your degree at your home university. 
The Interdisciplinary Degree allows a qualified graduate student to pursue thesis-based research (Master's, PhD) in an area that does not fit the traditional disciplinary requirements of only one graduate program.
