Admission Requirements

Undergraduate admission requirements vary based on your previous education and your intended program of study at Dalhousie. 

You’ll need to meet the general admission requirements as well as the program specific admission requirements before you can apply. If you don’t currently meet these requirements, you may be eligible for one of our upgrading or pathway programs.

We're looking for:

  • Academic math
  • Grade 12 English
  • 3 additional acceptable university-prep courses

Minimum final grades

  • Academic math: 65%
  • English: 65%
  • Other subjects: 60%
  • Overall average: 70%

Please note: Admission to many programs at Dalhousie is competitive; meeting the minimum average doesn’t guarantee admission. Typically, 70% or higher is necessary in all required subjects for early admission.
