Additional Admission Routes The First Nations’ Transition Program (FNTP) The First Nations’ Transition Program (FNTP) is a first-year credit program that provides First Nations, Métis and Inuit (FNMI) students who do not meet the general requirements of the University of Lethbridge an opportunity to enter into, and succeed at, university. Our program provides a solid foundation of core skills in a supportive cohort environment that attends to Aboriginal Ways of Knowing and Learning. It is also open to FNMI students returning to university after an absence and, as space allows, to those who qualify for general admission but want the supports provided by the cohort. Successful completion of the FNTP allows you to enter into most uLethbridge programs. This is a full-time university program that may qualify for loans and other sources of funding. This eight-month (two-semester), first-year experience program runs September to April. It provides a strong foundation of courses that can be credited to the majority of programs at uLethbridge. The deadline for the FNTP is August 31.

International students uLethbridge is home to more than 535 international students from nearly 90 countries. For the most part, admission requirements are Grade 12 or equivalent courses including English, at least three other academic courses (history, languages, mathematics, physical sciences) and a fifth course. However, please visit intreq to determine requirements specific to your country. Non-native English speakers need to pass an English-language proficiency test or take English for Academic Purposes (EAP) before they can enroll in classes. Learn more at Application deadline for international students is May 15 and a study visa is required. We are here to help you adapt to campus life socially, academically and culturally.

Non-matriculated Adult Admission Adult admission may be available to applicants who are 21 years of age or older and who do not meet our general admission standards. Life achievement may be considered if it has provided you with skills relevant to university success.

Students are admitted to uLethbridge while still attending college, and benefit from continuing student registration privileges, certainty regarding program requirements, transferability of courses and access to uLethbridge student services. 25
