Admission Requirements Continued DIRECT FROM HIGH SCHOOL Are you in Grade 12? If you’re thinking of coming to UNB Saint John in 2014, the admission requirements listed on these pages are the courses you will need. The admission average is the average of the courses required for admission. For those students who have required courses that are being taken in the second semester of high school, and for which grades are not yet available, the pre-requisite course (usually grade 11) will be applied to make a grade estimate for the specific admission course. Are you in Grade 10 or 11? If you’re thinking of coming to UNB Saint John later than 2014, these pages will serve as a guideline as you choose your courses in high school in preparation for entrance to UNB Saint John. EXTRA CREDIT FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS Advanced Placement (AP) Students following the Advanced Placement program may have their courses evaluated for up to 30 credit hours (approximately 10 courses) of transfer credits. UNB Saint John will consider grades of 3, 4 and 5 on acceptable courses. International Baccalaureate (IB) Students following the International Baccalaureate program at the Higher Level may have their courses evaluated for up to 30 credit hours (approximately 10 courses) of transfer credits. UNB Saint John will consider grades of 5, 6 and 7 on acceptable courses. Application Deadlines The general application date for admission into our university for a September start is March 31. TRANSFER STUDENTS If you have enrolled in any post-secondary institution other than UNB, we will also require official copies of transcripts from those institutions. The minimum admission requirements are still applicable for basic admission. If you have received credit from any post-secondary institutions, you may be granted credit dependent on the degree to which you are applying, at the discretion of the Office of the Registrar and the Faculty.

To request transfer credits, you must supply course outlines for all courses – typically these course outlines may be obtained through the Office of the Registrar or the Faculty at the previous institution. Students applying through an approved block credit transfer program (BAM, BAMAC, BAMEC, BAMHT) are waived from this step, but must supply official transcripts. Transfer Student Deadlines Transfer students are encouraged to apply through the Office of the Registrar for transfer credit assessment by the following dates to ensure transfer credit results can be completed in a timely manner. Application for September start: July 15 Application for January start: November 15 Application for May start: March 15 VISITING STUDENTS Would you like to attend UNB Saint John for a year and then return to your home institution? You may be admissible to take courses at UNB Saint John with a letter of permission from the Registrar at your home institution. Also check with your advisor at your home institution to ensure the courses at UNB Saint John are transferable to your degree program at your home institution. MATURE STUDENTS If you have attended any post-secondary institution, we’ll consider you as a transfer student. If not, we’ll look for the basic admission requirements as listed per degree. You may also be considered for admission if you have not been enrolled in an educational program for five years and/or have reached the age of 21. Contact the Office of the Registrar for more information. HOME SCHOOLED STUDENTS You must meet the basic admission requirements as outlined. Reference letters and a SAT score are recommended. Consult the Office of the Registrar for an assessment of your course curriculum.
