A graduating average of at least 70 per cent from a four-year baccalaureate degree (or equivalent) is required for admission to all programs except for English, History, Mathematics and Statistics and the Master of Public Administration where the required average is 75 per cent.
Applicants with a marginally lower four year average may be accepted if their performance in the last two complete years is significantly higher (75 per cent or more).
Applicants must have the academic background required to undertake graduate studies in their chosen field. Applicants who fail to meet this requirement but who otherwise meet the criteria may be admitted; however, background deficiencies must be addressed by taking appropriate courses either prior to or in parallel with graduate work.
If English is not your first language, you must submit proof of English proficiency in the form of a recognized test, unless you attended a university recognized by the University of Regina and where the language of instruction was English.
