University Entrance Requirements in the US and Canada

choice_signpostIf you want to study in the US and Canada, this page will help you find out more about university entrance requirements, college entrance requirements and also the entry requirements for graduate (or postgraduate) study. If you currently serve in, or have previously served in the United States Armed Forces, you might like to check the GI Education Bill to see if you can obtain financial support.

Before applying for study in the US and Canada, it is useful to find out more about the college or university admission requirements for which you are applying.  Request information from several universities.  Carefully go through the admission requirements for university and make sure you have the information and the qualifications required.  Check out the preparation for college page for details on any tests required.

So as to maximize your chances of being accepted, you should apply for several universities and make sure your list has a range of entry requirements, i.e., higher to lower levels of school grades.  In this way if you don’t get into your first choice university, at least you might get into one of the others.

School, college or university entrance requirements in the US

High school students apply to either four-year liberal arts colleges or universities. Others attend community colleges, which admit all students with high school diplomas, in preparation for transfer to a four year university. Special arrangements exist for non-traditional students (usually students over the age of 22) who pursue studies in higher education at university or college. The US system is decentralized: requirements for university entrance vary, even when using a common application form, so it is always best to check with the school, college or university for their entrance requirements.

Having considered the entry requirements in general terms, you are probably now ready to apply. Remember to apply to more than one.  Or you might like to:
