The details and minimum scores accepted by Mount Allison are outlined clearly on our website at:
If you do not meet the English requirements but you do meet the academic requirements, you will be offered Conditional Admission which will allow you to study English at one of our partner ESL schools until your English is strong enough for successful academic study at Mount Allison.
Once you complete your ESL program and provide proof of this, we will send you a standard offer of admission allowing you to enroll at Mount Allison.
3. Admission Requirements:
All prospective students must meet the minimum academic admissions requirements. They must achieve a minimum average of 70% (or equivalent) in their top five university preparatory high school courses. Of these five courses English is a requirement, and if students are applying for the Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Commerce programs, they will also require a university preparatory Math course as one of those 5 courses.
If you are a transfer student who has already started or attained a degree, we will require a minimum CGPA of 2.0 for admission consideration.
As a GCE or an IGCSE student, we will require a minimum of 2 A-level courses, or 4 AS-level courses with a minimum B average and no grade below a D in both A-level and O-level subjects.
IB diploma candidates require a minimum of 28 predicted IB points, excluding the TOK score, for general admission.
Original official transcript(s) sent directly from the institution(s) attended, or official notarized copy(ies), of all transcripts, must be received before a student can be assessed for admission. Transcripts sent directly from the student are not considered official.

Please be aware that scholarships are available ONLY to students starting in September. January students will not be eligible to receive scholarships. In order to be eligible for scholarships you must apply and send all required documentation to MountAllison by March 1st of the year you are applying.
Any student with an average of 80% or above on their top five university preparatory high school courses, that we will accept for admission, or a 3.0 GPA if applying as a transfer student, and who meet the English requirements, are automatically awarded an entrance scholarship ranging between $500-$5000.
We also take extra-curricular involvement into account when assessing applicants for admission and scholarships, so if the students have been involved with sports, volunteerism, have work experience or actively participate in their communities please let us know!
