If you have attempted 9 or more credits of post-secondary coursework before you apply to MacEwan University, you may be required to present a minimum admission grade point average (AGPA) in addition to your high school requirements.


Your AGPA takes the average of recent coursework completed according to the calculations below. Your AGPA is different from your overall GPA, which uses the average of all coursework completed.

The post-secondary coursework that may be used to calculate your AGPA is defined in program-specific admission criteria. Check your program's admission requirements for details. Some programs may accept coursework from any post-secondary institution and others may only accept university-level credit.

Calculating AGPA

Admission Grade Point Average (AGPA) is calculated on all post-secondary coursework attempted in the most recent two terms of study if they contain 24 credits of coursework. If these two terms contain fewer than 24 credits of coursework, we look at the next most recent term(s) until 24 credits of post-secondary coursework is reached.

Your grades for all courses within all terms required to reach the 24 credits are used to calculate the AGPA. This means your AGPA may be calculated on more than 24 credits.

If you have attempted 9 or more credits but fewer than 24 credits of post-secondary coursework, the AGPA is based on all post-secondary credits attempted.

An AGPA is not calculated for applicants who have attempted fewer than 9 credits of post-secondary coursework. Applications are evaluated on the basis of high school grades.
