There are several systems of secondary education that exceed the level of meeting the basic admission
requirements. The U of A acknowledges the efforts of students who have completed one of the
programs indicated below. Transfer credit, advanced placement, and the opportunity for credit by special
assessment are available for students who have demonstrated excellence in specific subject areas.
Note: Students given advanced placement

Students entering the Faculty of Arts who are
given Advanced Placement will be admitted
