Deadline to accept offers of admission extended

Students who currently have an offer from UCalgary Law have until April 7 to accept.

The uncertainty of COVID-19 and how it is affecting our academic and wider communities is unprecedented. 

We know the last few weeks have been filled with uncertainty over and above the normal end of term stress. Many of you are adjusting to online classes and some of you are being asked to pack up dorm rooms and head home for the remainder of term all while continuing to study and complete papers and assignments. Others are dealing with juggling work with a lack of daycare, or facing a change in what going to work looks like.

In the hopes of lessening your stress just a little, we have decided to extend the acceptance deadline of your offer of admission to UCalgary Law from March 31 to April 7, with your deposit now due on April 14. We hope this extension gives you the breathing space you need to make the decision that is right for you.

Please remember that it can take up to 5 business days for your deposit to be processed.

If you want to accept your offer, but your newfound circumstances don’t allow you to pay your deposit in full at this time, please send an email to our Admissions Office at to arrange payment plans.
