The University of Lethbridge reserves the right to determine whether degrees from other academic programs completed elsewhere are equivalent to University of Lethbridge baccalaureate degrees. Applied and Technology degrees are not normally considered to be a basis of admission for graduate programs. A baccalaureate degree, or its academic equivalent, in disciplines other than Business or Management will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
