How Mount Royal's alternative entrance options can help get you where you want to go.

You Didn't Get Into Your Dream Program... Now What?

Applying for university can feel like hopping on a roller coaster ride without having any idea where it will take you. There's the excitement of starting your future and all the learning that lays ahead, but there's also the uneasy feeling of possibly not getting accepted into your dream program.

If you don't get your acceptance letter this time around, it's important to remember that there are still options available to help you begin your university experience. Mount Royal's alternative entrance options are specially designed educational streams to help you get where you want to go.

University Entrance Option

If you don't currently meet the admission requirements or the competitive average for your program of choice, MRU's University Entrance Option can help you complete missing coursework, boost your existing grades and begin settling into university life.

UEO includes taking credit courses, meaning you can keep moving your education forward while becoming a stronger applicant for a Mount Royal degree or diploma. Plus, dedicated faculty, supportive academic advisors and a cohort of your peers will provide a built-in community to help keep you on track.

Open Studies

One of the most exciting parts of going to university is the endless options it provides, but that can also make it difficult to know which program is the best fit for you.

If you're on the fence or are unsure where to begin, Open Studies can help you sample courses and get a feel for where your passions truly lie. You can also fill in missing high school course requirements or upgrade your existing marks for a more competitive application. Best of all, while you're checking things out, you'll be earning credits toward your future Mount Royal degree or diploma.

Language Education for Academic Purposes

If you need to improve your English language proficiency to meet application requirements, MRU's Language Education for Academic Purposes (LEAP) program offers four levels of high-quality English language instruction.

LEAP will help you develop the language skills to succeed in academic settings. Certified and experienced instructors support a smooth transition from language classes to credit studies in undergraduate programs.
