In order to serve students best, admission processes for many Allied Health programs in British Columbia and across Canada include a selection process whereby applicants are selected, or compete for program entry. The program ranks students according to academic preparedness and non-academic qualities including situational judgement, proven to be reliable predictors of personal commitment and future professional behaviours. Applicants with the highest overall rankings are offered seats in the program. This process enhances students' likelihood of program success and future employability.All academic application requirements must be completed within the previous five years.Once all applicants have completed the non-academic assessment, the program calculates an aggregate score for each applicant by equally weighting the academic (combined GPA of admission requirements) and non-academic assessment scores (indicators of program and future professional success) to determine which applicants will receive program seat invitations. Once all aggregated scores are totaled, the students selected will be offered seats in the program for a given year, pending completion of the Program Participation Requirements prior to the program start date.The program maintains a short waitlist for late entry into the same year due to student withdrawals or deferrals. Waitlists are not retained for future years. Those applicants meeting the admission requirements, but not gaining a seat in the year of application need to reapply in order to be eligible in a subsequent year. When you apply you will need to submit proof that you meet the program admission requirements listed above. Where a letter grade is specified, you must have proof of that grade or higher.
