COVID-19 admission information for fall 2021

Your safety and access to high-quality education by our outstanding faculty and instructors remains our top priority. We understand that students and their supporters want to know how Dalhousie will deliver academic programming in fall 2021. Based on Canada’s current vaccine timeline, we are optimistic Dalhousie will be able to offer an expansion of on-campus learning this fall, followed by a winter term that looks more like our normal academic experience. 

Important information regarding exam cancellations and continued school closures

In the event of high school exam cancellations for the remainder of the 2021 school year, Dalhousie will accept the alternate course grades provided by schools or issuing organizations.  

For students starting in September 2021, we are requiring official copies of transcripts, test scores and other supporting documentation. Official documents are those that come directly from your school, testing agency or issuing institution. 

We recognize the COVID-19 pandemic continues to cause disruptions that affect students’ ability to receive transcripts and grades. If you have any questions or concerns about your ability to obtain an official transcript, please contact a member of the admissions team for the most up-to-date information.
