When can I apply?

Students can apply to UPEI from Grade 11 or 12 with their transcripts. They can receive "early offers" that will allow them to prepare for visa applications in advance. If you do not have TOEFL or IELTS test results, or if your results are lower than 80/6.5 please check out our English Academic Preparation (EAP) program.  

English-language proficiency requirements

Transfer students

UPEI welcomes qualified transfer students. In addition to official transcripts from your previous universities or colleges, we also need your brief course outlines or descriptions in English to determine the number of credit hours that can be transferred.

Program-specific admission requirements

Academic performance requirements

UPEI recognizes a strong academic performance at the high school level as an indicator for university potential. The University is interested in applicants possessing a strong academic record and a high level of commitment for university study. International students should submit documents that prove that their qualifications are comparable to that of Canadian applicants. Students should have 12 years of elementary and secondary education with a high school diploma, or a Senior Secondary Certificate, Higher Secondary School Certificate, or other forms of matriculation.

Country-specific admission requirements


All tuition and fee information can be found on our Finance department website. Tuition and international fees are the same for EAP courses as for credit courses. Fees are subject to change.
