Students who are enrolled in their last year of studies in a PEI secondary school may be admitted to the University of Prince Edward Island to pursue Concurrent Studies. The following conditions will apply at the University:
- the applicant must have a superior academic record;
- the applicant must be enrolled in a PEI secondary school in a program that meets regular UPEI entry requirements;
- the applicant must have the written recommendation of the secondary school principal;
- the applicant must have the written consent of the parent or legal guardian if under the legal age of majority on the opening day of classes; and
- the applicant must have the support of the Dean of the Faculty for the courses in which the applicant plans to enrol.
Admission will be initially for one three-semester-hour course but may be renewed with the continued support of the school principal and the Dean. Normally, no more than six semester-hours of credit may be obtained by Concurrent Studies, but students who continue to have superior academic records and the support of the school principal may seek permission from the Dean to enrol in a further course for a maximum of nine semester-hours of credit.
Students in Concurrent Studies will be treated as regular students in most respects, except that they may not register in a full range of courses. Standard transcripts will be issued and fees and deadlines will be as for regular students. Students who have enrolled in Concurrent Studies at other recognized post-secondary institutions prior to secondary school graduation may also be eligible for transfer credit.
