Bachelor of Arts Qualifying Year


The BA Qualifying Year provides students who are unsuccessful in their application to the BA program to begin their degree studies at the same time they complete the necessary academic upgrading to meet the minimum admission requirements. They will receive priority registration with other Bachelor of Arts students for the first year and, upon successful completion of upgrading courses, will be admitted to the Bachelor of Arts program.

Program Admission Requirements

In addition to KPU’s General university admission requirements including the undergraduate-level English Proficiency Requirement, the following program admission requirements apply.

Program Requirements

Students will choose a variety of options to make the necessary academic upgrades within their first two semesters of study in order to meet the minimum admission requirements to the Bachelor of Arts degree program. These can include but are not limited to ENGQ 1099 and MATQ 1099. Students are encouraged to meet with an educational advisor or testing advisor to discuss their options.

All students in the BA Qualifying Year are required to take EDUC 1100.

Students are permitted to take university-level courses concurrently with the BA Qualifying Year requirements provided they meet the appropriate prerequisites.

Credential Awarded

Upon successful completion of the necessary academic upgrading, students in the BA Qualifying Year will be granted admission to the Bachelor of Arts degree program.
