2:  Guiding Principle
The University of Lethbridge recognizes that these are unprecedented times. As a result our guiding principle will be that the impact of COVID-19 should not disadvantage any applicant to programs offered by the University of Lethbridge.  All of our programs will have the flexibility in their admissions processes to ensure that this principle is being upheld, for instance through changes in process such as flexible evaluation of transcripts relating to grades from Spring 2020 courses.
