General Admission Requirements for Year One Programs

Ontario secondary school students seeking admission must present the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) including a minimum of six Ontario Academic Courses (OAC). While an overall average of 70% on six Ontario Academic Courses is the minimum required for consideration, higher averages normally are required for admission to individual programs in which the demand for places by qualified applicants exceeds the number of places available. The actual averages required for admission to particular programs are determined each year on the basis of the number of applicants and the qualifications of those applicants. The admission average is calculated using the best six marks which include marks for courses required for admission. The length of time taken by an applicant to complete the secondary school program will not of itself be a determining factor in the admission decision providing the student has proceeded normally through the program without repeating any courses or credits. The University reserves the right to withdraw the Offer of Admission made to an applicant on the basis of interim marks or incomplete standing. The offer may be withdrawn if the applicant fails to complete diploma requirements with a minimum final admission average of 70% in six Ontario Academic Courses, or equivalent, or any specific final average or condition stated on the Offer of Admission.
