2006-2007 Undergraduate Calendar

Admissions Criteria - Fall 2007 Entry  
General Requirements  
Ontario Secondary School students must have a minimum of six Grade 12U or 12M courses and have completed the Ontario (OSSD), or equivalent, to be considered for admission. Prerequisite courses are used in the calculation of admission averages for all programs. International students on Study Permits are welcome to apply to and be considered for admission to co-op programs at Brock University. However, admission to some programs may be limited or restricted due to limitations imposed by industry requirements, or Canadian Immigration, which make it difficult to secure placements for Visa international students and present challenges for successful completion of required work terms. Visa students are ineligible to apply for Accounting Co-op and Public Administration Co-op. The above general admission requirements apply to all undergraduate programs. Faculty or program-specific prerequisites follow below. Please note that these are minimum requirements only and are subject to change. Admission is not guaranteed.
