Brock University is monitoring developments in Canada and globally with respect to school closures and test and exam postponements/cancellations. We have created this page to provide answers to questions you may have. The situation is changing often so we will continue to evaluate and adjust how we assess applications for admission while maintaining the integrity of the process.
We realize that applicants may face challenges in obtaining documents to support their Brock application. We encourage students to continue working with their schools, national agencies and test providers to submit the required documents. We will provide as much flexibility and accommodation as possible regarding document submissions and deadlines, as required by individual circumstances.
Please contact us at email@example.com if you have any questions or concerns about your application.
At this time, the application process and application cycle is on schedule for 2021/22. Brock University, as well as the Ontario Universities Application Centre (OUAC) and all Ontario universities are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation. Any significant changes or updates specific to Brock will be updated here, and for all Ontario high school applicants, visit the OUAC website at ouac.on.ca/news for ongoing updates.
We are aware that some students are experiencing difficulty in submitting documents and test scores due to restrictions related to COVID-19. Students should continue to work with their schools and local test centres in regard to securing the documents needed for their admission. Brock will continue to work with students individually and make accommodations based on their circumstances. If students have questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Canadian Federal government will determine your ability to travel to Canada and all rules regarding attaining a study permit.

If you would like to defer your start date to a later intake, please email email@example.com to make your request for review and a decision. Please email from the email address you provided on your application and include your student ID and full name as it appears on your offer letter in the Subject Line.
Brock is closely monitoring the global impact of COVID-19 on education systems and formal examination boards and we want to reassure our students around the world that we will continue to offer as much flexibility as possible in recognizing the results and credentials available to us. If your examination board, including but not limited to CBSE, IB, A-Levels have cancelled exams for 2021, we will accept any adapted grading practices formally implemented by those boards to recognize your studies. Brock will also honour any grades submitted by your school board or province which they officially deem as final. We understand this is a deeply challenging time and will work with students to identify pathways to Brock using these alternate grading methods. Please continue to check with your school and examination body’s website regularly for updates. Here are some helpful links:
Yes. Admissions offers on-the-spot admission for domestic college and university transfer students, through virtual means. Note that we are not able to make an admission decision and a transfer credit assessment unless the applicant is able to supply required transcripts and is ready to make an on-the-spot application. Please register for an appointment and receive instructions on next steps!
We understand that due to interruptions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, many institutions will be offering non-numerical grades to students for current courses such as “pass/fail” or “credit/no credit.”
The academic portion of your admission criteria is based upon meeting a minimum 70% average among your top 10.0 (or equivalent) undergraduate credits. As your entire degree is not being used in this calculation, our admissions team will only use numerical grade values toward this overall average. Any non-numerical grades such as “pass” or credit” will not be included in the calculation. Applicants must have at least 10.0 full credits (or equivalent, approx. ½ of a 4-year degree) on their transcript that contain a numerical grade in order to be eligible for calculation of their admission average.
If you are interested in the Junior/Intermediate and Intermediate/Senior divisions, you are required to satisfy our teachable subject criteria. While courses with a with a numerical grade will be selected first, for the purpose of calculation, Pass/Fail marks will also be accepted to satisfy teachable subjects requirements.
