  • A minimum admission average of 70% (many programs require a higher average);
  • You must meet English language proficiency requirements.

Prerequisite subject requirements/average guidelines

English language proficiency requirements

Studying the Ontario curriculum does not automatically exempt you from submitting proof of English proficiency. If English is not your first language you will be asked to provide evidence of proficiency before an admission decision can be made. If required to submit a test, we will notify you by email and your applicant portal at will show the document is required for assessment.

Offer timelines

Our earliest round of offers will go out to high achieving students in December; these offers are based on a combination of Grade 11 and Grade 12 results. To be eligible for an early offer, you must have 1.0 final Grade 12 result at the 4U or 4M level, and five Grade 11 U or M-level credits.

The first major round of admission offers will be mailed out in February. Admission averages are calculated using a minimum 3.0 first-semester Grade 12 4U or 4M finals, with registration in 3.0 additional 4U or 4M credits, including prerequisites. If you are in a non-semestered school, we will use 6.0 mid-term grades at the Grade 12 4U or 4M level, including prerequisites. The final round will be mailed out in May.

If you do not receive an offer in February, or if you are still in studies and received an alternate program offer,  you will automatically be reconsidered for your preferred program in May.  Decisions will include consideration of April mid-term results.
