We require a minimum Grade 12 diploma with high grades in academic subjects (usually a minimum B average, although higher grades are required for some limited enrolment programs).
If your grading scale differs from the Ontario secondary school scale on which a pass is 50%, your grades will be translated into equivalencies for admissibility and scholarship eligibility.
The grading scale is as follows:
- A+ = 92%
- A = 87%
- A- = 82%
- B+ = 78%
- B = 75%
- B- = 72%
- C+ = 68%
- C = 65%
- C- = 62%
- D+ = 58%
- D = 55%
- D- = 52%
- F = less than 50
You are encouraged to select courses with significant academic rigour in your final year of secondary school. The following prerequisite subjects should be completed during the grade 12 year for those intending on entering the sciences: chemistry and advanced mathematics.
The following are helpful in determining eligibility:
- SAT scores for borderline cases;
- School profiles (if available);
- Letters of recommendation from counsellors or teachers.
