You have graduated from a Canadian high school, have not completed any postsecondary studies, and have completed six or more 4U/M courses (or equivalent).

Before applying

  • Check that you meet the admission requirements:
    If you have an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (or equivalent) and have completed six or more 4U/M courses (or equivalent), then your admission average will be calculated using your top six 4U/M courses (or equivalent), including subject requirements, similar to an applicant currently attending high school.

Admission average
Your admission average is calculated using your respective admission requirements for your province/territory, including your subject requirements. This average is calculated using the most current grade data at the time we send you an offer of admission. Offers are conditional based on your admission average until final grades and all conditions are met.

Final admission average
Your final admission average is calculated using final grade data sent to us. Renewable entrance scholarships are based on final admission average.

Estimated cut-off range
Estimated cut-off ranges are based on the admission averages from previous years and are provided solely as a point of reference. Exact cut-offs for the current cycle will be determined by the quantity and quality of applications received and the number of places available in the respective program. Possession of an admission average within the estimated cut-off range does not guarantee an offer of admission.

Repeated courses, summer school, night school and correspondence
The University will use the highest grade reported for grade 12 courses taken at a Ministry-approved institution school prior to June 2021, regardless of format.

English language requirements
You will be required to provide proof of English proficiency if English is not your first language and you have studied less than four years in an English language school (minimum high school level). Test results must be less than two years prior to your application.

Advanced Placement (AP)
Advanced Placement exam results of four or more may qualify for university credit to a maximum of 2.0 credits (four courses). Official transcripts are required.

International Baccalaureate (IB)
If you are applying with an IB diploma, you should present a minimum academic score of 24. Reported bonus points will be taken into consideration. You should complete the diploma with six subjects: three higher level and three standard level. You should also include the specific subject requirements for the program to which you are applying among your higher and standard levels. Please note that any Higher Level or Standard Level mathematics course is an acceptable prerequisite for programs that require math. You should ensure that your predicted scores are submitted using the seven-point scale. You are eligible to receive a maximum of 2.0 credits for grades of 5 or better on higher level courses.

Ontario high school students registered in an IB program will automatically have their IB courses converted into Ontario U- and M-level equivalents. IB scores will be converted into percentage grades by your high school. Admission and scholarships will be determined using the conversions as submitted. You are eligible to receive a maximum of 2.0 credits for grades of 5 or better on higher level courses.

      About your offer
      Every offer of admission is conditional. When you accept your offer it is with the assumption that all conditions of that offer will be met by a deadline outlined in your offer letter.

      Your offer of admission is valid unless you fail to meet the conditions of the offer or you decline the offer. If you are not contacted by the University, then your offer of admission stands as outlined in the original offer (i.e., we do not send out a final offer letter). In this case, NO NEWS MEANS GOOD NEWS.

      Don't hesitate to contact us, with any concerns.

      Deferrals
      If you have been admitted to a program at the University but are unable to begin your studies in the fall, you may request to defer your offer for one year. To request a deferral application, please email Admission Services before July 19, 2021. Deferrals are considered on a case-by-case basis.

      To be considered for a deferral you must:

      • accept your offer of admission on OUAC by the June 1 deadline noted in your offer letter
      • meet all conditions outlined in your offer of admission
      • submit the deferral application form by July 19, 2021 to Admission Services
      • not attend any other postsecondary institution during the deferral period

    • Apply for residence by June 1, 2021
      If you have received an offer of admission, you are eligible to apply for residence. Residence operates on a first-come, first-served basis; therefore, you are encouraged to apply as soon as possible (after you receive an offer). Applications for fall residence open online on February 1, 2021. The application process is a two-step process that can take a few days to complete because you need to wait for step 1 to be processed before you can complete step 2. Please do not leave applying for residence to the last minute. Please check your offer package for more details.
