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. Admission to the University of Guelph-Humber can be competitive. Possession of an admission average within the estimated cut-off range does not guarantee an offer of admission. 

Repeated courses

The University will use the highest grade reported from a Ministry-approved institution.

Transcripts

Your grades will automatically be submitted by your high school.

Student Profile

The Student Profile (SP) is your opportunity to tell us about factors that may have impacted your grades. If your admission average does not meet the cut-off for the program to which you have applied, your SP may be considered if your average falls within a discretionary range of the determined cut-off range (up to 5%). If you have an admission average of 70–74.9%, it is strongly recommended that you submit a SP to be considered for admission. Profiles must be completed online by May 1, 2018.

Student Profile for Students with Disabilities

The University of Guelph-Humber strives to provide equal opportunity for academically qualified students with disabilities. If you believe that your admission average does not reflect your true academic ability as a result of a disability, you are encouraged to complete the Student Profile Form with Disabilities. The form is considered along with your marks in determining admission and the deadline to apply is May 1, 2018. Read more details about supporting documentation submission and complete the form online.
