Out of Province High School Applicant: How to Apply

You are currently attending a high school in Canada, outside of Ontario, on a full-time basis and have not completed any postsecondary studies.

Applications to the University for fall 2020 are due January 15, 2020.

Before applying

  • To be considered for admission, you must:

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
The estimated cut-off ranges for all of our seven programs is 75-80% and is 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 for grade 12 courses taken at a Ministry-approved school prior to June 2020, 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.

  • Complete supplemental information (optional)

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 is 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 and are due May 1, 2020.

Supplementary Information Form for Students with Disabilities (optional)
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 Supplementary Information Form for Students with Disabilities (SIF-D) online at the University of Guelph website. It will be considered along with your marks in determining admission. If you have an admission average of 70–74.9%, it is strongly recommended that you submit a SIF-D to be considered for admission. The deadline is May 1, 2020. Documentation is processed at the University of Guelph Student Accessibility Services.
