Admission average
Your admission average is calculated using your respective admission requirements for your province, 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. 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. 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.

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, 2019.
