Graduates from High Schools outside Ontario

If you received a conditional offer of admission, you must satisfy certain conditions in order to keep your admission offer. This conditional offer is also based on your mid-term or interim grades, and so we must receive your final grades by August 15 in order to confirm the admission offer.

Students must arrange for their official transcript with final grades to be forwarded to Admissions Services as soon as it is available. Those who do not forward their grades risk having their offer withdrawn and their registration deleted.

Once we receive your final grades, we will reassess your application to ensure that you still meet the requirements for your program. If you no longer meet the required averages, we will have to withdraw your offer. Where it is possible we will give you an alternate offer of admission.

If you received a conditional offer, you must:

  • Accept your offer of admission by the deadline indicated on your offer in order to reserve your space in the program. If you do not respond by the deadline, it could result in your offer of admission being withdrawn. If you accept your offer by the deadline, we will send you information on registering for your courses.
  • Meet the program requirements detailed in the chart below in order to retain your offer of admission. Each program has specific requirements, including overall and prerequisite averages, so please review the chart carefully. If you have any questions, please contact Admissions Services.
  • Successfully complete the requirements for your high school diploma.
