How will my application for admission as a secondary school student be evaluated?
The best way to understand how your application will be evaluated is to
- confirm that you have met the requirements; and
- review how the courses you have completed compare to Lists A and B (see admission requirements).
Complete a minimum of five approved grade 12 courses
(six approved grade 12 courses for Ontario and Saskatchewan applicants)
All approved courses matter
*Note: the following courses are approved: Entrepreneurship, Financial Accounting, Engineering, and Mechatronics.
Focus on List A courses
Explore within List A and B courses
If you repeat an approved grade 11 or 12 course within the secondary school system the higher course mark will be used for admission, either your first course attempt or your new mark.
If you have already completed your grade 12 year and are upgrading or taking additional high school courses, then an official, final transcript must be submitted to the Undergraduate Admissions office by the document deadline. All courses must be complete by this deadline.
NOTE: Upgraded high school courses completed at a College must be at the ABE level. Our office will not use a course upgraded at a College in the admission average calculation if the course was previously attempted in high school. For details, refer to the academic calendar.
