Basis and Timing of Offers of Admission

Admission decisions are made on evidence of enrolment in 4U or 4M grades (midterm/interim and/or final) including required courses. The minimum average for full-time admission consideration to most degree programs at Nipissing will be at least 70% and may be higher. The cut-off average for some specific programs and/or majors will be at least 75%, as noted below. Nipissing University will begin to make admission offers in February. Nipissing will continue to make admission offers from March to June as midterm/interim and final grades are received.

Admission averages will be calculated using the best six 4U or 4M marks (midterm/interim and final) including required courses. Required courses must be at the 4U level. Some applicants may receive early offers based on exceptional Grade 11 results. All admission offers made are conditional pending successful completion of the OSSD and a minimum of six 4U or 4M courses, including required courses as specified, by the end of June 2007. Offers are also conditional upon the maintenance of a minimum average (stated in an Offer of Admission) on final grades presented as of June 30.

Applications received by May 1 will be considered for admission and entrance scholarships equally.

Orientation to Teaching (OTT) may be added to any Nipissing degree program (except Nursing) by simply selecting "with Orientation to Teaching" at the time of completing the OUAC on-line application.

An OTT Supplemental Application Package will be mailed automatically to those who apply to a Nipissing degree with OTT. They can also be downloaded from the Nipissing University website, www.nipissingu.ca/registrar/. Applicants who do not submit the OTT Supplemental Application will not be considered. The deadline for submission of the complete Supplemental Application is February 23, 2007. On the Supplemental Application, applicants will indicate either the Elementary or Secondary Stream. Applicants to Nipissing’s degree with OTT cannot use two choices on their application to apply to both a degree AND a degree with OTT. Applicants can only apply to each degree program once. Applicants who are selected for OTT and who are eligible to the program to which they applied, may apply OTT to that program.

Please note that a minimum of 70% is required in ENG4U for all applicants to OTT. A minimum of 60% in a 4U math is required for consideration for OTT-Elementary. Admission to the degree program is separate from that of OTT. Applicants may be offered admission to the degree program but not selected for OTT. Those applicants can re-apply for OTT at the end of their first and/or second year at Nipissing.

Alternate offers: Applicants who do not meet admission requirements or admission averages for the programs applied to will automatically be considered for an alternate program for which they do qualify.
