Basic Requirements for Admission
Some programs have a minimum required admission average between 70% and 75%. However, many programs require an admission average greater than 75%.

For programs in science and in engineering, a combined average of 70% is required in the prerequisite subjects. Applicants in engineering who lack only one prerequisite credit in mathematics or science may be admitted with an overall average of 3% higher than the average required. Applicants in Science who lack only one prerequisite credit in mathematics may be admitted with an overall average of 3% higher than the average required. The missing course will be added to the student's course load at the university.

Failed and Repeated Courses
When analyzing the files of secondary school applicants, Ottawa uses the highest mark. Therefore, if a course is failed and repeated, Ottawa takes the higher of the two marks, which is usually the one earned after repeating the course.

Timing and Process for Admission Decisions
Beginning in December 2010, the university will issue early conditional offers of admission for fall 2011 to highly qualified applicants. The university will continue to issue offers of admission to qualified applicants until the end of May.

Early offers are based on the average of 3U/M marks or a combination of 3U/M and available 4U/M final marks. No early offers are extended for programs with additional requirements such as tests, portfolios, interviews, and so forth.

All offers of admission are conditional. Applicants must successfully complete a minimum of six eligible 4U/M  courses, including prerequisite subjects for the program requested, and present proof of the Ontario Secondary School Diploma or the equivalent before September.

Details regarding offers of residence and scholarships will be sent with the offer of admission. Applicants must respond before the date indicated in their offer of admission.
