Basic Requirements for Admission
Grades are the sole determining basis for admission to many Ryerson programs (grades-selective programs), while a combination of grades, portfolios, interviews and/or auditions is used to make admission decisions for the remaining grades-plus selective programs.

While a minimum average of 70% (in six 4U/M courses) from a secondary school establishes a student's eligibility to apply for Ryerson admission, individual Ryerson programs may establish higher required averages for admission.

Individual Ryerson programs may stipulate specific academic prerequisites for admission, including specific courses and minimum grades. Many programs also stipulate non-academic requirements for admission (e.g., portfolio, admission essay, interview, audition). Ryerson reserves the right to require a minimum of 60% or higher in all the subject prerequisites.

Secondary school students are encouraged to achieve as much breadth of preparation as possible in the course of their studies leading to the Ontario Secondary School Diploma, while also meeting the stated subject prerequisite requirements of the program to which they intend to apply.

Failed and Repeated Courses
This policy is under review. Currently, Ryerson will calculate an applicant's overall average using final marks in his/her best six 4U/M courses, which may include repeated/upgraded course marks.

Timing and Process for Admission Decisions
Given the need for the university to communicate non-academic requirements to candidates within a reasonable time frame, for students to prepare for the non-academic part of the admissions process and for Faculty to review and interview, Ryerson anticipates that a number of applicants will receive offers of admission between February and May 2011.

All students who have submitted a complete application (including amendments or additional choices) by the February 1, 2011, application deadline for grades-plus selective programs, and March 1, 2011, for grades-selective programs, will be guaranteed equal consideration for the Ryerson program(s) to which they have applied. Ryerson applicants who wish to be considered for more than one program are strongly encouraged to include all program choices on the OUAC application. The presentation of admission averages on eINFO are estimates only, and are subject to change.
