The University of Ottawa reserves the right to request an English language test score if deemed necessary.
If you wish to study in French and your mother tongue is not French, or if you have not studied full time in French for at least three years, the university reserves the right to administer a written proficiency test.
Competency in English and French is compulsory for French, Translation, and Nutrition programs. If you apply to these programs, you must pass a language proficiency test (with a minimum grade of at least 70%) prior to admission.

Offers of Admission for Ontario High School Students
Basic Requirements for Admission
Some programs have a minimum required admission average between 74% and 76%; however, many programs require an admission average greater than 76%.
For programs in Science and in Engineering, a combined average of 70% is required in the prerequisite subjects (this combined average is currently under review). If you apply to Engineering but lack only one prerequisite credit in mathematics or science, you may be considered for admission depending on your academic average. If you apply to Science but lack only one prerequisite credit in mathematics, you may be considered for admission depending on your academic average. The missing course would then be added to your course load at the university and completed during your first year of studies.
Failed and Repeated Courses
uOttawa uses the highest mark. Therefore, if a course is failed and repeated, uOttawa takes the higher of the two marks.
Timing and Process for Admission Decisions
Beginning in December 2015, the University of Ottawa will issue early conditional offers of admission for fall 2016 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, etc.
All offers of admission are conditional. You must successfully complete a minimum of six eligible 4U/M courses, including prerequisite subjects of the requested program, obtain a specific admission average, and present proof of your Ontario Secondary School Diploma or the equivalent before September.
Details regarding offers of residence and scholarships will be sent with the offer of admission. You must respond before the date indicated in your offer of admission.
