Offers of Admission for Ontario High School Students

Basic Requirements for Admission

If you have an average of 75% and higher, you will be considered for admission to all programs at the University of Guelph.

Failed and Repeated Courses

We will use the highest grade reported for any repeated/failed course.

Timing and Process for Admission Decisions

We will begin making offers of admission in February to applicants with high academic standing. Early offers of admission may make use of 3U/M grades. Offers of admission will be made on a rolling basis until mid-May. If you have an admission average of 75% or higher, you will be considered for admission. Student Profile Forms will be reviewed in May to consider applicants who fall within 5% of the established cut-off.

Some programs may have additional requirements, including higher final admission averages. All offers are conditional upon completing all high school diploma requirements, including a final admission average, as specified in the offer letter. The final admission average is calculated using six 4U/M courses including required subjects.

Alternative Offers: Normally, you can expect to receive only one offer of admission from Guelph. The highest choice to Guelph will be considered first. The next choice is only considered if you are not admissible to your highest choice at Guelph. For this reason, you are strongly advised to place your preferred program as your highest choice. If you apply for, but are not admitted to, a co-op program, you will be automatically considered for the regular program. You may then re-apply to co-op after your first year of study.

If you are not admitted to Bio-Medical Science or Human Kinetics, you will be automatically considered for Bachelor of Science, Biological Science.

Student Profile Forms: The University of Guelph recognizes that non-academic factors play an important role in students' lives. The Student Profile Form (SPF) is an opportunity for you to tell us about the activities you are involved in that have helped develop your leadership and citizenship qualities. Any factors beyond your control that have negatively affected your academic performance, such as illness or personal problems, will also be considered when making decisions.

Alternative Offers

If you are not admitted to Environmental Engineering, you will be automatically considered for Water Resources Engineering.
