Offers of Admission for Ontario High School Students

Basic Requirements for Admission

You must have an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) or equivalent and a minimum of six 4U/M courses or equivalent, including program-specific prerequisite courses, with a minimum 70% overall final average (calculated using the best six 4U/M courses).

Failed and Repeated Courses

If you present a repeated 4U/M course, we will count the best grade achieved in the course toward your admission average.

Timing and Process for Admission Decisions

Early conditional offers of admission will be made in December 2015 and will continue on a rolling basis. To be considered for early admission, you must be registered in at least six 4U/M courses, including the appropriate prerequisites for your chosen program. Early conditional offers of admission will be based on final first-semester Grade 12 grades, interim grades and/or final 3U/M grades.

All offers of admission are conditional pending the successful completion of the OSSD with a minimum of six 4U/M courses or equivalent, including any outlined conditions and program-specific prerequisite courses, with a minimum overall average as outlined in your offer (calculated using the best six 4U/M courses). 

In most instances, if you are not offered admission to your first-choice program, you will automatically be considered for admission to an alternative program, provided you meet the admission requirements of that program.

Alternative Offers

If you do not meet the admission requirements for your program of choice but do meet the General Admission Requirements of Lakehead University, you will automatically be considered for an alternate program.



  • 4U English, 
  • MHF4U (with a minimum final grade of 60%),
  • SPH4U,
  • SCH4U, and
  • two additional 4U/M credits.

Language Requirements

If English is not your first language, you must demonstrate that you can cope with the language demands of an English-language university.

If you apply to an undergraduate program at Lakehead University, you may meet our English language requirements if you successfully completed, or are in the process of completing, three full years of recent study in an English-language school system.

If English is not your native language, and you cannot verify that you recently studied in an English-language school system for more than three full years of full-time study, you will be required to present proof of English-language proficiency.

Lakehead University accepts the following as proof of English-language proficiency:

  1. Successful completion of a recognized language test (i.e. TOEFL, IELTS, CAEL or MELAB) with the required minimum scores
  2. Successful completion of Lakehead University’s Academic English Program
  3. Successful completion of one of our approved Pathway Partner’s ESL programs

See more details about our English-language requirements.

Note: Some academic units may require a higher score; meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission to Lakehead University. Grade 12 University English (ENG4U) cannot be used to satisfy the English-language proficiency requirement.
