Arts and Science Admission and Fees Full-Time Studies


Full-Time Studies

a FULL-TIME STUDIES
Candidates for admission to full-time studies will be considered for September entry only. No other full-time entry point is possible.

Candidates for admission to full-time studies apply as follows:

i Students in Ontario Secondary Schools apply through their schools and submit the applications (normally in conjunction with the school Guidance Office) to the Ontario Universities' Application Centre.

ii Other Canadian Candidates in or out of school should use the Ontario Universities' Application Centre web application form available at: www.ouac.on.ca.

iii Candidates from Outside Canada should use the Ontario Universities' Application Centre web application form available at www.ouac.on.ca.

iv Conditional Offers of admission to full-time study may be made prior to the availability of final grades. Typically, these are made to applicants in Ontario secondary schools from April to May. For applicants not attending an Ontario secondary school, conditional offers are made on the same criteria but decisions are made on an on-going basis until the end of May. Conditional offers are not made for part-time admission.

Conditional offers for full-time students only become final once the applicant has satisfactorily met all conditions, namely completed all required high school or CEGEP courses and has achieved a diploma or equivalent (e.g., OSSD) with the minimum required average.

v Deferral of Offers
Applicants who are offered admission to full-time study in the first year of a Faculty of Arts and Science degree program may request a deferral for one year. To be eligible for a deferral, the applicant must:

  • have accepted the offer of admission by following the instructions included with the offer of admission, to the Ontario Universities' Application Centre by the stated date;
  • have sent a written request for a deferral that is received at Undergraduate Admission by 1 August;
  • have a significantly compelling reason warranting a deferral; and have final grades that meet the competitive standard for admission to the degree program applied.

Students requesting a deferral are advised to select courses pending the decision on the request for a deferral.

Candidates who are granted permission to defer their admission must re-apply to take up the deferred offer by the application deadline of the following year. Applications are available at the Ontario Universities' Application Centre's web site, www.ouac.on.ca.
