Applicants from a College or University

The minimum academic standing to qualify for admission to the University as a transfer student from a college or university is successful completion of 24 transferable credits with a C average (60% where 50% is a passing grade), or grade point average of 2.0 (calculated on a 4.0-point scale1). Applicants presenting fewer than 24 credits are evaluated on the basis of both final secondary school grades and the partial post-secondary studies completed.

For applicants presenting more than 24 transferable credits, the admission average is based on the average of the most recent 30 credits of college or university courses attempted, including failed and repeated courses, unless otherwise prescribed by the program to which admission is sought.

Because of enrolment limitations, most programs require a higher average for admission than the University minimum, and may require a minimum standing in specified courses. Applicants should consult the relevant faculty or school entry requirements for a statement of admission requirements for the program to which they seek admission. To be eligible for second year, applicants must normally have successfully completed 30 credits, and satisfied all promotion requirements for advancement to that year. Applicants to third year must have successfully completed 54-60 credits, and satisfied all promotion requirements for advancement to that year.
