Offers of Admission

Basic Requirements for Admission

Admission average: You will be considered for admission with an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (or equivalent) and an admission average calculated using your top six 4U/M courses (or equivalent), including subject requirements. This average is calculated using the most current grade data available to us through the admission process.

Estimated cut-off admission ranges: The estimated cut-off range for all 7 programs is 75–80%. It is based on the admission averages from previous years, and is provided only as a point of reference. Exact cut-offs for the current cycle will be determined by the quantity and quality of applications received and the number of places available in the respective program. Possession of an admission average within the estimated cut-off range does not guarantee an offer of admission.

Subject requirements: Can be found on the University of Guelph-Humber website.

Offers of admission: Offers are sent on an ongoing basis from December until the end of May, and applicants are assessed throughout those months. All domestic applicants will receive an admission decision by May 27, 2023. Your final grades, once received, must fulfill the conditions of your offer. 

Student Profile (SP) & Supplementary Information Form for Students with Disabilities (SIF-D)  (optional supplemental information): The SP and SIF-D offer you an opportunity to tell us about factors that may have impacted your grades. If your admission average does not meet the cut-off for the program to which you applied, your SP and/or SIF-D may be considered in May if your average is within a discretionary range of the determined cut-off (up to 5%). If you have an admission average of 70–74.9%, it is strongly recommended that you submit a profile to be considered for admission. Profiles must be completed on our website and are due May 1, 2023.

Rank

If you apply to more than 1 program at the University of Guelph-Humber and you have never attended postsecondary studies, you will be considered for all programs you apply for.

If you are a transfer applicant (i.e., have attended any postsecondary institution) and you apply to more than 1 program at the University of Guelph-Humber, you can expect to receive only 1 offer of admission from the University. The highest-ranked choice will be considered first. Only if you are not admissible to your highest choice will your next choice be considered. If you want to reorder your University of Guelph-Humber program rankings, please amend your application on the OUAC website.

Failed and Repeated Courses

The University of Guelph-Humber will use the highest grade reported for grade 12 coures taken at a Ministry-approved school prior to June 2023, regardless of format.

Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate

Advanced Placement exam results of 4 or more may qualify for university credit to a maximum of 2 credits (4 courses). Official transcripts are required. Read more about Advanced Placement.

Timing and Process for Admission Decisions

Timing of offers (December to end of May) and the grades considered for each round of offers is described below.
