Admission Information

For us to consider you for admission, you must have/be completing your Ontario Secondary School Diploma and meet the minimum admission average for your program, calculated using your top six 4U/M courses, including subject requirements. Where six 4U/M courses are not available, we will use completed or in-progress 4U/M and completed 3U/M courses, including subject requirements, until the last round of offers in May.

The estimated minimum admission range for all programs is 75-80%.

Estimated cut-off admission ranges are based on the admission averages from previous years. We provide these solely as a point of reference. We determine exact cut-offs for the current cycle by the quantity and quality of applications received and the number of places available in the respective program. Admission to the University of Guelph-Humber can be competitive. Having an admission average within the estimated cut-off range does not guarantee an offer of admission.

The Student Profile (SP) is your 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, we may consider your SP if your average is within a discretionary range of the determined cut-off (up to 5%). However, if you have an average of 70-74.9%, we strongly recommend that you submit an SP. If you choose to submit an SP, it is due May 1, 2022.

The University of Guelph-Humber strives to provide equal opportunity for academically qualified students with disabilities. If you believe that your admission average does not reflect your true academic ability as a result of a disability, we encourage you to complete the Supplementary Information Form for Students with Disabilities (SIF-D).

If your admission average does not meet the cut-off for the program, we may consider your SIF-D if your average is within a discretionary range of the determined cut-off (up to 5%). However, if you have an average of 70-74.9%, we strongly recommend that you submit an SIF-D. The form submission deadline is May 1, 2022.
