Admission Information

To be considered 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.

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 and are provided solely 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. 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, your SP may be considered if your average is within a discretionary range of the determined cut-off range (up to 5%). However, if you have an average of 70-74.9%, it is strongly recommended that you submit an SP to be considered for admission. If you choose to submit an SP online, it is due May 1, 2020.

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, you are encouraged to complete the Supplementary Information Form for Students with Disabilities (SIF-D). The information submitted is considered, along with your grades, in determining admission. The form submission deadline is May 1, 2020.
