Admission Requirements

Regardless of educational background, all applicants to undergraduate programs must have specific prerequisite subject knowledge for their intended program of study. Review the prerequisite subjects for each program and other program-specific requirements.

Current high school students and high school graduates (with no postsecondary education) are evaluated based on their high school courses.

The specific average or standing required for admission varies from year to year. Students are selected by taking into consideration a wide range of criteria, including school marks, distribution of subjects taken and relevance to the academic program. Meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee acceptance. Preference is given to applicants with the best qualifications.

UOIT will use the highest grade obtained in a course to calculate your admissions average.

If your grades were affected by exceptional circumstances that you can document, you are encouraged to contact the Registrar’s office with the appropriate information. Find more information about what constitutes an exceptional circumstance.

Transfer Credits

Credits from other universities and colleges will be evaluated on an individual basis. You must submit institutionally prepared, detailed course syllabi from your previous and/or present institution(s) for transfer credit evaluation. For direct equivalency, the course content from the host institution must meet a minimum content equivalency to an UOIT course.

Applicants who attended a postsecondary institution within Ontario must request their transcripts electronically through the 105 application. All other applicants must request that your host institution(s) send official original transcripts directly to UOIT.

Note: UOIT will not accept student‑issued or electronic transcripts as official (i.e., transcripts that are sent from or hand‑delivered by students).

Once you receive an offer of admission to a degree program, you will receive a preliminary transfer credit evaluation based on existing UOIT equivalencies. Once you accept your offer, any remaining postsecondary courses will be evaluated for transfer credit.

Find more information about transfer credits.

English For Academic Purposes

When they enter the university’s EAP program, qualified students will receive conditional admission to their degree program.
