Requirements for Canadian Students

Completion of the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) or equivalent; Six (6) Grade 12 U or M courses (or equivalent) with a minimum overall average of 70% in six Grade 12 U/M courses, or equivalent. This establishes eligibility for admission; subject to competition, individual programs may establish higher academic averages. Ryerson receives more applications than spaces available. Meeting minimum averages and/or grades does not guarantee admission. Grade 11 results may be used in the early admission offer process. Offers will stipulate Grade 12 final results that must be achieved. All programs also stipulate specific prerequisite subject requirements. Grades required for admission are determined on the basis of competition each year. Grade 12 U English is required for all programs. The preferred English for all programs is ENG4U/EAE4U and is the required English for Journalism, and the RTA School of Media: Media Production and Sport Media programs. Visit the Programs page to determine if your program(s) of interest has additional subject prerequisite requirements and non-academic requirements.

Requirements for International Students

Dynamic, creative and driven students from around the globe choose Ryerson. We offer an education that combines academic rigour with relevant, professional experience in a learning environment that reflects the energy, strength and spirit of Toronto. Our culturally diverse and lively campus includes students from more than 140 countries. The following are general admission requirements and are subject to change. Applicants educated outside of Ontario must submit evidence of education equivalent to the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) with six Grade 12 U or M courses. Please note: Ryerson reserves the right to be the final arbiter of what will be accepted on an equivalency basis. It is essential that subject prerequisite requirements and grades for specific Ryerson programs form part of the academic background of applicants from outside Ontario, especially in the last two years of secondary school studies. Programs may specify non-academic requirements for admission (e.g. portfolio, admission essay, interview, audition, etc.). These programs are referred to as Grades-Plus programs. The specific non-academic requirements for individual Grades-Plus programs, including specific submission dates and procedures, are available by visiting each Program page. Note: for Grades-Plus programs, both academic and non-academic criteria will be used in the admission selection process. Proof of English Language Proficiency may be required. Visit English Language Requirements for details. Admission requirements vary by undergraduate program. Applicants who have completed any post-secondary studies should also visit University/College Transfer Students.
