  •  Grade12 English 

When we accept students to St. Stephen’s University, we look for possibilities and motivation beyond your transcript. Our standard acceptance criterion is a 70% combined average of your university-prep Grade 12 courses. However, if your average is below this level, we will give you a chance to demonstrate to us why your experience at SSU might be more academically successful than your high school marks might suggest. This can be demonstrated in one or more of the following ways: a reference from a teacher or academic source that would attest to the reasonable hope for your ability to complete a degree; a written explanation by you for why high school grades are low (e.g. family circumstances or behavioural issues), and why there would be a good expectation for academic success at SSU; or a statement describing a relevant learning disability including a copy of a valid assessment or plans to obtain one.

Test Scores:
  • Test of English as a Foreign Language (Paper Based) [min. 550] or International English Language Testing System (academic or immigration) [min. 6.5] or Test of English as a Foreign Language (Internet Based) [min. 86]

International students whose primary language is not English must demonstrate proficiency in English by scoring 550 on a paper based TOEFL, 86 on an internet based TOEFL or 6.5 on an IELTS exam. Alternate language proficiency testing may be accepted based on demonstrated equivalency. Admissions staff on rare occasions may waive testing based on clearly demonstrated English fluency in the application process and an oral interview.
