Requirements for Canadian Students

Applicants must have completed a secondary school diploma. A minimum average of at least 80% is required for the Orientation to a Master of Arts in History. A minimum average of 70% is required for admission consideration for all other undergraduate programs. Averages for all programs are based on the best six 4U/4M courses or provincial equivalent courses including program-specific prerequisites.

The admissions cut-off averages for our limited enrollment programs (BPHE, Nursing and the OMAH program) are determined each year and can be higher than the stated minimum. College and university transfer applicants have a number of admissions pathways available to them and should reach out to us to find the best option for your application!
