Offers of Admission for Ontario High School Students
Basic Requirements for Admission
Admission averages are based on your top six 4U/M marks. Minimum admission requirements range from 65% for most programs, 70% for Biology, Business Administration, Engineering (Chemical & Mining), Psychology and Social Work and 75% for Engineering (Mechanical).
Failed and Repeated Courses
We do not count failed courses and select the higher grade from repeated courses for inclusion in the admission average calculation.
Timing and Process for Admission Decisions
If you attend a semestered school, you may receive an early conditional offer once your grades become available, if you fulfill the following criteria:
- you completed at least three 4U/M courses with an overall average equal to, or better than, the program cut-off and
- you are enrolled in a sufficient number of courses in order to complete at least six 4U/M courses by the end of June.
Note: If you are marginally below the program cut-off, but your overall average in Grade 11 and 12 courses is 70% or higher, you may be considered for an early offer of admission.
If you attend a non-semestered school, you may receive an early conditional offer once the Office of Admissions receives interim grades for at least six 4U/M courses showing an interim average that is equal to, or greater than, the program cut-off.
If you do not receive an early conditional offer of admission, you will be considered on an individual and ongoing basis, as additional marks become available. If you are not offered admission to your preferred program, you will automatically be considered for admission to an alternative program, provided you meet the university entrance requirements. Algoma University has rolling admission; therefore, applications for September 2023 will continue to be received and processed until the start of the semester.
If you are not eligible for the Bachelor of Business Administration, you may be given an alternative offer to the Bachelor of Arts in Finance and Economics, or the Bachelor of Arts in Accounting.
