The minimum academic standing to qualify for admission to 澳门二四六天天彩 is an admission average of C (60%, where 50% is a passing grade), or a 2.0 on a 4.0 point scale, typically on the most recent 30 credits attempted. Meeting this minimum entrance requirement does not guarantee admission, as entry into many degree programs is competitive and some require specific prerequisites.

You will need to submit:

  • A听grade summary or听copy of your transcripts of your current post-secondary institution that shows all courses attempted and in progress.
  • A听grade summary or听copy of your transcripts from all previous post-secondary institutions you鈥檝e attended, and final high school transcripts.
  • If required, translations of transcripts and course descriptions.

澳门二四六天天彩 may review your entire record to ensure that your courses align with the requirements and expectations of your intended 澳门二四六天天彩 degree program. Consistent academic performance and perseverance, progressive course sequencing with increasing rigour, and comparability with studies at 澳门二四六天天彩 are among the factors that help demonstrate your suitability and readiness.

If you are a student transferring from within Canada the following information on credits will apply. If you are a student transferring from outside of Canada, please your questions about transfer credits.

  • Second-year applicants should ideally present听30 credits and satisfy all promotion requirements for advancement to that year.

If this applies to you, you should meet all your high school鈥檚 curriculum requirements in addition to meeting the GPA for admission with the post-secondary courses you completed.听High school requirements听differ depending on where you鈥檙e coming from.
