Admission Requirements

How does Ryerson Assess Applications for Admission?

The complete academic record of all your secondary and post-secondary studies (e.g. college, university) is considered as part of the competitive selection process, unless otherwise noted. Admission is based on competitive grades in program specific subject requirements and competitive overall admission averages. Grade 11 results may be used in the early admission offer process. Some programs (Grades-Plus) also specify non-academic requirements for admission (e.g., portfolio, essay, interview, audition).

The number of applications we receive greatly exceeds the number of spaces available in each program and the possession of the minimum requirements in no way guarantees acceptance. Due to competition candidates may be required to present averages/grades above the minimum(s). Admission consideration is based on the information available at the time of application review. Ryerson does not issue alternate Offers of Admission.
