Generally, an applicant’s complete academic record, including secondary school as well as all post-secondary studies (e.g. college, university, or other post-secondary institutions) will be reviewed and considered as part of the competitive selection process. Ryerson receives more applications than spaces available. The averages/grades required for admission selection to each program is determined on the basis of competition each year. Possession of minimum averages and/or grades does not guarantee admission.
You are required to declare all secondary and post-secondary institutions attended on your application and Supplementary Form and submit transcripts from each institution (some exceptions apply, see below).
Students admitted to a Ryerson undergraduate degree program must complete at least one half (50%) of the program’s curriculum at Ryerson. No more than a total of 50% of the program’s requirements may consist of advanced standing/credits (transfer credits, challenge credits, credits granted on a Letter of Permission).
Course descriptions/outlines of post-secondary studies are generally not required for admission consideration; if this information is needed, a request will be forwarded to you. Detailed course outlines may be required as part of the transfer credit application process, after admission has been granted.
Unless otherwise stated in an Offer of Admission, the following applies if your complete post-secondary diploma or degree is used to grant you admission to an upper level:
- Courses will not be recorded as individual transfer credits and may not be used to apply for transfer credit.
- The original grades will not be recorded as graded courses on your Ryerson academic record.
- Courses will not be used in the GPA calculation.
