Thinking of applying? Make sure the program is still accepting applications.

Academic Requirements

Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) or equivalent (see Alternative/Equivalent Standing below) with a minimum of six Grade 12 U or M courses including the following program specific requirements.  Typically, a minimum overall average of 70% establishes eligibility for admission consideration; subject to competition individual programs may require higher pre-requisite grades and/or higher overall averages:

  • English/Anglais (ENG4U/EAE4U preferred)
  • Advanced Functions (MHF4U)
  • Two of: Biology (SBI4U), Chemistry (SCH4U) or Physics (SPH4U)
  • The minimum grade(s) required in the subject prerequisites (normally in the 65-70% range) will be determined subject to competition.

 

Completion of all three science courses is recommended.  Biology (SBI4U) is strongly recommended.

Alternate/Equivalent Standing Required From Applicants Not Educated in the Province of Ontario

Applicants educated outside of Ontario must submit evidence of education equivalent to the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) with six Grade 12 U or M courses. Ryerson reserves the right to be the final arbiter of what will be accepted on an equivalency basis. It is essential that program-specific subject requirements and grades for specific Ryerson programs form part of the academic background of applicants from outside Ontario, especially in the last two years of secondary school studies.

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 average/grades above the minimum.

Alternate/equivalent standing outlined below represent the minimum qualifications for admission consideration and are subject to change.
