Admission Requirements

Qualifying for admission to Ryerson

The Yeates School of Graduate Studies is committed to maintaining high quality graduate and professional programs and to offering admission to those applicants that are best qualified and most likely to succeed in these programs.  Due to the competitive nature of our programs, it is not possible to offer admission to everyone who applies that meets the minimum entrance requirements for the program.  All applications will be considered on an individual basis and subject to competition.

The minimum grade requirement for admission consideration to a master's program is a 3.0/4.33 (B or equivalent) in the last two years of study within a four year undergraduate (or equivalent) bachelor's degree. For doctoral studies, you must have achieved a minimum of 3.33/4.33 (B+ or equivalent) in your master’s program.  

The grading scale that is provided by your institution will be used to calculate your GPA.

Applicants who have not completed two or more years of full-time postsecondary education at a Canadian university or a university at which English was the primary language of instruction must provide proof of language proficiency. You will be required to provide certification of English language proficiency through one of the accepted examinations listed below. Scores are valid for two years from the test date.

It is important to understand that meeting the minimum English proficiency requirements does not guarantee admission. Programs may set additional requirements to these minimum standards.

For exemption from this requirement, applicants are required to provide an official statement from their institution's Registrar's office confirming the use of English as the Medium of Instruction for the duration of their study.   This letter will be required to be submitted through the Applicant Portal once you have applied and have been asked to submit your documents. This applies to all internationally educated applicants, including those that are currently studying within North America.

If this documentation is not provided, your application will remain incomplete and your application will be delayed.

This is for informational purposes only. A formal academic assessment will be done at the time of application. Applicants are required to submit a copy of their institution's grading scale with their transcript(s). 

Meeting the minimum grade point average requirements does not guarantee admission. Subject to competition, candidates may be required to present averages/grades above the minimum.

Applicants to master’s programs require a four year undergraduate degree with a minimum average of B/3.00 in either the last two years of study or in the overall average. For doctoral studies, you must have achieved a minimum of B+/3.33 in your master’s program. Admissions to doctoral programs require a Master's level degree awarded after the completion of a four year bachelor’s degree or equivalent.

The grade equivalent listed below is based on a mid B (3.00) standing only. Some programs may require a higher grade point average for competitive consideration.

Three year first cycle degrees completed in accordance with the Bologna Process may be deemed equivalent to a four year bachelor's degree.
