What transcript information do Ontario Universities use to determine if you will get an offer to a program?


For early admission; an Ontario University will look at your grade 11 marks.  If your grade 11 over-all average is high you may get a conditional early offer to a program of your choice pending your required 6 U/M grade 12 course marks and that you meet all other program and graduation requirements.

For regular admission, an Ontario University will look at your semester 1 final marks and your semester 2 mid-term marks to determine if you will get a conditional offer to a program of your choice.  Remember, all offers are conditional that you meet program and graduation requirements.


If you have a question about specific program requirements, please visit the university website.​
