A review of an applicant’s holistic academic profile, from high-school to the present, is undertaken when making admission decisions. Possession of the minimum requirements or admission average ranges that are listed online or within university publications should not be viewed as a guarantee of admission. When making holistic assessments, we may consider a variety of aspects including consistency of academic results over multiple years, results in specific course prerequisites, repeated course attempts and external test scores. Certain programs may also require supplemental materials or activities (e.g. portfolio review), and generally, transcripts showing complete high-school and post-secondary attendance will be required.

Visiting Students: See Visiting Student admission requirements.

Important: For final admission, all documents must be originals (ie official) and received directly from the home institution. Conditional admission is possible with non-official documents; however, to proceed into courses, the official original transcripts must be provided before the start of classes.

Replaceable documents become the property of York University and will not be returned. We keep supporting documents for one year, after which we destroy materials related to your application.

If request is made in writing to Admissions upon application, irreplaceable documents will be returned to the original document holder.
