Information for

Alternate offers of admission

If you're not admitted to the program to which you've applied, you may be considered for admission to an alternate program provided you meet minimum admission requirements and places are available.

  • If a program is available in both co-op and regular and you're not admitted to co-op, you will normally automatically be considered for the corresponding regular program.
  • If you apply to the co-op program, you do not also need to apply to the regular version of the same program. 
  • In some programs, very limited admission to co-op is also available in second year.
  • The following chart indicates alternate programs for which applicants are normally considered and should be used as a guide only.
