Information for

Admission Information Form (AIF)

When we make our admissions decisions, we look at other factors in addition to grades. You can use the Admission Information Form (AIF) to

  • tell us more about yourself and any extracurricular activities
  • explain any extenuating circumstances that may have affected your grades and/or which you would like taken into consideration during the admissions process
  • brag a little!

The AIF is required for admission for all programs in the Faculty of Mathematics and Faculty of Engineering along with the Architecture, Accounting and Financial Management, Computing and Financial Management, and Conditional Admission to Pharmacy programs.
