Program notes

  • An Admission Information Form (AIF) is required for admission to this program. Instructions for the AIF will be sent once we receive your application.
  • You're strongly encouraged to write the Euclid Mathematics Contest and/or the Canadian Senior Mathematics Contest. Results of the contests will be used in scholarship decisions and possibly admission decisions for programs in the Faculty of Mathematics.
  • If your first language is not English, you may need to meet our English language requirements.
  • If you repeat a required course or take a course outside of your regular day school, you may jeopardize your chances of being admitted to the Faculty of Mathematics. You should take all your courses in regular day school and do well in your first attempt. There will normally be no penalty if you take online courses during your regular school year along with a full course load through your high school or school board.
  • Required courses that are more than three years old may need to be updated. Email the admissions office for more information.
