Repeated courses and non-day school courses

Repeated courses

If you have repeated a course, we'll use your highest grade when determining your admission average. However, as we make admission decisions, we may take into consideration any repeated courses. We do this to ensure all applicants are compared fairly.

When you submit your online Admission Information Form (AIF), you'll be asked to explain why you repeated any courses. We'll send you instructions for the AIF once you've applied and we may verify this information before we make an admission decision.

Programs with specific policies about repeated courses

Courses other than day school

We will consider grades from schools that are accredited by your provincial Ministry of Education. For some programs, we may ask you to identify courses taken or being taken outside of your regular day school and to explain why the course(s) was not completed in your regular school.

If you are applying to a program in the Faculty of Mathematics and take a course outside of your regular day school, you may jeopardize your chances of being admitted.

The following are examples of courses we'll accept if they're provincially accredited.

  • Day school (high school)
  • Summer school
  • Night school
  • Online
  • Private school
