General admission information for high school students

Please consult our main admission website for general information, including information for international applicants, language requirements and course equivalents. You can also find information on tuition and financial aid, application forms, and key dates.

Due to the competitive nature of the programs, almost all of the offers to the business programs and plans are made in early May. We make very few early offers to the programs. Please be patient!

Additional information can also be found on the Faculty of Math prospective student pages.


Please consult the funding and awards page for information on entrance scholarships.

Special notes

Admissions Information Form (AIF)

Admissions to these programs and plans is not based on marks alone. A significant part of the admissions process includes a review of your Admission Information Form (which will be available from our website after we receive your application from Ontario Universities' Application Centre (OUAC)). This form includes questions about your extracurricular activities and work experience, and will be a factor in our decision to offer you admission. It’s also a requirement if you want to be considered for entrance scholarships. Included with this form is a teacher reference section. Instructions on how to complete this form will be sent with the acknowledgement of your application.

Euclid Mathematics Contest

Strong performance in the Euclid Mathematics Contest can help earn you a place in the Faculty of Mathematics.

Additionally, most of the Faculty of Mathematics scholarships are based in part on Euclid score. You are strongly encouraged to write the contest as even a weak score is better than no score at all. Please visit the Centre for Education in Mathematics and Computing (CEMC) website for more information on the math contests.

International students interested in Mathematics/Chartered Professional Accountancy (CPA)

Due to restrictions imposed by the Institute for Chartered Accountants of Ontario and Co-op, international students who are not Canadian citizens are not eligible for admission to Mathematics/CPA at this time.
