Prerequisite courses and required averages for students from Ontario for 2024-2025

You must have an Ontario high school diploma with at least six 4U-4M or DU-level courses to be eligible for admission to the first year of university. Please note:

  • All the courses that are prerequisites for your chosen program must be 4U-level courses, unless otherwise indicated.
  • We use your top six interim or final grades in 4U, 4M, or DU courses, including the prerequisites for your chosen program, to calculate your admission average.
  • Please note that we always consider the highest level of mathematics you’ve attempted when calculating your admission average.
  • When you’re finished viewing the prerequisite courses and required averages, go back to the Ontario secondary schools page to follow the next steps and apply.
  • If you are applying to a program in French, go to the French admission requirement page to view the admission average.

Please note that the requirements listed are minimum requirements only and are subject to change. Meeting these minimum requirements does not guarantee admission.

Admission is not guaranteed. The minimum average required depends on the popularity of the program. Applicants who do not have the minimum average required for some of our most competitive programs may be considered for a program in related fields of study.
