Prerequisite courses and required averages for students from Quebec (Sec. V) for 2024-2025

You must have a Quebec Secondary School Diploma and have passed at least five Secondary V courses to be admitted into first year of university. Please note:

  • All prerequisite courses for your chosen program must be Secondary V courses, unless otherwise indicated.
  • We use your top five grades in Secondary V courses, including the prerequisites for your chosen program, to calculate your admission average.
  • If one of your prerequisites is a Secondary IV course, you must have successfully completed this course but we do not include this grade in your admission average.

Before applying, make sure you meet the admission requirements.

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.
