Entrance Requirements Not Complete Yet?

Students may apply for program entry before they have obtained their entrance requirements. For example, high school students will not have graduated before June, and may not receive their official final grades until August. Students in this situation may be given conditional acceptance based on interim grades submitted in the spring of their grade 12 year. Proof of entrance requirements is required by the end of the first week of August for final acceptance.

Students with minor deficiencies may, at the discretion of the Computing Information Systems department, be considered for conditional or qualifying admission.

Students who do not meet the entrance requirements might also consider the Computer Information Systems Studies program path.
