DOMESTIC STUDENTS

If you are a domestic student applying to U1 or the Faculty of Science, the application fee for 2017/2018 is CAD $90.

High School Students

You can apply to the Faculty of Science directly from high school or you can apply to University 1. In either case, you can choose from a variety of courses to start your degree, whether you are still considering your options or whether you already have made your program choice.

Transiting from University 1

University 1 students who have completed a minimum of 24 credit hours may enter the Faculty of Science by a ‘transit’ process available through the Aurora Student Registration system. There is no application fee to transit to Science.

Please note that University 1 students cannot automatically transit to Science for the Summer term, but can see the Faculty of Science for a manual transit if such a transit is necessary. No minimum grade point average is required but students cannot have failed more than 36 credit hours. Because these students have already submitted complete documentation prior to admission to University 1, there is no additional required documentation or application fee. Please consult the Undergraduate Registration Guide for details regarding transit deadlines.

Details on how to complete the transit process can be found in the University 1 section of the Undergraduate Calendar.
