Optional Supplementary Documentation Forms
Student Profile Form (SPF)
We recognize that non-academic factors play an important role in students' lives. If you are a high school applicant, the Student Profile Form (SPF) is your opportunity to tell Admission Services about activities in which you have been involved that have helped you develop leadership and citizenship qualities. Factors beyond your control that have negatively affected your academic performance, such as illness or extenuating circumstances, will also be considered. If your admission average in May does not meet the cut-off for the program to which you have applied, your SPF may be considered if your average falls within a discretionary range of the final cutoff (up to 5%). Submission is optional but strongly encouraged.
If you are a Canadian Citizen or Permanent Resident, the Online Student Profile Form must be submitted by May 1, 2021. If you are a high school student outside of Canada and are not following Ontario (OSSD) curriculum, you are encouraged to submit the SPF at the time of application but before March 1, 2021.
See the Student Profile Form page for frequently asked questions.
Supplemental Information Form for Students with Disabilities (SIF-D)
The University of Guelph strives to provide equal opportunity for academically qualified students with disabilities. If you believe that your admission average does not reflect your true academic ability as a result of a disability, you are encouraged to complete the Supplemental Information Form for Students with Disabilities. This form is considered along with your admission average in determining admission. You are encouraged to contact Student Accessibility Services as early as possible to discuss your needs and academic background. Student Accessibility Services helps students overcome any barriers that could impede full participation in the University community.
The SIF-D is made available online in November. The deadline for submission is May 1, 2021.
Once your application has been received in Admission Services, you may be asked to complete the Education Declaration Form. You will know if you are required to complete this form by reviewing either communication received by Admission Services, specifying what supporting documentation you are required to submit, or checking required documents in Web Advisor. If you see “Education Declaration Form” listed as a required document in your Web Advisor account, we must receive this form before further reviewing your application. Please complete the PDF form and submit it through your WebAdvisor account.

The Student Profile and Mature and Transfer Student Profile will provide you with an opportunity to tell the Admission Committee about activities you have been involved in that have contributed to your personal development, such as work experience, volunteer opportunities and community involvement.
