Special Notes:

  1. Part-time Studies: At the University of Guelph we do not have special admission requirements or criteria for part-time studies. To apply to a degree program, you must be qualified for admission; you must possess prerequisite courses and the required admission average. The number of courses you register for is your choice. If you register in fewer than 2.00 credits in a semester you are considered to be part-time. The application process is the same as for full-time students.
  2. Semester Entry Points: Semester one (currently registered high school students or graduates) applicants are considered for the Fall semester only. Post-secondary transfer students are normally considered for all three entry points. Some programs, however, may have limited access or no entry during the Winter and Summer entry points. A minority of programs have only Fall entry. Only those students who have completed post-secondary studies (i.e. college/university with a minimum of 2.0 transfer credits) may be considered for Winter or Summer entry. Entry point options are listed by program and specialization within the online application.
