Conditional Offers Of Admission

Conditional Offers Of Admission

The University of Guelph continues to actively monitor reports on the evolving COVID-19 pandemic. As many regions around the world continue to be affected, we understand that you may be worried about your offer of admission. We know that you have questions about what to expect in the upcoming weeks, how we will deal with your offer conditions, and what to expect this fall. We will continue to answer your questions and will reach out with specific information on how U of G can help you prepare for the start of your undergraduate career.

Schools and exam boards have begun to adjust their curriculums, evaluation and assessment methods. We want to assure you that we will accept these adjusted assessment methods in order to meet our conditions. If your school or exam provider cancels final exams or adjusts its usual grading practices, we will use the results reported by your school or exam provider in order to meet our conditions. As we receive information from our school and exam partners around the world, we will update our website to reflect any changes to your conditions of admission. Please check this space for updates on final offer conditions for students whose school year or exams have been disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

This page will continue to be updated as the situation evolves. Check back regularly and email us with any questions at
