Optional Supplementary Documentation Forms

We recognize that non-academic factors play an important role in students' lives. The Student Profile Form (SPF) is your opportunity to tell the Admission Committee about activities that you have been involved in, and that have helped you develop leadership and citizenship qualities. We will also consider factors beyond your control that have negatively affected your academic performance, such as illness or personal problems. If your admission average in May does not meet the cut-off for the program to which you have applied, your SPF will be considered if your average falls within 5% of the determined cut-off.

If you are a Canadian Citizen or Permanent Resident, the online Student Profile Form must be submitted by May 1, 2023.

If you are an international student and/or 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, 2023.

See the Student Profile Form page for frequently asked questions.

Upon receipt of your application for admission to U of G, you may have been 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 which specifies what supporting documentation you are required to submit or if you see "Education Declaration Form" as a required document on your WebAdvisor account. If so, please complete the above PDF and submit it to applicant@uoguelph.ca
