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.

More details can be found on the Student Profile Form (SPF) page.

Submit the SPF
