Posted on Wednesday, March 9th, 2016

1. If you applied to Biomedical Science or Human Kinetics…

…and are not admissible in this round of offers, you may receive an alternate offer to Biological Science.

What does that mean?

It means, right now with the grade information we have, we are not able to offer you admission to your first choice of Biomedical Science or Human Kinetics.

But, we will continue to consider you for your first choice throughout the next rounds of offers (they run until May).

What can you do?

  1. You can wait for the subsequent rounds of offers and see if you get admitted to your first choice of Biomedical Science or Human Kinetics.
  2. You can accept your current offer of admission to the alternate program, knowing that we will continue to consider your first choice program in our subsequent rounds of offers.
  3. If you are not admitted to your first choice you can accept your alternate offer and then  work with your program counsellor once you are a student here (in the fall) to switch to another major within the Bachelor of Science – you have so many choices – take a look!
  4. Don’t worry, changing your major in the fall will not affect how you choose your courses (Course Selection takes place May – July) because all first year Bachelor of Science students have to take the core science courses.

2. If you applied to Criminal Justice and Public Policy…

…and are not admissible in this round of offers, you may receive an alternate offer to Bachelor of Arts, General Arts.

What does that mean?

It means, right now with the grade information we have, we are not able to offer you admission to your first choice of Criminal Justice and Public Policy.

3. If you applied to co-op…

…and are not admissible in this round of offers, you may receive an alternate offer to the regular stream.

What does that mean?
