Alternate Offers - what you need to know

Posted: Monday, March 18, 2019 - 09:35

Our second round of offers has officially started and will continue until mid-April. The second round is when we send out alternate offers.

What is an alternate offer?

  • If you don't currently meet the grade requirements for your first choice program, we may automatically consider you for an alternate program

I got an alternate offer. What does that mean for me?

  • There are 4 situations where you may receive an alternate offer (see below)
  • We will reconsider you for your first choice program in our third and final round of offers

You may receive an Alternate Offer if you applied to the following programs:

  • Biomedical Science – your alternate offer will be to the biological science major
  • Human Kinetics – your alternate offer will also be to the biological science major
  • Criminal Justice and Public Policy – your alternate offer will be to our bachelor of arts, general major
  • Co-op – your alternate offer will be to the non-co-op stream of the program you applied to

I got an alternate offer. Now what?

  1. You can wait for the final round of offers and see if you get admitted to your first choice program.
  2. 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 or apply to the co-op stream for the Winter Semester.
  3. You can accept your alternate offer and still be considered for your first choice in the final admission round

Three other things you need to know:

  1. If you haven't yet received an offer, COMPLETE a Student Profile Form by May 1, 2019!
  2. Check your OUAC account for an admission offer from U of G! Offers will show up there first, and then you can expect a congratulations package from us in the mail!
  3. Visit our Admission Plan webpage to find out how we send out offers.
