Alternate Offers - what you need to know
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?
- You can wait for the final round of offers and see if you get admitted to your first choice program.
- 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.
- 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:
- If you haven't yet received an offer, COMPLETE a Student Profile Form by May 1, 2019!
- 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!
