The second round of offers will be rolling out SOON and so we decided to address some of the most-asked questions currently coming in from you Future Gryphons.

Here they are:

What is the "exact" cut-off average for my program?

We list estimated cutoff ranges, which factor in what averages have typically been in previous years. Keep in mind that the "estimated range" is just that – an estimate. Admission averages are determined each year by the number and quality of applicants, as well as space availability within the program. Please note that it is not our practice to release exact admission averages.

How many people are admitted to my program?

If your admission average falls within our range, your application will be fully considered. The number of students admitted into each program varies from year to year.

How do I accept my offer?

You accept your offer through the OUAC. There is also a tutorial offered through the OUAC that students can access for support and assistance.

How do I defer my admission?

You can apply to defer your admission by emailing your request to The deadline for completion of this process is August 14, 2020 and the cost of the deferral is $80. For additional information on how to defer an offer, visit our website.

NOTE: Only high school applicants can defer. Students admitted to BLA cannot defer.

I applied to co-op, but I was admitted to the regular program. How do I get co-op?

Your application for co-op will be considered again in the May round of offers. However, if we are still unable to offer you admission to co-op and you accept admission to the regular stream of the program, you will have another opportunity to apply for co-op when you are in your first year at Guelph. You can contact Co-operative Education & Career Services for more information.

Is there anything more I can do to be considered for admission?

First, continue to study hard as grades are the first and main factor considered for admission. In our third round of offers, we will also consider your Student Profile Form if you submitted one. The deadline for submission of the SPF is May 1, 2020 and we encourage you to fill it out if you have not yet received an offer of admission.

If you have any other questions you can find more information on our Admissions website or follow us on social media and ask your questions during one of our chats!

If you don't have an offer yet just keep working hard, maintain those grades, and fill out that Student Profile Form Future Gryphon!
