     Program Changes:                  There are no program changes for fall 2012 entry, at this point in time.
       AdMIssION ANd TRANsITION INFORMATION
     Fall 2011 Offer Information:       Guelph’s offers of admission will be made prior to May 30, 2011, and students will have until June 2, 2011 to respond.
     Special Consideration Policy:     Admission Services will review Special Admission Consideration Form (SACF) submissions, with staff from the Centre for
                                       Students with Disabilities (CSD), in May. As with Student Profile Form (SPF) submissions, the SACF will be reviewed for
                                       applicants who have an admission average that falls within a discretionary range of the final cut-off for each program/major (up
                                       to 5%) should they not have otherwise received an offer by that point. More information regarding this process can be found on
                                       the CSD website at www.csd.uoguelph.ca/csd/high_school
     Alternate Offers of Admission:     Students can expect to receive only one offer of admission from Guelph. Their highest choice to Guelph would be considered
                                       first. Only in the event that a student is not admissible to their highest choice at Guelph would the next choice be considered.
                                       Students are therefore strongly advised to place their preferred program as their highest choice of Guelph programs. Students
                                       should have made these changes by April 1, 2011.
                                       Applicants not admitted to a co-op program based on admission average are automatically considered for admission to the
                                       regular program. Applicants not admitted to BA – Criminal Justice & Public Policy, or Studio Art are automatically considered for
                                       admission to BA – Major to be Determined. Applicants not admitted to BSc – Bio-Medical Science are automatically considered
                                       for admission to BSc – Biological Science.
     Grade 11 Marks:                   Grade 11 U/M marks are used in admission average calculation for our early offers of admission.
     Supplemental Application:         Guelph has several programs that require supplemental application forms to be completed. Students may also complete a
                                       Student Profile Form (SPF) in support of their application. For all forms, please visit: admission.uoguelph.ca/forms
     Deferral Policy:                  Students are able to defer offers of admission at the University of Guelph for one year, as long as another postsecondary
                                       institution is not attended during that time. An application is required by August 12, 2011, and can be obtained by emailing
                                       admission@registrar.uoguelph.ca. Students will incur a $60 deferral fee.
     IB Policy:                        Admission and scholarships will be determined using the conversions submitted to the OUAC by the applicant’s secondary
                                       school. Transfer credit may be given for higher level courses with grades of 5 or better, to a maximum of 2.0 credits; credit will
                                       be assessed once final transcripts are received.
     AP Policy:                        Applicants who have completed AP examinations with a minimum grade of 4 will be eligible to receive university credit, to a
                                       maximum of 2.0 credits. Transfer credit is dependent on the program to which a student applied and will be assigned once an
                                       official College Board AP transcript is received.
     Policy on Repeated Courses:       For the fall 2011 admission cycle, Guelph is using the highest U or M grade reported for any repeated courses, as long as the
                                       course has been taken at a Ministry inspected and approved school.

     Engineering Expansion:               The School of Engineering is continuing with its ambitious expansion strategy that will see a doubling in student enrollment and
                                          faculty in the coming years. The growth is originating from three key areas: recently introduced Mechanical, Biomedical and

     ADMISSIONS AND TRANSITION INFORMATION
      Fall 2011 Offer Information:   Offers of admission will be made to qualified applicants based on their top six 4U/M courses including all
                                     required courses. Averages are calculated to two decimal points and are not rounded up. All applicants
                                     will be informed of a decision no later than May 30, 2011.
          Special Consideration      Students with extenuating circumstances may forward documentation to the Admissions Office.
                        Policy:      Extenuating circumstances may be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
             Alternate Offers of     McMaster does not make automatic alternate offers of admission for any program. We encourage
                    Admission:       applicants to apply to up to three programs as we will consider each program choice simultaneously and
                                     will communicate an admission decision for each program they select on OUAC.
              Grade 11 Marks:        McMaster may make select offers of admission to highly qualified applicants based on Grade 11 grades.
      Supplemental Application:      Four direct-entry programs at McMaster require the submission of a mandatory supplementary application
                                     for admission consideration: Arts & Science Program; Bachelor of Health Sciences (Honours) Program;
                                     Integrated Science Program; Midwifery Program.
                 Deferral Policy:    Students may submit a written request to have their offer deferred for a period of one year. Requests are
                                     reviewed on a case-by-case basis by the specific faculty. Normally, decisions on deferrals are not made
                                     until late August upon receipt of final grades. Should a deferral be granted, the student may not attend
                                     any educational institution (including secondary school) for the deferral period, and must re-apply via the
                                     OUAC the following year.
                       IB Policy:    Students may present a full IB diploma or a combination of IB courses (certificate) and 4U/Ms (or
                                     equivalent). For the purposes of both admission and residence single-bed guarantee, applicants who

  WHAT’S NEW?

  OCAD University is pleased to announce the addition of the Inclusive Design Research Centre (IDRC) and the Inclusive
  Design Institute (IDI) to our community. The IDRC/IDI re-imagines digital tools, systems, and practices for human
  diversity and inclusion and deal with complex problems of collaborating and participating with our full spectrum of
  differences. Whether an artist or a designer, these principles can be an integral part of studies at OCAD U.

  OCAD U is in the process of developing a south campus, which currently consists of 205 Richmond Street west where
  our Graduate Studies, the IDRC/IDI, Development and Alumni Relations, Marketing and Communications, and Drawing
  and Painting thesis studios are located. The south campus also includes two buildings at 230 and 240 Richmond Street
  West. Admissions and Recruitment moved to this new location along with our Visual Resources Department/Archives.
  The buildings will continue to be renovated and retrofitted for new offices and programs as we expand what is available.

  Students entering in Fall 2011 will have a much broader choice of courses and majors to choose from. The Digital
  Futures: Technology, Innovation, Art, Design program will allow students to graduate with a Bachelor of Fine Arts or a
  Bachelor of Design with a specialization in digital media and related technologies. Specializations: Physical, Tangible
  and Embedded Interactions; Performance, Games and Screen Media; Data Visualization: Data, Computation and
  Aesthetic Design; Inclusive design: Technological Practices for Health and Wellness; Business: Foresight and
  Innovation.

                      ideas start here
                      In 1984, a fourth-year Waterloo Engineering student founded his own
                      company. There’s nothing too unusual about that – the University of Waterloo
                      is a hotbed of entrepreneurship.
                      What is remarkable is the company he founded: Research in Motion (RIM),
                      maker of the BlackBerry® smartphone. RIM has become one of Canada’s most
                      successful companies and a strong supporter of Waterloo’s co-op program.
                      With the world’s largest co-op program and with a unique intellectual
                      property policy that allows researchers to own their inventions, Waterloo has
                      earned a reputation as Canada’s most innovative university – where ideas
                      come to life.

 The Sexuality, Marriage and Family Studies (SMF) program has become a full department at St. Jerome’s University. SMF addresses human
 interactions within relational and sexual contexts. It examines not only basic anatomical knowledge and sexual health, but also the formation
 and maintenance of relationships, parental skills, and the impact of culture on sexual and family-related values, ideas and attitudes.
 Beyond Borders is an international learning program at St. Jerome’s University with a mandate to develop students’ leadership abilities while
 also increasing their awareness of local and global concerns related to poverty, marginalization, health, environment, and oppression. In
 collaboration with local and international partners students apply their academic training towards good global stewardship, social justice and
 solidarity with marginalized peoples around the world.
 Residence Service Learning Project in Peru aims to help students living in residence build a connection with the developing world through
 a two-week travel experience in Peru. The experience focuses on providing students with an opportunity to experience the world outside of
 the classroom while giving them tangible skills. Students work with coffee growers in Peru to build a better understanding of common global
 needs and interests that are just and fair. As a sign of their commitment to and solidarity with the developing world, SJU provides the fair trade
 Café Feminino blend of coffee that is produced in the area the students travel to and work in each summer.
