Admission Requirements


Completion of first-year requirements with no failures. Students must have an average of at least 70% in 3.0 principal courses, including:

0.5 course: Calculus 1000A/B, Calculus 1500A/B or the former Calculus 1100A/B;

0.5 course: (Calculus 1501A/B (recommended)) or (Calculus 1301A/B with a mark of at least 85%);

plus 2.0 additional courses, with no mark in these principal courses below 60%. Mathematics 1600A/B, and Mathematics 1120A/B, if taken in first year, will count toward the 3.0 principal courses.

Mathematics 1120A/B and Mathematics 1600A/B are recommended.

Note:
Mathematics 1600A/B must be completed prior to Mathematics 2120A/B.
