Categories of Admission

There are several ways to achieve your academic goals at York. Different categories of admission are described below. In order to be considered for admission, you must meet the prerequisite(s) and minimum average requirements of the program(s) to which you apply. Requirements vary by program and admission is not guaranteed. For details, visit http://www.yorku.ca/futurestudents/.

Undergraduate Degree

Individuals with appropriate preparation may apply for admission to an undergraduate degree program at York. Undergraduate direct-entry degrees include the Bachelor of Administrative Studies, Bachelor of Applied Science, Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Business Administration, International Bachelor of Business Administration, Bachelor of Design, Bachelor in Environmental Studies, Bachelor of Fine Arts, Bachelor of Health Studies, Bachelor of Human Resources Management and Bachelor of Science.

The Bachelor of Education and Bachelor of Laws require previous postsecondary studies.

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing and Bachelor of Social Work are offered as both direct-entry degree programs and ones which require previous postsecondary studies.

Joint Undergraduate Degree/Diploma

York students have the opportunity to combine a university degree program with a diploma/certificate program at a college of applied arts and technology in a variety of areas. Students can only apply in upper years and enrolment is very limited.

Undergraduate Certificates

Individuals with appropriate preparation may apply for admission to complete an undergraduate certificate. Certificate programs develop skills in specific fields or professional expertise. Certificates are normally completed at the same time as a degree program, although some certificates can be done on their own. Visit http://www.yorku.ca/futurestudents and click on Courses & Programs for details.

Visiting Student

York will consider for admission individuals who wish to take credit courses, but who do not intend to complete a degree or a certificate at York. Visiting students are individuals who already hold an undergraduate degree or are currently attending another recognized university and wish to take York courses on a letter of permission issued by their home institution.

Provisional Student

In very exceptional circumstances, York will admit an individual on a provisional basis, for a maximum of one academic year (normally in anticipation of admission as a degree candidate). Provisional status is granted at the discretion of the University and on the basis of compelling evidence of an applicant's ability to complete the requirements for a degree or certificate.
