Admission RequirementsAdmission to the BBA or iBBA program is based on two equally weighted criteria:
- Your academic performance
- Your supplementary application
The application process consists of two parts: your Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC) application, and your Schulich Supplementary Application. The OUAC application is now open for Fall 2017 admission, and the Supplementary Application will be available as of November 16, 2016. Both are described below in further detail.
