Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) Admission Requirements
Admission to the BBA 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. You can apply via OUAC as soon as you have received your OUAC pin code.
The Schulich School of Business receives thousands of applications each year for several hundred spaces. To be competitive, applicants should aim for a high 80s/low 90s average.
Academic Requirements: Direct Entry Applicants
To be eligible for admission, Ontario high school applicants must complete *ENG4U, *MHF4U, and MCV4U or MDM4U as part of their top six grade 12 courses.
*A minimum of 70% in ENG4U and MHF4U is required. No more than two 4M courses will be considered for admission.

Academic Requirements: York Delayed Entry Applicants
Please note, due to Schulich’s small program size, we are not able to accept applications from transfer students currently studying outside of York. If you are interested in transferring to a different business program at York, please view York’s eligible programs.
Current York students who have completed the required prerequisite courses may be considered for admission to Year 2 of the BBA program. Complete requirements and prerequisite course information, as well as the application packages, are available below:
The supplementary application is used to provide the admissions team with a better understanding of the complete student. While academic performance is important, Schulich is looking for well-rounded students who can also demonstrate leadership potential, teamwork experience, resilience, and empathy towards others.
To be considered for admission, applicants must apply through the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC) and complete a supplementary application.
