Academic Performance

The Schulich School of Business receives thousands of applications each year for several hundred spaces. To be competitive, Ontario high school 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 the following as part of their top six grade 12 courses:

  • ENG4U*
  • MHF4U*
  • MCV4U or MDM4U

*A minimum of 70% in ENG4U and MHF4U is required. No more than two 4M courses will be considered for admission.

Note that meeting minimum admission requirements does not guarantee admission. For more information please visit our Undergraduate Admissions FAQ page.

Applicants from high schools outside of Ontario will have differing admission criteria based on their curriculum. Before applying, please review York’s Admission Requirement to determine the requirements for your province/country/curriculum.

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:
