Details

Admission Requirements: Seneca students will be considered for admission to undergraduate degree studies at York with successful completion of a minimum of two full semesters of academic study in an academic program. A minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of a 3.0 on a 4-point scale including all attempted courses is required. These are minimum requirements only. Some programs will require a higher average for admission, or supplementary application requirements and specific high school senior level prerequisites. Students must also meet York's language proficiency requirements and program prerequisites if required. All previous academic studies will be considered including courses completed at another college or university. While we offer guidelines as to how much transfer credit may be expected for the programs outlined below, transfer credit is assessed on an individual basis only after an admissions decision is made. The amount of transfer credit a student receives is dependent on individual course grades, the academic content, length of program completed and prior postsecondary studies (if applicable). How these credits are applied toward a student's degree at York will vary by program.

Students presenting an unfavourable academic record from an accredited post-secondary institution may have transfer credit restrictions imposed. This will be reviewed on an individual basis by the Faculty to which a student has applied. Visit http://futurestudents.yorku.ca/transfercredit for answers to frequently asked questions about transfer credit.
