The minimum required average varies from year to year based upon the number of applicants and the caliber of grades presented. Typically successful candidates to the Faculty have grades ranging (all ranges stated to a maximum of 100%):

High 80's to Low 90's Engineering Science
Mid to High 80's General First Year and Mechanical Engineering
Low to Mid 80's Chemical, Industrial, Civil, Computer, Electrical, Materials and Mineral






Please note that these are the recommended averages and do not guarantee admissions into the program. The Admissions Committee takes a look at the overall academic history and Student Profile Form of each candidate before making an admissions decision.

While we do not discourage applicants from repeating courses, it is the policy of the University of Toronto Engineering Admissions Committee to consider only first attempt marks. The Admissions Committee in general does not consider repeated course marks. However, they will consider any extenuating circumstances that perhaps had a negative effect on academic performance. You will need to provide documentation to explain how the circumstance affected your academic history with a specific timeline. Please note that if the circumstance is medical in nature, official medical documentation must be provided as well.

We believe that marks alone do not provide a complete picture of your potential. The Student Profile Form (SPF) gives you the opportunity to tell the Admissions Committee about your abilities, strengths and interests. In particular, we are interested in your activities and achievements that demonstrate leadership, dedication and overall excellence. The SPF is a mandatory part of your application. If you do not submit your complete SPF, your application will not be considered for admission. The SPF will be available on the Engineering Applicant Portal once the Faculty has received your application from the Ontario Universities' Application Centre (OUAC).
