General Admission Requirements
To be considered for admission as an Ontario High School student, you must be currently attending a high school in Ontario on a full-time basis or have recently graduated, and have not completed any post-secondary studies at another institution.
To meet the General Admission Requirements to Lakehead, you will need the following:
- Completion of the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD);
- A minimum of 6 Grade 12U or M courses, or equivalent, including program specific prerequisite courses;
- A minimum 70%* overall final average**
*Higher averages may be required for admission to programs in which the demand for places by qualified applicants exceeds the supply of available spaces.
**Admission averages are calculated using the top 6 Grade 12 U or M courses.
Note: Should your academic background not reflect your true potential for success, the Academic Support Access Program acts as an entryway for students whose academic average falls slightly below the required admission average. Applicants are automatically considered for admission to the Academic Support Access Program, subject to program eligibility.
