13 University Admissions with my IB Diploma Students apply in January of their Grade 12 year (Ontario) and as early as November to some International Schools Students apply in January of their Grade 12 year (Ontario) and as early as November to some International Schools Students benefit by having both sets of credentials to be accepted into their programs Students benefit by having both sets of credentials to be accepted into their programs Ontario Grades IB Grades OUAC (Ontario University Application Centre) and Out- of-Province Universities

14 Criteria for University Admission OSSD- Students require 6 Grade 12 University or University/College courses OSSD- Students require 6 Grade 12 University or University/College courses –Programs will insist on certain prerequisite courses as part of the 6 (ie. Biology 12 for Life Science) –Minimum average will vary each year IB – Students require the prerequisite IB course and a minimum overall score (ie.
