Admission Requirements

First Year

The Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) or equivalent including a minimum of six 4U or M courses. The six 4U or M courses must include one of Advanced Functions or Calculus and Vectors. Equivalent courses may be substituted between the old and new Ontario mathematics curriculum.

Advanced Standing

Applications for admission beyond first year will be assessed on their individual merits. Advanced standing will be granted only for those subjects assessed as being appropriate for the program and the stream selected.

Co-op Option

1. Direct Admission to the First Year of the Co-op Option

Applicants must:

    1. meet the required overall admission cut-off average and prerequisite course average. These averages may be higher than the stated minimum requirements;
    2. be registered as a full-time student in the Bachelor of Computer Science program;
    3. be eligible to work in Canada (for off-campus work placements).

Meeting the above requirements only establishes eligibility for admission to the program. The prevailing job market (and thus the availability of co-op placement) may limit enrolment in the co-op option.

2. Continuation Requirements and Eligibility for Placement in the First Work Term of the Co-op Option for all Previously Admitted Students and Admission to the Co-op Option after starting the program (normally in the second year)

To be eligible for placement in the first work term of the Co-op Option a student must meet the following requirements by the end of the term preceding the first job placement process:

    1. have a major CGPA of 8.00 or higher and an overall CGPA of 8.00 or higher;
    2. have successfully completed 3.0 required credits in Computer Science, including one of COMP 2402 or COMP 2404;
    3. be registered as a full-time student in the Bachelor of Computer Science program;
    4. be eligible to work in Canada (for off-campus work placements).

Meeting these requirements only establishes eligibility for admission to the Co-op program. Enrolment in the Co-operative Option is limited.

In addition, students whose first language is not English who are admitted to Carleton based on CAEL, IELTS, TOEFL or MELAB assessments are also required to take the Spoken English Test for Co-op students and attain a minimum score of 5.0.
