First Year

The Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) or equivalent including a minimum of six 4U or M courses.

Advanced Standing

Applications for admission with advanced standing to the program will be evaluated individually by the Program Management Committee. Advanced standing will be granted only for those courses deemed to be appropriate to the program. On admission, students will not receive credit for courses graded below C-.

Continuation to second year will be guaranteed only to those students who have an overall CGPA of 7.00 or higher and a grade of B- or higher in PAPM 1000.

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/or prerequisite course average. These averages may be higher than the stated minimum requirements;
    2. be registered as a full-time student in the B.P.A.P.M. 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 may limit enrolment in the co-op option.

2. Continuation Requirements for Students Previously Admitted to the Co-op Option and Admission to the Co-op option after beginning the program

Eligibility will be determined for all B.P.A.P.M. co-op students on the basis of the CGPA at the beginning of the term preceding the first co-op placement.

Students must:

    1. be registered as a full-time in the B.P.A.P.M. program;
    2. have obtained an overall CGPA of 9.00 or higher calculated on at least 5.0 credits;
    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 may limit enrolment in the co-op option. Students should also note that hiring priority is given to Canadian citizens for co-op positions in the Public Service Commission.
