Competitive Programs (Oversubscribed Programs)

In some programs, Mohawk receives more qualified applicants than can be accommodated. Selection will be based on:

  1. Equal consideration date After equal consideration date, applications are considered on a first-come, first-served basis, providing there are still vacancies in the program(s) of your choice.
  2. Ranking of grades in required subjects
  3. Additional criteria such as portfolios, questionnaires and information sessions may be required

Competitive programs have more applicants than there are spaces available. You must apply for these programs before the equal consideration date to be eligible for the first round of offers — see important dates above. Late applications will be considered pending space in the program.

Selection to competitive programs is based on the average of your highest senior level final grades in the required courses. Additional selection criteria may be applied for some programs. Possession of the minimum admission requirements does not guarantee admission to the program. Priority is also given to applicants in the following order:

  1. Permanent residents of Ontario
  2. Permanent residents of other Canadian provinces or territories
  3. International applicants
