Taking the International Baccalaureat (IB) Diploma?

Early conditional admission

We may offer you early conditional admission if you have strong Grade 11 finals and/or interim Grade 12 results.

If you have a diagnosed disability

If you have a diagnosed physical, learning, or psychiatric disability, we strongly encourage you to identify yourself during the admissions process. Even if your circumstances don’t impact your admissibility to Glendon (in other words you meet our admission requirements), we want to make sure you know about the support services we have in place. In no way will identifying yourself be a disadvantage to you. More information >>

If you are home schooled

We have a detailed policy for admitting students who are home schooled.

Apply through the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC) for September, January, and May entry. If applying exclusively to York, you can also apply directly via the website.

What to send with your application:

Be sure to send all required documents as soon as you apply.

  1. Transcripts
    Please have your school fax your transcript to Admissions at 416-487-6813 by the deadline. Also have your official final results sent by mail when they become available. NOTE: Official transcripts must be sent to the Office of Admissions directly from the institution or delivered in an institutionally-sealed envelope (that remains unopened).
  2. Language test results (if required).

Please send all required documents to:

York University
Office of Admissions
Bennett Centre for Student Services
3rd Floor Reception
99 Ian Macdonald Blvd
Toronto, ON M3J 1P3
CANADA

Be sure to send your application before the application deadline.

What happens after you apply

After you apply to Glendon, we’ll keep in touch and you can connect with us at any time. You’ll receive an acknowledgement of your application and a reminder to send all outstanding documents on time.

You can check your application status throughout the process by logging on to MyFile. You’ll need your York reference number to log in.

Requesting a Deferral

A deferral is a postponement of your admission to York. York recognizes that after being newly admitted, some applicants encounter unique personal circumstances that represent legitimate reasons for requesting a deferral of admission to the next academic session.

Newly admitted first-year students for September entry may request a deferral through our Deferral Form. The University grants deferrals at its discretion, only in highly exceptional cases and on a restricted basis. All conditions must be satisfied before a deferral will be granted.

Offers of admission are conditional upon final grades.
