Undergraduate Admissions and Recruitment



Are programs still accepting applications? 

Yes! Many of our programs are still actively accepting applications. You can check the status of any undergraduate program online. Please keep in mind that the Guaranteed Consideration deadline for all programs has passed. This means that programs are subject to close at any time, so be sure to apply as soon as possible.

How do I apply? 

The How to Apply page of our website provides all the information you need regarding the application process. We have two different types of programs at Ryerson; Grades-Only and Grades-Plus. Grades-Only programs assess based solely on academic performance, wheres Grades-Plus programs will also require Non-Academic Requirements. If you are thinking of applying to a Grade-Plus program all Non-Academic Requirements must be submitted and arrive at the university 10 business days after the day you apply. Ensure you know what is required for your application, and never hesitate to contact us for assistance. You can also check out our handy How-To videos online!
