How to apply​

Prospective students must submit an undergraduate application with the following documents: 

  • SAT1 results  
  • High school transcript for grades 10 and 11 or their equivalent 


Admission is competitive and based on the results of SAT1 and high school transcript as follows: 

  • 50% on the SAT1: (Evidence-Based Reading and Writing + Math) sections 
  • 50% on the standardized high school averages in grades 10 and 11 

SAT1 can be taken several times. Students can benefit from superscoring. (i.e., taking the maximum score for each section from all sessions).

In terms of standardized high school averages, students are compared to their class average and to the average of applicants from the same school.  

There are no specific cut-off scores. The higher the student's score, the better the chances of being admitted. 

The non-refundable application fee is $XX.
