Exceptions

Students on Co-op or Exchange

Most undergraduate students who earn scholarships and other merit-based awards are required to meet minimum credit load and academic performance criteria, according to the regulations governing university awards. However, if you are on a Co-op or Exchange term or in your final year of study, please refer to the special circumstances for students receiving awards, or contact your Enrolment Services Advisor directly for more information.

Post-baccalaureate programs

If you're in a post-baccalaureate program such as Medicine, Dentistry, Law, or Education (with the exception of NITEP), you will not be eligible. You may qualify for substantial faculty-recommended scholarships. Contact your faculty’s scholarship representative or check your faculty website to find out more.
