The minimum Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) for Program admission is calculated for each application period, and is based on University of Toronto courses only. Decisions are made when all grades have been received.

Students must have completed the following courses (or their equivalent): MGTA01H3, MGTA02H3, MGEA02H3, MGEA06H3, MATA32H3, and MATA33H3.

Of the total credits that students have completed when they apply, at least 4.0 credits just in University of Toronto courses that have been graded (i.e., not designated as CR/NCR). Students may apply until they have completed up to 10.0 credits. Students who have completed more than 10.0 credits will not be considered for admission to the Program.

In order to remain in the Program, students must maintain a CGPA of 2.0 or higher after having attempted at least 4.0 credits. Students whose CGPA falls below 2.0 will be removed from the Program. Students removed from the program for this reason may request re-instatement if they complete at least 2.0 credits (none of which can be designated as CR/NCR) in the following session and raise their CGPA to at least 2.0.
