Congratulations on your offer of admission!
The next steps towards becoming a York Science student are to accept your offer of admission and book your enrolment appointment through MyFile.
In the Faculty of Science, newly admitted students are required to attend an enrolment appointment before enrolling into courses. At the enrolment appointment, you will meet one-on-one with an Academic Advisor. The advisor will work with you to develop a customized course plan and schedule. S/he will learn more about you, and taking into account your academic performance to date and your future career goals, will make recommendations about what courses to take in first year, any remedial course requirements, how to balance your course load, course sequencing, etc.
If you live outside of the Greater Toronto Area, our Advising Team will develop a course plan for you and then review it with you via skype or telephone.
I was supposed to have an on-campus enrolment appointment but I heard the campus is closed -- how will I be advised?
Due to the current circumstances in Toronto, our on-campus appointments are now video conference appointments. At least five business days prior to your enrolment appointment you will receive a Zoom invite. Zoom is a video conferencing service you can use to virtually meet with others. It allows individuals to virtually meet by video or audio or both and includes functionality to allow live chats. Zoom at YorkU (https://yorku.zoom.us/ ) unifies cloud video conferencing for simple meetings or advising appointments, study groups and online learning into one easy-to-use platform.
- To prepare for your appointment, please complete the following:
- If you have not already done so, accept your offer online through MyFile (http://www.yorku.ca/myfile).
- Create your York Passport Account (https://science.yorku.ca/current-students/procedures/new-students/step-2-passport-account/)
- Complete your Math Assessment (https://science.yorku.ca/current-students/procedures/new-students/mathematics-quiz/)
- Visit https://lthelp.yorku.ca/94581-zoom/connecting-to-a-zoom-meeting-for-students to learn how to navigate Zoom for the first time
For detailed instructions on how to complete these tasks, visit the Faculty of Science New Student website (https://science.yorku.ca/current-students/procedures/new-students/).
After consulting with the government and public health authorities, as well as Senate Executive, we have determined that our Fall term will be delivered for the most part online and remotely.
We are committed to ensuring students are able to access the courses they need to progress in their programs, so York University will be offering our full selection of academic programming this Fall. Because of advance planning on the part of our community, we will maintain the same high-quality learning experience for which York is known, due to the work of course directors to develop innovative ways to enhance online instruction including adding virtual experiential activities and opportunities for students to engage with each other online.
We believe that it will also be possible to offer select experiential activities that are not easily adaptable to a remote delivery format such as labs, studios, and clinical placements, in-person. As we appreciate that some students may not be available to attend campuses in the Fall, students will be informed in advance of the start of the course if there are any required in-person components, and what flexibility they will have to fulfill those requirements over the term. Some students may prefer to delay such courses until a subsequent term.
Yes – the admissions team continues to process applications and make offers of admission. Decisions are based on documents uploaded to your MyFile account and/or submitted directly by your institution.
We also understand that some students require additional flexibility in meeting deadlines as a result of disruptions to schooling or exams due to COVID-19. York is committed to working with any students who may need extra time in order to complete their application.
I will not be able to submit my documents by the required deadline. Will I lose my offer of admission?
As a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be flexible with our document submission deadlines to accommodate the needs of our incoming students. If you have specific questions or concerns about your deadline(s), please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for clarification
You are expected to maintain your final grades according to the program requirements. If your grades have fallen below the minimum requirement for admission, please contact the Office of Admission.
Admitted students who do not meet the conditions of their admission may have their offer revoked. Make sure that you meet the admission conditions outlined in your offer of admission letter. We reserve the right to withdraw your offer of admission if:
- You do not maintain your admission average;
- You do not meet the conditions mentioned in your Offer of Admission letter;
- You do not confirm your acceptance by the deadline stated in your Offer of Admission letter; and
- You do not book your enrolment appointment by the deadline stated in your Offer of Admission letter.
As long as you maintain your overall admission average your offer should be not be revoked. You can take re-take prerequisite in summer school or enrol in one the preparatory courses during your first year at York. You can discuss your options with your Academic Advisor at your enrolment appointment.
Yes, you may defer to the next session provided that the program is admitting for that session and as long as there is space in the program and you maintain your overall average. You will not be able to defer your offer of admission if all the conditions on your file have not been met.

Once you have submitted your application, you will receive an email containing your York reference number. You can then track the progress of your application and submit the required supporting documents at MyFile. It is your responsibility to ensure York receives all the required supporting documentation and that it is received before the deadline date.
The Office of Admissions, York University, sends official communication about application and admission via email. It is important that you open, read and take action (if required) upon receipt of an email.
- It may take 6-8 weeks to process your application.
- The processing period begins after all documents related to your application are received. Supporting documentation such as transcripts, course descriptions and language proficiency test scores (if applicable) must be sent directly to the Office of Admissions at York University.
- If any required document is not received, your application will not be processed.
To book your enrolment appointment log into your MyFile account and select “Book/manage my enrolment appointment” from there you will be able to choose from a selection of dates and times. We recommend that you book and attend the earliest available appointment, as courses fill on a first-come first-registered basis, meaning the earlier you enrol the more likely you are to get your preferred timetable.
There are several steps you can take to prepare for your enrolment appointment, please visit this website to find out more about how you can prepare for your enrolment appointment.
No, it won’t affect your admission to York. The math quiz results help us advise you which mathematics courses to take, which areas of mathematics you should revise, and even if you should participate in mathematics tutorials aimed at better preparing you for university studies. You must complete the assessment before your advising appointment.
As soon as you are offered admission to York, the Office of Admissions will begin assessing your previous postsecondary studies for transfer credit eligibility. Wait times for transfer assessment completion vary depending on the time of year. The earlier you accept your offer, the earlier you will receive your transfer credit statement.
The Office of Admissions determines the amount of transfer credit you are eligible to receive based on the following factors:
- The type of institution from which you are transferring: Ontario College, Canadian University, International Institution, Advanced Secondary Institution;
- whether the courses you have taken are transferable (academically equivalent to York courses) or not;
- the number of courses you have completed
- grades achieved; and
- how your previous postsecondary studies fit with the program you’ve been admitted to at York.
