International
Admission Requirements

Huron has one of the highest entering admission averages among Canadian institutions. Not only do we admit students that are top of their class academically, but students that take initiative to better their communities and demonstrate their commitment to being a Leader with Heart. Through the application process, students are able to show their contributions outside of the classroom, in addition to their academic record.

Our Admissions Team work one-on-one with our applicants throughout the entire application process. Please don’t hesitate to email or book a virtual counselling appointment with us if you’d like personalized assistance with any aspect of the application process.

Huron follows a Round-Style Admissions system for international students applying from outside of Canada. The date by which you will receive an Admission Decision, as well as the amount of Entrance Scholarship you may receive, will depend on which Round you apply in. Every year, Huron receives significantly more applications than spots available; applying in earlier rounds maximizes your potential to gain admission with scholarships.

Please note, that the scholarship amounts stated above refer to the Entrance Scholarships only (which are awarded based on your Personal Statement and Academic Results). Students who apply in Round 1 or Round 2 will still be eligible to apply for other additional scholarships such as the International Presidential Scholarship, and other scholarships listed on this page as long as the required applications are completed and submitted prior to each scholarship’s respective deadline.

If you have any questions about application dates and deadlines, please don’t hesitate to connect with your Huron International Admissions Advisor using the contact information below.

International University Transfer

Individuals applying as transfer students must have achieved a minimum overall average of 70% in all previous university studies at an accredited degree-granting institution and have experienced no extensive academic difficulty to be considered for admission.

If you are attending university and are in first-year, a conditional admissions decision may be made based on strong first year, first semester results and a strong final secondary school average. If you are in second year or higher, you will be considered for conditional admission on the basis of a mid-year transcript.

Post-secondary transcripts from any and all post-secondary institutions attended are required.  Academic transcripts must be submitted directly to Huron from the institution(s) attended. If your documents are issued in a language other than English, you must also provide notarized literal English translations.

Transfer credit may be granted for courses completed at another accredited university with a minimum mark of 60% (in the context of Huron’s grading scale) in each course to be transferred. These courses must be recognized as covering an acceptable amount of subject matter and meet the academic standards of Huron.

The Admissions Office and the Chair of the program to which the student has been admitted shall have sole jurisdiction over the granting of transfer credit.

Note:

  • Credits granted may be either generic/non-specific credits or exact equivalency credits.
  • Courses from universities outside of North America must be individually assessed to determine if they are eligible for transfer credit.
  • Official course descriptions or syllabi including credit hours, year level of study and description of course content including text(s) used will be required to assess your credits for transfer. A copy of both the original and a certified copy of the English translation (where applicable) is required.
  • Courses from a recognized accredited international university will be eligible for transfer subject to degree, grade and program requirements when there is an essential equivalency in course content.
