You can apply to the Lassonde School of Engineering through the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC) website or you may use York University’s online application.

Use the OUAC application if you are:

  • Current Ontario high school student, or
  • Currently reside in Canada and not currently in an Ontario high school day program, or
  • Canadian citizen/permanent resident residing elsewhere and not attending an Ontario high school, or
  • International applicant (not a Canadian citizen/PR, not residing in Canada and not in Ontario high school)

Use York University’s online application if you are:

  • Previous York student, or
  • Mature or university/college transfer applicant and you’re only applying to York.

Applying to one of our Engineering programs?

Since we offer a common first-year, our engineering programs are merged into a single selection on the OUAC application form Engineering (BEng) – including Co-op.

In your OUAC application you will indicate your top choice by selecting one with the ‘Subject of Major Interest’ pulldown menu. If you choose to complete a Boost co-application, you will have the chance to provide up to 2 additional program choices.

You want to explore your passion – we want to help you get there.

And while having good grades usually means you have the academic chops to do well in your classes, it’s your passion for science, technology & engineering that will help you succeed.

That’s why we created Boost, an optional co-application to our School.

Through a digital interview, you’ll get the chance to tell us who you really are and demonstrate to us that you possess the traits of a future Renaissance Engineer – creativity, passion, ingenuity, rational thinking and confidence.

Completing your Boost Profile will help you elevate your application and launch you above the competition.

 

If you’re an engineering applicant you’ll also have the chance to provide backup options, in the case that you do not receive an offer to your top engineering program choice.
