2. Self-identified Aboriginal applicants who meet or exceed the minimum requirements will be given priority for up to 20% of the first-year seats for the program.

3. Admission will be offered to the applicants with the highest GPA in the four specific admission prerequisite courses. In the event of a tie, these courses will be weighted in the following priority: English, Biology, Math and Chemistry.

4. University transferable courses in English, Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics (not statistics) can be used in lieu of the respective high school courses required for admission.
