Current McMaster students will receive the information at their McMaster email address; applicants from other universities will receive the instructions to the email you provide on your OUAC application.

Once you receive the email in early May to access the online supplementary application you will have a window to complete the system check, and to submit the online application.

  • Each question has a limit of 1,500 characters which includes punctuation and spaces.
  • We do not accept any additional documentation (e.g. resume, extra-curriculars, etc).
  • The supplementary application must be completed entirely by you. Posting your answers on the internet, whether draft or final, or working with others to prepare your responses is not permitted and may result in removal from the applicant pool.
  • The BHSc office does not provide guidance in how you should respond to the questions.
