Level I BHSc (Honours) Supplementary Application for 2019

The Level I BHSc Supplementary Application is used by High School Applicants.

Questions are now available for you to review in advance.  We recommend that you draft your responses in preparation for submitting the on-line application when it becomes available.

The questions will not necessarily be presented in this order when you log in to the online supplementary application system.

The on-line system will be available in early February, at which time you will receive an email with additional instructions and your username/password needed to access the on-line supplementary application.  The email will be sent to the email address you provided on your OUAC application.

Once you receive the email in February, you will have a five (5) day window in which to complete the System Check and another four (4) day window to submit the on-line application.  Each applicant will be assigned an appointment window in which they can access the online application within a 2 week period in February; the exact dates will be included in the email.  If you do not submit the on-line application by the deadline date stated in the email that you receive from us, you will not be considered for this program.

Important things to keep in mind;

  • Each question has a limit of 1,500 characters which includes punctuation and spaces.
  • We do not accept any additional documentation (i.e. resume, extra-curricular activities).
  • The supplementary application must be completed entirely by you.  Posting your answers on the internet, whether draft of 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.

Please refer to updates on the BHSc website.  We will post an update on the website in mid-February once we distribute the email with your username/password to access the on-line supplementary application.

If you have any other questions that are not already covered, please contact the BHSc office at (905) 525-9140 ext. 22815 or ext. 26564 for assistance.
