All students in the first-year Commerce stream are admitted into first year with a guaranteed place in the Rotman Commerce program beginning in second year, provided they meet the following Guaranteed Admission (GA) requirements by the end of the Summer session (i.e., August).
- Complete RSM100H1, Introduction to Management, with a mark of at least 67%.
- Complete ECO101H1, Principles of Microeconomics, and ECO102H1, Principles of Macroeconomics, each with a mark of at least 63%. Students must obtain a grade of at least 63% in each of these two courses, and are not able to average out the marks between the two. Note that ECO101H is a prerequisite for ECO102H.
- Complete MAT133Y1, Calculus and Linear Algebra for Commerce with a mark of at least 63%, OR MAT135H1 with a final mark of at least 60% AND MAT136H1 with a final mark of at least 60%, OR MAT137Y1 with a final mark of at least 55%, OR MAT157Y1 with a final mark of at least 55%.
- Accumulate a minimum of 4.0 credits.
None of the required courses may be completed using the CR/NCR option.
If you fail to meet any of the requirements, you will lose your Guaranteed Admission status. You may repeat a passed course one time only as an extra credit.
If you have any questions or concerns about meeting your GA requirements or if you have extenuating circumstances that prevent you from meeting the requirements by the end of your first year, you should make an appointment with a Rotman Commerce academic advisor to discuss your situation.
In exceptional circumstances, you may submit a request for an extension to your GA requirements. Requests must be received no later than August 31 of your first year.
To make the most of your academic experience, we encourage you to keep on top of your workload for each course. If you find yourself having trouble with class requirements, seek advising and a referral for extra help from the various resources on campus as soon as possible.
If you have been admitted to part-time study, your Guaranteed Admission will be assessed once you have completed 4.0 credits. These credits must include the courses and marks indicated in the Guaranteed Admission requirements. To qualify under the part-time provision, students must have been enrolled in a part-time course load from the beginning of each session.
