To be eligible to apply, you must:

  • Have a minimum overall average of 70% at the time you submit your application and at the time you participate in the exchange program
  • Be in good academic standing
  • Have completed all year 1 and year 2 program requirements prior to going on exchange 

Meeting the above eligibility requirements does not guarantee that you will be nominated for exchange at your preferred institution or that you will be accepted by the host institution.

Please be advised that the best time to go on exchange is during your third year.  You may go on exchange in the first term of your fourth year but you may be required to spend an extra year at OCAD U in order to complete your remaining program requirements.
