Admission Requirements

These criteria cannot be waived. These are minimum requirements and meeting them does not guarantee admittance.

  • You must have successfully completed a four year bachelor’s degree with at least a B+ grade point average (or the equivalent) in the final year.
    • If you are in the final stages of a bachelor’s degree you can still be considered. If your application is accepted you’ll be admitted on the condition that you complete your degree (meeting the minimum grade point) before registering in the eHealth program.
  • If English is not your native language you must provide a TOEFL or IELTS score with your application. A minimum TOEFL (iBT) score of 92 (580 or 237 is needed). The IELTS minimum is 7.0 total.
    • You are exempt from this requirement if you have completed a university degree at a school where English was the language of instruction. (For universities outside North America, please provide a letter from the school confirming the language of instruction when you submit your transcript.)
    • Remember that TOEFL and IELTS scores are valid for 2 years.

If you don’t have a computer science background, you must complete 1 course in programming (any language such as C++, Java, Python, etc) by August 15, 2019 (corrected date).  You may be given a conditional offer of admission in the meantime, which will be fully approved once you submit proof that you’ve taken these courses (i.e certificate).

The following courses are recommended and well suited to applicants who have no computer programming background.
