Western Ivey Acceptance Rate

Written by Akim Hermoso and Matthew Tran

At a rough estimation with 600-700 students with AEO status annually, 8.5% is roughly the Western Ivey acceptance rate.

However… What are Western Ivey’s criteria and requirements?

Admission Criteria

A competitive Ivey AEO application includes:

  • 93%+ average in your final year of secondary school
  • Completion of a mathematics course for university-bound students
  • Demonstrated leadership in extracurricular activities, community involvement, and work experience

Western Ivey Admissions Requirements

If you currently attend an Ontario high school, Ivey’s AEO status requires the following courses before you can be officially admitted:

  • Mandatory Course
  • Grade 12 English (ENG4U)
  • One 4U math course, such as:
  • Four additional 4U or 4M courses

Ivey does not have grade cut-offs for each individual course. Instead, they state the cumulative average from your six best courses should be at least 90% to be considered competitive.

    • Maintain a full course load over two years of university (equivalent of 10.0 Western courses).
    • Achieve a minimum average of 70% in 10.0 university courses completed including Business 2257.
    • Complete a secondary school mathematics course for students bound for university or an equivalent.

  2. A competitive Ivey HBA application includes:
    • Demonstrated leadership in extracurricular activities, community involvement, and work experience
    • 80%+ average on 10.0 full courses (or the equivalent) at any university (if at another university, these courses must be acceptable to transfer to Western). The minimum average to transfer to Western is 70%. The average needed for admission to Ivey HBA may be much higher.
