Indigenous Student Policy

During the academic year, university recruiters travel across Ontario to visit Indigenous students in many high schools and community organizations. These recruiters are part of the Aboriginal Post-Secondary Information Program (APSIP), a collection of Indigenous recruiters from Ontario and Quebec colleges and universities. APSIP has the most up-to-date information about applying to university as an Indigenous student.

Alternative Admission and Transition Programs

The Indigenous Enriched Support Program is a 1-year transition and support program for students seeking entry to university. It helps students develop their reading, writing and critical thinking skills to be successful at university.

If you achieve the necessary grade point average across 3 courses in this program, you will be eligible to be accepted as a full-time student.
