Indigenous Admission Policy

If you have self-identified as First Nation (Non-status or Status), Inuit or Métis and do not meet the competitive grade point average (GPA) for admission – but still meet the minimum 70% high school GPA – you may apply to have a separate assessment conducted by our committee.

The committee includes members from the faculty of application, Admissions, and Indigenous Education and Cultural Services. The committee will consider student history, work experience, educational goals and other achievements in delivering a recommendation for admissibility.

Equity Admission Policy

If you consider yourself to be personally and academically disadvantaged for reasons that are beyond your control, you may apply to have a separate assessment conducted by the university’s Equity Admissions Committee. Our committee includes a member from the faculty of application, Admissions and the President’s Equity Taskforce.

You will have an opportunity to outline factors that may have negatively affected your academic performance and to describe the contributions that you can make to the university community. You are required to meet the university’s minimum 70% high school GPA for consideration.

Contact the Admissions office for more information.
