How to Apply


For provincial specific requirements please visit Queen's University Admissions.

We offer Aboriginal candidates an additional and alternative pathway for admission to the first year of a full-time, first-entry undergraduate degree program, known as the Aboriginal Admission Policy. Aboriginal candidates apply through the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC) and self-identify as having Aboriginal ancestry. Candidates must meet the general admission requirements for each program and deadlines for undergraduate admission, including completion of the Personal Statement of Experience (PSE).

Candidates seeking admission consideration under this policy should submit a separate letter to the Aboriginal Community Liaison stating that they wish to be considered under this policy along with proof of Aboriginal ancestry (First Nation, Status/Non-Status, Métis or Inuit). Admission to Queen’s University will depend on the assessment of the student’s program pre-requisites (or equivalencies) as well as the student’s overall average and submission of the PSE and/or SE. The number of students admitted each year under this policy will be determined in the annual enrolment plan upon consultation with the faculties and schools.

Queen’s encourages participation in post-secondary education by First-Generation students. We offer First-Generation candidates, including Pathways to Education students, Crown Wards, and members of the Boys and Girls Club Raising the Grade program, an additional and alternative admission pathway to the first year of a full-time, first-entry undergraduate degree program.

Offers of admission will be made to First-Generation candidates whose total application shows strong evidence of academic preparedness and potential. Students will be introduced to the contacts and services available at the Student Experience Office and the Student Awards Office during the application process, and upon admission.

Queen’s University encourages students to access these services throughout their time at Queen’s. Students who are admitted through this pathway will be encouraged to make use of the academic advising and academic support services available to all students at Queen’s University.
