Students who do not meet the course requirements as outlined in section A.5.1.1. (High School Admission Requirements) or A.5.3.1 (Transfer Admission Requirements) or whose average is below consideration for the Indigenous Admission process will be considered as follows:
- Present the successful completion of English Language Arts 30-1 or equivalent, and at least two other 30 level approved courses that may include one 30 level approved option. A high school diploma is not required and some faculties may require specific courses for admission consideration.
- Faculties with Indigenous bridging programs that provide academic upgrading may consider students with courses at the 20 or 30-2 level. Upon successful completion of bridging program requirements, including the equivalence to meet the institutional requirement for English Language Arts 30-1, students will be guaranteed admission to the degree program.
- Faculties may waive post-secondary admission course requirements for students with prior post-secondary studies.
- All applicants will be asked to provide a personal statement in the format of the student’s choice (oral, written, video etc.) that outlines their educational goals and how their past education, cultural knowledge, life and work experiences will enable them to succeed in university studies.
- References may be requested at the discretion of the faculty admission committee.
- Indigenous identity must be verified before students will be considered under the Indigenous Admission Supplementary Process.
A faculty specific admission committee will review all complete applications submitted but not eligible through the Indigenous Admission Process. Not all faculties may consider students for admission through this process.
