Equity Admissions

An applicant who considers themselves to be personally and academically disadvantaged for reasons that are beyond their control 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, the Admissions office, and the President’s Equity Taskforce. The committee will consider the following items when delivering a recommendation for admissibility.

  • Factors identified by an applicant which may have impacted their previous academic performance.
  • An applicant's educational goals and an assessment of contributions they can make to the university community.

You are encouraged to apply if you feel personally or academically disadvantaged for reasons that are beyond your control, such as:

  • disability
  • gender identity
  • visible minority membership

We acknowledge that equity is a concept that governs all people and declaration of membership in a certain group will not be the sole determinant of admissibility. The information contained in the consideration form will be measured alongside other factors including possession of program prerequisites and achievement of the university's minimum grade point average: 70 per cent.

If you would like to be considered under the Equity Admissions Policy, please complete the Equity Admissions Consideration Form.

The deadline to submit the application is:

  • Friday, January 31, 2020
