Offers of Admission

All offers of admission made to Ontario high school students by Queen's University, prior to receiving final grades and completing the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) are conditional. Decisions can be based on final Grade 11 results (with registration in appropriate Grade 12 courses), final first semester Grade 12 results and/or Grade 12 interim results.

Basic Requirements for Admission

The OSSD and six 4U/M courses, including a minimum of 2 courses at the U level, are required. Please review the specific program requirements for more details, as some programs may require more than 2 courses at the U level. Average calculation is based on prerequisite subjects, plus the next best 4U/M courses, for a total of 6 courses.

Note: The Engineering admission average is calculated using only the 5 prerequisite courses.

A high school transcript is just 1 piece of information we use when making an admission decision. Each applicant to Queen's has a unique To Do List, detailing exactly what we need to complete their application. Students can see their To Do List (and the due dates) on their SOLUS Student Centre. We will send students SOLUS access information after they apply. 

Failed and Repeated Courses

Ontario universities support full disclosure of all marks achieved in all attempts at a high school course. At Queen's, all undergraduate programs will use the most recent grade achieved when calculating the admission average.

Timing and Process for Admission Decisions

Admission decisions will be made once all required documentation is submitted to Undergraduate Admission and Recruitment. The deadline for Ontario high school students to submit documentation to Queen's (not including the PSE/SE) is April 30.

Admission decisions will be made on an ongoing basis from early-December to mid-May. Ontario high school students are required to respond to offers of admission by June 1.

Alternative Offers

Queen's University does not make alternative offers of admission. You are considered only for the program(s) you apply for (or amend) through the Ontario Universities' Application Centre. You should ensure all program choices are listed on your application.
