Applicants to First-Year Programs

Apply for an Admission Bursary

The bursary application is your chance to apply for Queen’s need-based financial assistance. This has no impact on your eligibility for admission to Queen’s. Bursaries are granted to students based on financial need. It’s an amount of money you receive to help finance your education and you don’t have to pay it back.

To complete your bursary application:

  1. Go to SOLUS
  2. Scroll to Finances–Financial Aid
  3. Click on “Queen’s Admission Bursary Application”

Send Your Transcript

If you’re not studying in an Ontario school, submit a transcript. You may receive an offer of admission, based on your grade 11 marks.

It's a good idea to review our How to Submit Documents information before sending us your transcript. Then, send us a transcript often. We will reassess your application every time we receive new information.

Incoming Exchange Undergraduate Students

In order to be an incoming international undergraduate exchange student, you must be nominated by your home university.

  1. If you haven’t already done so, create your NetID! This will allow you to access the Queen’s student system called SOLUS. Go to the NetID Profile Manager if you haven’t registered yet. (You will need the Queen’s Student ID number that was emailed to you.)

  2. To log into your SOLUS Student Center, follow the directions available on the Office of the Registrar website.

  3. Please ensure that we have your permanent contact information, as it will be used if you are required to obtain a study permit, or when you are entering Canada. Please email Maryann Severin at intstudy@queensu.ca with any changes or updates.

    Note: Your Permanent Address is the address you live at while you are not attending school. This can often be your family or home address.

  4. Your SOLUS account may be updated frequently throughout the application cycle so it is important to review it often. Any required documents you need to send to our office will show as "initiated" on the To Do List and will be removed once received.

  5. Arrange for your official transcript and supporting documentation to be emailed or faxed from your Home University Exchange Coordinator to:

    Maryann Severin
    Admission and Registration Coordinator,
    International Exchanges
    Email: intstudy@queensu.ca
    Fax: + 1-613-533-6810

    All supporting documents, including official transcripts, English-language proficiency test scores and any faculty-specific supporting documents must be sent by your home university. Faxed or emailed documents will be accepted if they come directly from your home institution international office. It’s recommended that supporting documents be sent to Queen’s University as soon as possible, and no later than April 30 for September entry and September 30 for January entry.
