Admission Policies

Repeated Courses
Ontario universities support the full disclosure of all marks achieved in all attempts at a secondary school course. At Queen’s, all programs will use the most recent grade achieved in calculating the admission average.
Admission Deferrals
Applicants with extenuating circumstances who have accepted their offer of admission by the deadline date may request a deferral of admission to that program for a period of one year. An online request (link found below), explaining the reason for the deferral request, is required before August 30. The decision of the Admission Committee to grant a deferral is based on the reason provided and final grades. Students granted a deferral are not permitted to attend another post-secondary institution in the interim.
Extenuating Circumstances
If there are any factors that clearly demonstrate significant extenuating circumstances, beyond your control, which have affected your academic performance over the past two years, please submit a separate letter along with supporting documentation, by April 30 to:
