First Generation Pathway

First Generation Student Admission Pathway

Queen’s encourages participation in post-secondary education by First-Generation students. We offer First-Generation candidates, including Pathways to Education students, Crown Wards, and members of the Boys and Girls Club Raising the Grade program, an additional and alternative admission pathway to the first year of a full-time, first-entry undergraduate degree program.

Offers of admission will be made to First-Generation candidates whose total application shows strong evidence of academic preparedness and potential. Students will be introduced to the contacts and services available at the Student Experience Office and the Student Awards Office during the application process, and upon admission.

Queen’s University encourages students to access these services throughout their time at Queen’s. Students who are admitted through this pathway will be encouraged to make use of the academic advising and academic support services available to all students at Queen’s University.

For more information, please contact admission@queensu.ca to get in touch with an Admission Coordinator.
