Conditional Offers of Admission

Queen’s University continues to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and the effects it is having around the world. We understand that you may be worried about your offer of admission. We know that you have many questions about how we will deal with your offer conditions, how to prepare yourself for the rigours of university academics, and what to expect this fall.  We will continue to be available to answer your questions and we will reach out with specific information on how Queen’s can help you prepare for the start of your undergraduate career. 

Schools and exam boards have been adjusting their curriculums, evaluation and assessment methods. We want to assure you that we will continue to accept these adjusted assessment methods in order to meet our conditions. If your school or exam provider cancels/postpones final exams or adjusts its usual grading practices, we will use the results reported by your school or exam provider in order to meet our conditions. As we receive new information from our school and exam partners around the world, we will update this website to reflect any changes to your conditions of admission. 

This page will continue to be updated as the situation evolves. We will provide information as to when each section was most recently updated. Additional curriculums will be added if needed; check back regularly, and email us with any questions at admission@queensu.ca​.
