Activate your NetID

If you haven’t already done so, activate your NetID using the Queen's Student ID number that was emailed to you! Your Queen’s NetID is used to access SOLUS, which has important information, including your To-Do List.

Add to your safe sender list.

Adding @queensu to your safe email senders list ensures that you will receive all your emails from Queen's. We will use the email address used on your application to communicate with you.

Submit your Supplementary Essay (if required)

For those students applying to the Nursing Advanced Standing Track Program or the Upper-year Commerce program, ensure you have submitted your Supplementary Essay.

Check your To-Do List on SOLUS

Use your NetID to access SOLUS. 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.

Please note: Before trying to access your SOLUS Student Centre, wait at least 30 minutes after activating your NetID.

Steps to log into SOLUS Student Centre:

  1. Go to
  2. Select SOLUS Student Centre.
  3. Enter your NetID and type NOTE: Even though you don’t have an activated Queen’s email address, you will still need to add after your NetID. For example, 
  4. Enter your NetID password to access your SOLUS Student Centre account.
