Policy on Minimum Admission Average


Approved by Senate March 31, 2005


The overall minimum admission average for all direct-entry undergraduate applicants to Queen's University is 75%.


Queen's University maintains a minimum admission average that is University-wide and consistent across all direct-entry undergraduate programs. The minimum of 75% reflects both the competition for and complexity of admission to Queen's University. The stated minimum average accurately reflects the demand and caliber of students applying for admission to Queen's. It also provides transparency to prospective applicants about the requirement for admission to Queen's undergraduate programs.

The standard does not prevent admission, which is determined at the program level, of exceptional students with extenuating circumstances.
