To be eligible for most admission awards you must be:

  • Entering the first year of post-secondary education for the first time in a full-time (minimum 60% course load) Queen's undergraduate degree program on Queen's campus or at the Bader International Study Centre (graduates from a 2-year CEGEP program transferring into their first year of a Queen's program remain eligible for grades-based admission scholarships).
  • Students who are/were enrolled in their first-year of courses at another post-secondary institution would be eligible for admission awards on an appeal basis provided:
    • The student is being admitted based on his/her high school grades (excludes all post-secondary course work). And,
    • The student is being admitted into year one of a full-time undergraduate degree program at Queen’s.
    • All appeals must be received by December 1 of your first year at Queen’s.

  • Domestic (Canadian citizens, permanent residents) and international students (including U.S. students) will be considered for automatic grade based admission scholarships. International and U.S. students should also visit the International and U.S. Students section for more information on additional Admission Awards.
  • Queen's will calculate an awards average based on grades available at the time you are offered admission. Final grades will be assessed for scholarship and award consideration for those students who accept their offer of admission to Queen's. If you do not receive a scholarship offer at the time you were offered admission, we will review your final grades after we have received final grade reports from the Ontario Universities' Application Centre in July. Summer courses taken in the summer immediately prior to your admit term to the university will not be used in the assessment of your final grade average.
  • Note: To receive and remain eligible to retain an admission scholarship/award in the academic year granted, the student must be admitted and registered as a full-time student in the fall/winter academic year.

Renewal Eligibility

If you have been granted a renewable academic based award, to remain eligible for renewal of the award you are expected to:

  • Remain registered in an 80% course load (typically 24 units in Fall/Winter)
  • Achieve a minimum G.P.A. of 3.5

Please note that not all academic based awards are renewable, refer to the award terms on SOLUS or the Student Awards website to confirm if your Queen’s award is renewable.  Review the Queen’s Renewable Awards Policy for further details.

The awards average is calculated in a manner consistent with the calculation and criteria used for admission purposes.

NOTE: The academic guideline listed for the major admission awards is not based on the awards average as outlined above.
