How do we make offers of admission?

    *English is always used in the average calculation – after that, we will use your top acceptable courses
  • If you have taken a course more than once, we'll use the highest grade received
  • We won’t use grades obtained through Challenge for Credit
  • Taking online, summer or private school courses? It is your responsibility to make sure they are approved and accredited by the Ministry of Education. If you are taking summer courses, please inform us that you are enrolled by emailing info@kings.uwo the registration information
  • Students may complete an Applicant Profile (which describes extenuating circumstances and extracurricular activities), which will be considered in cases where the minimum average wasn't met
