Indigenous Learner Policy
We offer Indigenous candidates an alternative admission pathway for first-year, full-time, first-entry undergraduate degree programs, known as the Aboriginal Admission Policy. To be considered under Queen’s Aboriginal Admission Policy, you must apply through the OUAC and self-identify as having Indigenous ancestry; meet the general program requirements and deadlines for undergraduate admission and submit a separate letter to the Indigenous Community Liaison saying you wish to be considered under this policy, along with proof of ancestry. Questions can be directed to the Four Directions Indigenous Student Centre by email or by phone at 613-533-6970.
All students are encouraged to complete the Personal Statement of Experience (PSE) in support of their application. The PSE is required for admission consideration for the Commerce program.
Mature students can apply to Queen’s under the category of “interest student”, which is not intended for on-campus studies. You must be over the age of 21 to apply under this category.
If you are interested in transferring to Queen’s from another university or college, Queen’s website gives you helpful information on its transfer policies and supports. You can also check out your eligibility for course transfers through the Ontario Council on Articulation and Transfer, an organization that provides information on credit transfers in Ontario.
