In this section you will find information about Lakehead’s admission requirements, policies and supports that are available to you.
To find out about Lakehead’s requirements for entrance into each academic program, please
visit the Lakehead website.
Lakehead’s admission requirements are divided into different categories of learners that include high school, transfer and mature students. Each type has different requirements and admission policies. Select the category that describes you best and then find the admission requirements specific to your category.
Aboriginal Learner Policy
During the academic year, university recruiters travel throughout Ontario to visit Aboriginal learners in many secondary schools and community organizations. These recruiters are part of the Aboriginal Post-Secondary Information Program (APSIP), a collection of Aboriginal recruiters from Ontario and Quebec colleges and universities. They’ll have the most up-to-date information about applying to your university as an Aboriginal learner.
Alternative Admissions and Transition Programs
Native Access Program
You can access Lakehead’s Native Access Program, an 8-month, full-time university preparatory program, if you’re an Aboriginal learner who didn’t meet admission requirements but who wants to pursue a university education.
Native Nurses Entry Program
If you’re interested in pursuing nursing but didn’t meet the admission requirements, Lakehead’s Native Nurses Entry Program is an 8-month, full-time university preparatory program that will give you the skills and academic preparation you need to gain entry into the 4-year degree program. The program is intended to increase the numbers of Aboriginal nurses and to improve health care for Aboriginal communities.
If you haven’t attended a secondary school or college full time for at least 2 years, you might be considered a mature learner. Check out Lakehead’s mature learner policy to find out how you can transition to university as a mature learner.
If you are interested in transferring to Lakehead from another university or college, Lakehead’s website gives you helpful information on its credit 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.
