Aboriginal Admissions Access Category
Western is committed to increasing access to postsecondary education for Indigenous students. The purpose of the Aboriginal Access Admission Category is to encourage Indigenous individuals to apply to Western for their undergraduate degrees and to provide them with extended academic, personal and cultural supports for their transition and success.
The Academic Transition Opportunities (ATO) Program offers academic, cultural and personal supports to Indigenous undergraduate students.
The supports include orientation workshops, tutoring, academic advising, cultural programming, mentorship opportunities and more.
If you have not attended a high school or college full time for at least 4 years, you might be considered a mature student.
Read Western’s mature applicant admissions regulations to find out how you can transition to university.
You can also find out if you are eligible for course transfers through the Ontario Council on Articulation and Transfer, an organization that provides information about credit transfers in Ontario.
