Application Tip: Tell Admissions About Your Story

We recommend that prospective undergraduate and transfer students share their story with Admissions Services.

Prospective Undergraduate Students (directly from high school):

Complete the Student Profile Form (SPF) to let Admissions know more about yourself. SPFs will be taken into consideration during the late April to mid-May round of offers of admission.

Prospective Transfer Students (having any amount of post-secondary experience):

Submit a personal support letter to Admissions at to tell them about any extenuating circumstances that may have prevented you from meeting the minimum transfer requirements.

Coming from the United States

Students from the United States who identify as First Nations, Inuit, Métis or Native American on their application will be eligible to pay domestic tuition fees rather than international fees. A tribal enrollment, registration or status card must be presented to qualify. To have tuition adjusted, undergraduate students must present their tribal enrollment card to the Office of Registrarial Services and graduate students present the card to the Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies.

Six Nations Polytechnic - University Program (UP)

Six Nations Polytechnic (SNP), in cooperation with a consortium of six universities, facilitates a community-based University Program - First Year.

The program allows students the opportunity to achieve a total of five credits on a full or part-time basis while attending classes at SNP. Students who achieve at least 60% in each of their courses will have those credits applied towards a Bachelor of Art program at the consortium university of their choice.
