It is the responsibility of each applicant to ensure that the application file is complete. The following must be submitted by each applicant to the Office of the Registrar:
- A completed application form
- The appropriate application fee for the program
- For students applying directly from high school, an official record of high school work
- An official academic transcript from all previous post-secondary institutions (if applicable)
- Evidence of competency in English for applicants whose native language is not English (see “H. English Language Proficiency Requirements”)
- Supplementary information as required for specific programs
- Mature applicants should also enclose a letter
- Students seeking scholarship or other entrance funding, please complete the supplementary scholarship and bursary application forms found on the King’s website.
Documents, once submitted, become the property of the University of King’s College and cannot be returned.
A. January Admissions
Admission of first-year students in January is not recommended because the number of introductory courses in the Winter term is very limited. Part-time students and transfer students may be admitted for courses beginning in January in BA, BSc, and Special Student programs.
B. Response to Applications
King’s will respond to your application as promptly as possible and will advise you by email of any missing documentation. Please notify the Registrar’s Office if your address changes.
When documentation is complete, applications are forwarded to the appropriate admissions committee. Although every effort is made to obtain decisions quickly, there will be some delay at times, particularly with limited enrolment programs. There may also be some delay in admission decisions for programs starting beyond the next academic session. As soon as decisions are made, applicants will be advised by email and mail.
C. Early Acceptance
Applicants currently attending high school who have good academic records and a competitive admission average may be given early acceptance, conditional on satisfactory completion of work in which they are currently enrolled. The admission average required for early acceptance will vary based on each year’s applicant pool, and will range upward from the mid 70’s.
D. Final Acceptance
Applicants must successfully complete high school courses in the required subjects with a minimum average of 70%. An official transcript of final grades must be submitted to the Registrar’s Office by August 1.
Please note that possession of the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission.
