Students from other provinces in Canada are eligible for admission to first year on the basis of Senior Matriculation, if their academic records meet, in subject matter and standing obtained, the requirements for admission to this University and to a recognized university in their own province.
Provided that the subjects are acceptable for admission, the following certificates and/or academic standings are considered as Senior Matriculation:
Grade 12 in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Northwest Territories, Nova Scotia, Nunavut, Prince Edward Island and Saskatchewan.
For Quebec, Grade 12 or its equivalent, i.e., completion of first year CEGEP (General Program) or Collegial Program at Bishop's, McGill, or Concordia University, with appropriate standing. [Note: Applicants who present the Diplome d'etude Collegiale with at least second class standing may be eligible for advanced standing in certain first year subjects.]
Note 1: Students intending to register in a first year program should note the requirements of that program.
Note 2: Upgrading in certain subject areas may be required in order to satisfy the admission or progression requirements of specific programs. This should be taken into consideration at the time of course selection during preregistration.
The awarding of Advanced Standing to applicants from a CEGEP who present the Diplome d'etude Collegiale is not automatic and is at the discretion of the Registrar's Office. The decision will be based on the following:
(i) the student's program of study in the CEGEP
(ii) the student's desired program of study at The University of Western Ontario.
Province of Quebec (CEGEP's)
(iii) the overall average in those courses for which advanced standing consideration is given (a minimum overall average of 75% is required).
The requirements for admission with advanced standing shall be based on completion of the two-year CEGEP general program subsequent to the Province of Quebec Grade 11 completion, and subject to standing satisfactory to the Senate Subcommittee on Admissions, and approval of the department(s) concerned, and subject to the following conditions:
- No consideration will be given to graduates of CEGEP's by the Faculties of Law or Medicine and Dentistry, until such time as the work completed at the CEGEP together with that completed at The University of Western Ontario (or at another university elsewhere) is considered equivalent to completion of second year of an appropriate University of Western Ontario program.
- Applicants to Year Three of the Program in Business Administration must also present a level of achievement equivalent to that demanded in #1.
- Students graduating from the Three-year Program (Professional) leading to qualification as a technician or technologist at the CEGEP shall be considered for admission using the same criteria as graduates in these fields from Colleges of Applied Arts and Technology (CAAT) in Ontario.
Admission requirements for the Province of Quebec are: Grade 12 or its equivalent, i.e., completion of first year CEGEP (General Program), with appropriate standing.
Note: Applicants who present Diplome d'etude Collegiale with at least second class standing may be eligible for advanced standing in certain subjects.

- have completed a minimum of twelve semester credits in the pre-university program with an average of 70% or better are eligible for admission consideration to Year I.
