Admissions Accessibility Policy

If you wish to be considered under our Admissions Accessibility Policy, please submit our online Admissions Accessibility form. This form provides an opportunity for you to share any extenuating circumstances that have adversely affected your grades with our Admissions Committee. Please submit this form for consideration only if you believe your average will fall marginally below the competitive average of your preferred program.  Please note that in order to be considered for admission, applicants are still required to meet minimum university admission requirements. Depending on the program, and time of cycle,  there may be cases where the preferred program is limited in enrollment or is full.

Requests for special admission consideration, including any supporting documentation, must be submitted by:

September Intake: April 15
January Intake: November 15
May Intake: March 15

You may be considered under one or more of the following categories:

  1. Equity Consideration
    • An applicant who considers themselves to be academically disadvantaged for reasons that are beyond their control may request special consideration by submitting the Admissions Accessibility online form. You are encouraged to apply if you feel personally or academically disadvantaged for reasons that are beyond your control, such as:
      • visible minority membership
      • gender identity
  2. Extenuating Circumstances
    • An applicant who considers themselves to be academically disadvantaged for reasons that are beyond their control may request special consideration by submitting the Admissions Accessibility online form. You are encouraged to apply if you feel personally or academically disadvantaged for reasons that are beyond your control, such as:
      • Unexpected events or situations
      • Severe illness
      • Financial hardships (personal or family)
    • Please use the form to articulate how the extenuating circumstances have impacted your academic performance.
  3. Indigenous Students
    • An applicant who has self-identified as Indigenous who does not meet the competitive GPA for admission, but who still meets a minimum 70 per cent high school grade point average, may apply to have a separate assessment conducted by a committee.
  4. Person with a Disability
    • Request an individual review and special consideration by submitting the Admissions Accessibility online form and articulate how your disability has impacted your academic performance.
    • Supporting documentation must be provided.
    • an IEP (when available). Please note: an IEP on its own is not considered formal documentation at the post-secondary level but can be submitted as a starting point when requesting consideration for academic accommodations.

Note: If you would like to be considered for academic accommodations, once you have accepted an offer of admissions to Brock University, you will need to register with Student Accessibility Services by completing the New Student Registration form.

Brock supports students with disabilities in the academic environment. The campus is wheelchair accessible and includes accessible housing units.
