Special Admission Consideration

If you meet the minimum admission requirements and feel you have been disadvantaged based on one of the categories below, please submit our online Special Admission Consideration Form and we will individually review your application.

If you have less than 70% on your top 10.0 full university credits, unfortunately, we will not consider you under the Special Admission Consideration policy.

If you are admitted under this policy, you will be required to meet the same progression and graduation standards as other students.

The Special Admission Consideration Form will open on October 10, 2022. Requests for special consideration, including the submission of any supporting documentation, must be submitted by December 10, 2022. No requests will be accepted after this date.

You may be considered under one of the following categories:

  1. Equity Consideration
    • An applicant who considers themselves to be disadvantaged for reasons that are beyond their control are encouraged to submit a request. These may include:
      • Visible minority membership
      • Self-identified Indigenous applicants
  2. Extenuating Circumstances
    • An applicant who considers themselves to be academically disadvantaged for reasons that are beyond their control. Please use the form to articulate how the extenuating circumstances have impacted your academic performance. These may include:
      • Unexpected events or situations
      • Severe illness
      • Financial hardships (personal or family)
  3. Person with a Disability
    • An applicant with a disability who believes their disability has impacted their 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 admission 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.
