Welcome to Western

How to Apply as a Full-Time Student

Students who wish to study on a full-time basis will be enrolled in 3.5 courses or more between September and the end of April. The maximum course load for most undergraduate faculties and programs as a full-time undergraduate student is 5.0 courses.

Full-time applications are available on the Ontario Universities' Application Centre's website.

If you are unsure which application form you should be completing, please use the “Selecting an Application” tool available on the OUAC website.

If you wish to study full-time in the fall, but would like to start part-time in the spring/summer, please fill out the Full-time application and indicate “Summer” as your expected enrolment date.   You will automatically be considered for admission to the Fall/Winter session as well. The deadline to apply for spring/summer sessions beginning in May 2017 (intersession, summer evening/distance studies) is March 1st and the deadline for the Summer Day session beginning in July is May 1st.  To be eligible to commence studies in the spring/summer, your final transcript(s) must be available and submitted to the Admissions Office prior to the start of the session to which you have been admitted at Western.

We encourage prospective students to apply and submit required documents as soon as possible and well before the application deadlines.
