Students who are not currently attending an Ontario Secondary School

Offers of Admission are being extended on a rolling basis. We will evaluate your application when we receive all of the documents we requested in support of your application.

Check your Student Center to view the information that we have requested from you and the status of your application. Your personalized To Do List will inform you of any documents required to complete your application. By selecting the details link you are able to see if those documents have been received at Western’s Main Campus Admissions Office. You will also be able to find more information on how to submit your documents by clicking on the To Do Item. If you have not yet submitted your documents please do so as soon as they become available. The sooner you send in the information we need to assess your application, the sooner we will be able to evaluate your application and provide a decision.

Remember, you must respond to an Offer of Admission by the date indicated on your offer form and that you must meet the conditions of your admission in order to retain your offer.
