Admission Scholarships

To recognize your academic achievement, we will offer you an admission scholarship ranging in value from $1,000 for one year, to $10,000 ($2,500 each year for four years) if you are admitted based on your secondary school diploma, and your final admission average including prerequisite courses as calculated by Western, is 88 per cent or greater. Western will determine averages for applicants who are not studying in a Canadian secondary school curriculum based on: curriculum, grading practices, grading scale interpretation and performance of previous students from that curriculum while at Western.

The First-Year Courses You Want

Western offers more than 400 different specializations, majors and minors at the undergraduate level. Choose the first-year courses you want for the program in which you are enrolled on Main Campus and, as long as you have the prerequisites, we will guarantee you a spot in 1000 level courses on Main Campus.
