Bishop’s University will be waiving undergraduate application fees for students holding passports from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen, in response to the executive order issued in the United States preventing individuals from these countries from entering the U.S. for 90 days.
“Inclusiveness and community are at the heart of our values as an institution. Every year we open our arms to students and faculty from around the world. Our student body in particular is a rich tapestry of different cultures, nationalities, religions, and passions. The diversity found on our campus plays an important role in our success as a liberal arts university,” said Michael Goldbloom, C.M., Principal and Vice-Chancellor.
Dan Seneker, Director of Enrolment Management at Bishop’s, said: “Sixty countries are represented on the Bishop’s campus, including some that are affected by the executive order. We are happy to waive the application fee for anyone applying that holds a passport from these countries for the 2017-18 academic year.”
It’s worth noting that the Bishop’s campus is well known for its long tradition of welcoming international students, and has shown its unwavering support of refugee students through its Student-Refugee Sponsorship Program over the years.
The application deadline for Fall 2017 is April 1, 2017. Prospective students can apply on our website.
