Required Supporting Documents: All Applicants

Proof of English proficiency.
All applicants must submit proof of English proficiency.  Consult the English Language Proficiency Requirements document to determine what, if any, supplementary documents you must provide.

Copy of your high school transcript, including current mid-term grades if possible.
Students from Ontario high schools who have an Ontario Universities Application Center (OUAC) number can provide this number in the online application for fall entry, and Bishop’s University will receive transcripts directly from OUAC.  However, OUAC begins transmitting transcripts to Bishop’s only in March each year, so if you apply early and would like to receive a quick response to your request for admission, be sure to send a copy of your transcript directly to the Admissions Office as soon as you have applied.

Copy of personal identification document(s).
Consult the Personal Identification Documents page to determine what document(s) you must provide.

At the request of the Admissions Office, additional documentation (letter of motivation, CV, etc.) may be required to complete your application.

Academic Success Archway Program (A.S.A.P)

The A.S.A.P. program is a four-day (Sunday, August 27th – Thursday, August 31th, 2017) intensive university transition program designed to help students evolve from a Canadian high school or CEGEP setting and gain practical skills, competencies and confidence that will assist them in succeeding at Bishop’s University.

Students cannot simply join the A.S.A.P. program; rather they are selected – both by us and by themselves.  Once students apply to Bishop’s and supply high school or CEGEP transcripts, students will be contacted to tell them more about the A.S.A.P. program.
