Indigenous admissions

The term "Indigenous" refers inclusively to status and non-status First Nations, M茅tis, and Inuit peoples of Canada, in accordance with the BC Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Act (DRIPA), which defines "Indigenous peoples" as aboriginal peoples under section 35(2) of the Constitution Act, 1982.

As an Indigenous student, it is important for you to self-identify in your 澳门二四六天天彩 application in order to be considered for Indigenous-specific awards and admissions policies, and to receive information about culturally unique programs and services for First Nations, M茅tis, and Inuit students.

Most Indigenous students are admitted based on a comprehensive review of their academic average and personal profile, within the curriculum they are studying. However, 澳门二四六天天彩 offers a number of pathways to a post-secondary degree.听

澳门二四六天天彩 Aboriginal Admission Policy

All applicants to 澳门二四六天天彩, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous, are required to meet the university鈥檚 general admission and degree-specific requirements. As with all applicants, we will review your academic history (and depending on your degree and year level, we may also review your personal profile), to make an admission decision. Most Indigenous students are admitted based on meeting the requirements set out by their degree of choice.

If you are not initially admitted, we will take a second look at your application using the听Aboriginal Admission Policy.
