Accessibility Admissions


Nipissing University welcomes applications from individuals of diverse backgrounds.  We recognize that there are institutional processes and cultural differences that present barriers to some applicants obtaining access to university.  Nipissing University is committed to diversity, equity and accessibility and have reserved spaces in our undergraduate programs for students from groups including but not limited to, Indigenous people, persons with disabilities, economically disadvantaged individuals, Franco-Ontarians, visible minorities, LGBTQ+ and those from northern/remote/rural areas.

To be considered you must:

  • apply to year one of an undergraduate program (application to be submitted through the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre, OUAC);
  • have completed the minimum prerequisite courses for admission;
  • submit a letter to the Admissions Office outlining your circumstances and how you plan to be successful at Nipissing University.

Students admitted under this policy are required to meet the university and program standards for progression and graduation.
