Indigenous Admissions

At Nipissing University Indigenous Admission pathways fall under four categories. Each of the links below will bring you to areas of our Academic Calendar to provide you with more information on each of these admission policies. 


Admission policies for students of Indigenous ancestry, visible minorities or persons with disabilities. 

Indigenous Foundations Program (IFP)  

Nipissing University's first-year transition-to-university program for Indigenous students who are planning to pursue an undergraduate degree and want or need additional cultural, personal, and/or academic resources. 

Indigenous Summer Education Programs 

The Indigenous Summer Education Programs have been designed to prepare students of Indigenous Ancestry for teaching and classroom assistant positions in Ontario. These programs are offered over two summers. 

Bachelor of Education 

The Schulich School of Education offers a two-year consecutive program (after degree program) leading to a Bachelor of Education degree. In order to be admissible to this degree, students must possess or be graduating with an undergraduate degree.
