How often does Queen’s send out acceptances?

Queen’s University typically sends out acceptances on an ongoing basis from early December to mid-May. The exact timing varies depending on the application and the program, but most offers are made between these dates.

Here is a more specific timeline for when you can expect to hear back:

  • December to Mid-January: Queen’s begins reviewing applications and making conditional offers of admission. These offers are based on preliminary academic results, such as Grade 11 marks and Grade 12 midterm grades.
  • February to Mid-April: Queen’s continues reviewing applications and making final offers of admission. These offers are based on final Grade 12 marks and completion of the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD).
  • Mid-April to May: Queen’s sends out a few remaining offers of admission, usually to applicants who are on the waitlist.

Please note that these are just general guidelines, and the exact timing of your acceptance offer may vary. It is always a good idea to check your OUAC and Queen’s SOLUS accounts regularly for updates.

Here are some additional tips for increasing your chances of getting an early acceptance from Queen’s:

  • Apply early: The earlier you apply, the earlier you can be considered for an offer. The application deadline for Ontario high school students is April 30, but it is always a good idea to apply as early as possible.
  • Submit all required documents: Queen’s needs to have all of your required documents in order to review your application. Make sure to submit your transcripts, standardized test scores, and any other requested documents as soon as possible.
  • Consider applying for a Major Admission Award (MAA): The MAA program is a great way to demonstrate your interest in Queen’s and increase your chances of getting an early offer. Applications for the MAA open on November 20 and close on December 8.
