If you are applying after August 1st, please contact your Admissions Officer for access to our internal application form.

Applicant Profile

Applicants who do not meet the minimum entrance requirements, but wish to be considered based on extenuating circumstances or extra-curricular activities, should consider submitting an Applicant Profile.

STEP 4: Activate your western identity and log in to your student center

Your Western Identity is your key to central services at Western and consists of your User ID and Password. Your User ID is a unique name that identifies you as a member of the Western community. This identity is assigned to you upon application to Western.

Before you begin, you will need your Western Student Number and your Western Access Code. Follow these steps in order to activate your Western Identity.

After you activate your Western Identity, you will be able to log in to your Student Center and Western email account.

STEP 5: Submit your required documents

Ontario high school grades will be submitted to Brescia by your school through OUAC. If you complete a summer course, please make sure to arrange that your transcript is sent to Brescia’s admissions office.

If you're not a Ontario high school student, please send all documentation to Brescia:

Brescia University College
Office of the Registrar, Admissions
1285 Western Road
London, Ontario, Canada
N6G 1H2

STEP 6: Watch for updates

Admission decisions for September start are made on an ongoing basis between December and May using available grade information.

If you're not a Ontario high school student, required documents must be received before we can assess your application. Transfer credit is normally included in your offer of admission, if applicable.

All offers of admission are conditional until final grades are received by the Admissions Office. All students will be notified by email and/or mail of their acceptance to Brescia.

Students can check the status of their application by accessing their Student Centre account.
