Extenuating Circumstances

If a student’s grades were adversely affected by health or personal problems, some universities may take these extenuating circumstances into consideration when making admission decisions. The following are links to each university’s admission policies about extenuating circumstances.

If your academic grades have been impacted by extenuating circumstances, we encourage you to to complete an Extenuating Circumstance Supplemental Application.

After you apply through the OUAC, you can access this application on the myTrent portal, under the “Academics” tab. The University will review each situation on a case‑by‑case basis.
