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.

Western University

Western's Special Consideration Profile provides an opportunity for you to share any extenuating circumstances that have adversely affected your grades with Western's Admissions Committee. Extenuating circumstances may include disability, personal illness, financial circumstances, required employment, family illnesses or other personal or family matters. Deadline: April 30.

The Extraordinary Extracurricular and Contributions to Citizenship Profile is an optional profile designed to recognize your commitment to “extracurricular activities and active citizenship” through ongoing contributions to school and community life. If you think your average will fall marginally below the University's minimum admission requirements and your commitments have impacted your grades, this form is for you. Deadline: April 30.
