Prospective Students

The University of Windsor is committed to ensuring equal access for all students and welcomes applications from students who may have disabilities.

Students with disabilities are required to apply to the University of Windsor through the regular admission process, which starts with an application through the Ontario University Application Centre (OUAC). Students whose averages meet the admissions standard for their chosen program will be offered admission in the period between February and May of the admission year.

Once you have received and are ready to accept your offer of admission to the University of Windsor, go to the UWinsite Student web page to determine your next steps and formally launch your UWindsor experience. Make yourself familiar with the various Student Orientation activities that are available to you. You might also want to look into UWindsor Prep which provides non-crredit, refresher courses that review Grade 12 curriculum and give you a taste of what to expect in the University classroom.    

This would also be a good time to contact Student Accessibility Services and arrange for Student Intake and Registration with us.

You may also want to check out the website created by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU) specifically for students with disabilities who are making the transition to post-secondary education. The Transition Resource Guide for Students with Disabilities, is a great place to look for information about the services and resources available to post-secondary students with disabilities.

Note: If you are a high school graduate whose average is below the threshold for admission to the University of Windsor, and you think you have what it takes to succeed in university, you can still seek admission for Fall 2020 through the Gateway Program.
