Admissions Update

Applications for most programs are still open! Please remind your students that the OUAC deadline is not necessarily absolute, and to contact a Student Recruitment Officer should they have any questions about applying to a specific program.

As a reminder, we have found discrepancies with course submission for several schools. Specifically, we have found that the “planned to take” courses may not be showing at OUAC or on the students’ application. As a result, we may not know if students are taking six 4U/M courses, and we may not be able to make an admission decision. Please ensure that all information needed to facilitate an admission decision is sent to OUAC. Please contact us at studentrecruitment@uwindsor.ca if you have any questions.

Student Accessibility Services

Student Accessibility Services at the University of Windsor provides a variety of supports and services to students who have documented disabilities.

The Bill Eansor Award - $10,000 Scholarship!

The University of Windsor is proud to award over $11 million in scholarships each year. We encourage you to share this opportunity with your students. The Bill Eansor Award is named in memory of the late A.W. "Bill" Eansor '49, who had an outstanding record of leadership at the University of Windsor and who was active in the Alumni Association. This award is presented on the basis of leadership ability, community and school involvement, and academic standing.

One award of $10,000 ($2,500 x 4 years) will be made each year to an undergraduate student entering the University of Windsor in first year. This award is not tenable with other major awards. Students must first be accepted for admission to the University, be registered as a full-time student (four courses per semester towards an undergraduate degree) and maintain a minimum average of 80 percent.
