Refer to the application and the university's website for up-to-date program details.



King’s University College is an intimate community of 3,500 students that offers small classes, personal interactions with professors and quality programs. Founded in 1954, King’s affiliation with Western provides you with access to all Western services, classes and programs. Most importantly, you will receive a Western degree.

Our campus is one block from Western University. Students can take courses at both campuses and easily move between the two on a free shuttle bus or enjoy the short walk. King’s backs on to the beautiful Thames River, is adjacent to green space and is a short distance from the vibrant clubs, restaurants, arts and sports scene of downtown London.

Approximately 22% of our students are international and come from more than 30 different countries. We are also home of the Catholic chaplaincy team for Western, offering Catholic mass on campus and an active Campus Ministry team.

The King’s University College Applicant Profile allows you to detail extenuating circumstances or extracurricular activities that support your application. The deadline to submit the Profile is May 1, 2024.


Supporting Documents


After we receive your application, you will receive an acknowledgement email asking for any other documents we need. We must receive supporting documents before we can make an admission decision.

It is your responsibility to ensure that all required documentation is submitted to the Office of Enrolment Services. Submit all documents as soon as they are available and prior to the document deadline.

If you are transferring from an Ontario college or university, transcripts may be electronically submitted through the OUAC. If you are a current Ontario high school student, your grades will be submitted automatically.

If we find evidence of falsified information and/or omission in the submission of an application for admission, any documentation in support of an application and/or an appeal for admission or re-admission, we reserve the right to deny admission, withdraw an offer of admission, withdraw an offer of scholarship and/or cancel course registration. We may consider previous submission of falsified or fraudulent documentation in future applications.

Language Requirements

If English is not your first language, you will need to submit proof of English-language proficiency. The Admissions Office reserves the right to require any applicant to write a test of English-language proficiency.

As an alternative to completing a language test, you may complete English as a second language (ESL) studies with one of our ESL partners.

Supplemental Documents

Applicants to our Catholic Studies for Teachers program must complete a mandatory supplementary application for admission consideration. We will not consider you for admission to this program unless you submit both the OUAC application and your supplementary application.

We offer additional optional forms on our website for students wishing to self-report grades or be considered under special circumstances.


Scholarships, Bursaries and Financial Aid

We offer generous, unlimited and guaranteed entrance scholarships for all new domestic and international high school, college and transfer students.

There is a range of additional entrance scholarships that consider additional criteria, including volunteerism, social justice and financial need. These scholarships require an application that is due by April 30, 2024.

We also offer bursaries, as well as an extensive Work Study program on campus that allows you to be employed while studying.


Offers of Admission

We will post all decisions in your Student Center. You will receive email notification of a decision to the email account you supplied in your OUAC application.

If you receive an offer and are currently enrolled in courses, your offer will be conditional. The conditions of your offer will be clearly outlined in your offer of admission letter. Usually, we want to see that you have graduated, kept your grades above a minimum average and, if applicable, achieved minimum English-language proficiency test scores.

When you send us your official final documents, we will check that you have met our conditions. If you are successful, we will turn your conditional offer into an unconditional offer, but we will not issue you a new offer letter.


Accessibility Services

Accessibility Services is committed to providing an accessible and barrier-free learning environment, with services geared toward a wide range of needs.

If you require accommodations, you must register with our services (once you have accepted your offer of admission) to schedule an individual meeting with one of our Accessibility Counsellors and submit the required documentation. 

Contact the Accessibility, Counselling and Student Development Office at: 519-433-3491, ext. 4321.

We encourage new students to contact Accessibility, Counselling and Student Development prior to their appointment with an Accessibility Counsellor. All information disclosed by students will be kept confidential.


Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

Student Affairs at King’s is committed to supporting Indigenous Students in reaching their highest potential through encouragement, culturally-responsive programming and advice from your application right through graduation and beyond.

We have committed to making postsecondary education more accessible for youth leaving care. If you grew up in the care of the Children’s Aid Society you can apply for bursary support to cover your tuition.

The King’s University College Applicant Profile allows you to detail extenuating circumstances or extracurricular activities that support your application. The deadline to submit the Profile is May 1, 2024.



Living in residence offers another dimension to your King’s experience. We provide on-campus housing for approximately 375 first-year and upper-year students.

Double rooms are the standard accommodation for first-year students. If you have special considerations, you may request a single occupancy room on the Online Residence Application website.

Typically, 30% of our residents are international students. We are proud of our multicultural residence community and encourage residents to embrace the opportunities for cross-cultural learning.
