I have some college courses/a college diploma/a college degree. Do they count?
College courses are not included in a student’s GPA calculation for the purpose of law school admission at Western. Further, college study does not count towards the minimum academic requirements for Western Law. A minimum of three years (two years for Mature students) of full-time (or equivalent) university study is required. This is in accordance with the requirements for approved law degrees as set out by the Federation of Law Societies of Canada (i.e., “post-secondary education at a recognized university or CEGEP”). That said, additional education (including a college diploma or degree) is a positive factor in any application and is taken into consideration separately.
What about college courses for which a university will grant transfer credit?
College courses for which an applicant receives credit towards a university degree, as part of a pathways or bridging program, will be considered as appropriate pre-law study, provided an applicant has at least two years of university study beyond the college transfer credits.
