Equitable Admission Policy

The SCSD Admissions Committee gives special consideration to applicants who are Canadian citizens from the following historically under-represented and underserved groups: Indigenous peoples (e.g., Mi’kmaq) and members of racialized minority groups (e.g., African Nova Scotians). Accordingly, students who belong to one of these groups are invited to self-declare at the time of their application. Candidates who do so will be considered individually according to SCSD's requirements.

To be considered under the Equitable Admission Policy, please fill out Part IV of the SCSD Additional Information Form, which can be found on our Admission Procedures page.
