Information for Educators

As an educator ready to send countless students off to university, we know that you have many questions. Please read through the information below to stay in the loop about life at Brock.

If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us by email or check out our Next Steps page for more detailed information.

Admissions

Brock’s goal is to provide applicants with a clear and fair admissions process as the starting point for a truly supportive academic experience.

Due to these very unpredictable times due to COVID-19, the regular worries and anxiety that come with university application may feel higher than normal. Brock has made a commitment to assess academic achievements in the context of these obstacles.

Brock confirms that no student will be disadvantaged because of a change in plans related to their school’s necessary decisions about transcripts, the calculation of final grades, the absence of AP or IB tests, and potential delays.

Considerations in place to support our applicants during the pandemic include:

  • Flexible deadlines and intake: If applicants feel that they may not meet a deadline, they can simply reach out and connect with one of our Admission Officers. In addition to flexibility with deadlines, we also have three intakes: September, January, and May.
  • Admissions Accessibility Policy: If extenuating circumstances have had a negative impact on applicants’ academic records, they are encouraged to submit a special consideration supplement that will be considered by our Admissions Committee.

New program alert: Forensic Psychology and Criminal Justice

The BA Honours in Forensic Psychology and Criminal Justice (FPAC) program offers an exciting opportunity to study criminal behaviour and criminal justice in a uniquely diverse way. Using the tools and perspectives of psychology, criminology, child and youth studies, and political science, students will learn about the individual, social, cultural, and systemic factors that influence criminal and aggressive behaviour, and the institutions that make up the criminal justice system.
