She:kon, Aanii, Hello!
Congratulations on taking this opportunity to learn more about McMaster University! We are very excited that you are considering McMaster as an option for your postsecondary education. Myself, along with the rest of the Aboriginal Student Services Team hope that you will take the time to review the information found on this site to learn more about the exciting initiatives that are happening currently within the McMaster community!
Applying to university is often an exciting and anxious time, and some applicants may find themselves overwhelmed with the process. In my role at McMaster University, I am here to offer Aboriginal applicants with assistance through the application, admission and transition process. I can provide you with helpful information that is specific for Aboriginal students, including:
- Application, Admission and Transition information
- Financial aid, scholarship and bursary opportunities
- Campus tours
- Events on campus
- Aboriginal Student Services
- And much more!
In order to benefit from my assistance, I encourage you to take advantage of the opportunity to self-identify as an Aboriginal applicant when you apply through OUAC (Ontario Universities’ Application Centre), or the online McMaster Part-Time student application. When you choose to self-identify as an Aboriginal applicant it allows me to offer you enhanced services throughout critical stages of the application, admission and transition process. It also allows me to link you with my colleagues who work at McMaster as Aboriginal Student Service Providers, and this will be a benefit for your overall student experience during your time at McMaster.
If you have any questions about programming, student life, or anything else at McMaster University, I would like to invite you to contact me personally.
Wishing you all the best during this exciting time,
Jennie Anderson, Aboriginal Recruitment and Retention Officer
