Basis and Timing of Early Conditional Offers of Admission for Current Ontario Secondary School Applicants
Applicants who submit an academic record that consists of courses from both the OAC and Grade 12U/Grade 12M level curriculum will be considered equally.
In January, Wilfrid Laurier University will begin to extend conditional offers of admission to qualified applicants. The earliest admissions decisions will be based on the best five Grade 11 grades. It is likely that additional conditions will have to be met at this early stage, including minimum grades in program-specific prerequisite course requirements.
The next round of admissions decisions, commencing in April, will be based on the best six of a combined final or mid-term Grade 12U, 12M and/or Grade 11U (final grade only) average. This average must include a minimum of three Grade 12U and/or Grade 12M final or mid-term marks. In all cases, applicants must meet, or be registered in, the specific Grade 12U course requirements for each program.
In May, admissions decisions will be based on the best six of a combined mid-term or final Grade 12U and/or Grade 12M average. In all cases, applicants must meet, or be registered in, the specific Grade 12U course requirements for each program.
Applicants who are not eligible for a conditional offer of admission based on a combined mid-term or final Grade 12U and/or Grade 12M average, may request to be considered again based on final Grade 12U and/or Grade 12M marks, provided space is still available in the program requested.
Deferring Year 1 Full-Time Admission
Applicants wishing to defer admission must submit the deferral request form found at www.wlu.ca/forms_detail.php?grp_id=859&frm_id=509, along with a non-refundable processing fee to the Admissions Office.
Deferrals will normally be considered for applicants whose entrance average is 85 percent (A) or higher.
If your average is below 85 percent you must provide official documentation identifying extenuating circumstances (e.g. medical issues).
All conditions on the original offer of admission must be satisfied before a deferral will be granted.
Applicants who enrol in academic courses outside of WLU during the period of deferment will void their offer of admission. They will then be required to re-apply through the OUAC and disclose any new academic information.
Please note: Entrance Scholarships and Entrance Bursaries will not be deferred. Eligibility for an entrance scholarship will be assessed for the new entry point.
