Readmission of Students Required to Withdraw

Required to Withdraw from Laurier

If you were required to withdraw from Laurier, you may request re-admission to resume studies no earlier than 12 months from the date of required withdrawal.

Please note: Due to the competitive nature of the programs in the School of Business & Economics, students who were required to withdraw from the University are not eligible for re-admission into these programs. If you wish to be considered for re-admission into another program at the University, please follow the instructions below for Arts, Brantford or Science.

For the Faculty of Arts, Laurier Brantford and the Faculty of Science:

  1. Re-admission will be at the discretion of the appropriate Admissions Committee and is not guaranteed.
  2. Academic upgrading is required (i.e. Two academic college courses each at a minimum grade of A- (80%) is recommended. However, two university courses each at a minimum grade of B- (70%) or better may be accepted). These courses may not be taken at Laurier.
  3. Courses taken for upgrading purposes must be approved by the Admissions Officer for the faculty you are wishing to enter or re-enter. Please email the Admissions Officer with the course description or course syllabus or links to the website where this information can be found and include your full name and student ID number in the email.
  4. Courses taken at college or another university to either meet upgrading requirements or taken for interest while on a must withdraw status will not be awarded as or considered for transfer credit if you are re-admitted.
  5. An official transcript must be sent directly to the Admissions Office from the institution(s) attended for upgrading.

Previous Laurier students must complete: Request for Re-admission

Your request will be reviewed by the appropriate Admissions Committee. The Admissions Committee also requires that you submit, along with the appropriate academic documents, a letter written by you, addressed to the "Admissions Committee" which outlines the following:

  1. The program you wish to enter or re-enter;
  2. The reasons for your previous academic performance;
  3. Why you wish to attend Laurier and why you think you will be more successful academically if re-admitted;
  4. Details concerning your activities or work experience since your last attendance at school.

If re-admitted, students are permitted to enroll in part-time studies on academic probation. They are limited to 1.0 credits per semester and must successfully complete 2.0 credits (or equivalent) with a G.P.A. of 5.00 (C) within two years, but are limited to taking 2.0 credits (or equivalent) until academic probation is cleared. Upon clearing probation they may then proceed into full-time or part-time studies in accordance with regular academic regulations.
