Transfer Students: Admission Requirements
Transfer students will be selected for admission on a competitive basis. Normally, a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 5.00 (C) will be required: however, a higher average may be required for some programs.
If you have been required to withdraw from a university or post-secondary institution, refer to the section, Readmission of Students Required to Withdraw.
Transfer credit will be considered for students admitted from other accredited institutions for courses satisfactorily completed subject to the following conditions:
- Prospective transfer students must have attained the equivalent of a GPA of 5.00 (C) at their institution and must be eligible to re-register at their home institution. Students who may not register at the institution from which they wish to transfer will not be permitted to register at Wilfrid Laurier University.
Transfer credit will be considered for all courses passed but the course grades will not be included in the student's cumulative GPA at Wilfrid Laurier University.
Only courses taken at Wilfrid Laurier University will be included in the subsequent cumulative GPA.
Transfer credit will not be held for a given course of the major subject where a grade of less than 4.0 (C-) has been attained.
All requirements for the degree, including residence requirements, must be met.
Students applying to complete another undergraduate degree should also review the section, Requirements for Additional Undergraduate Degrees, in the University Regulations chapter.
Transfer students will receive, at most, one opportunity to clear academic probation.
