Readmission of Students Required to Withdraw

If you were required to withdraw from Wilfrid Laurier University, you may apply for readmission to begin studies not earlier than 12 months from the date of required withdrawal. Your request will be reviewed by the appropriate admissions committee. The admissions committee requires that you supply to the Admissions Office, along with appropriate academic documents, a letter written by you, 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 Wilfrid Laurier University and why you think you will be more successful academically at this time;
  4. details concerning your activities or work experience since your last attendance at school.

Readmission will be at the discretion of the admissions committee. Normally academic upgrading is required (i.e. two academic college credits at a minimum of A- or better). Once readmitted, candidates must successfully complete 2.0 credits (or equivalent) by part-time study with a GPA 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 academic regulations.
