Residence Requirements for a Degree

For a general degree, all students admitted prior to September 2007 and following the general degree program requirements with a major, including those transferring from another university, must complete at this university a minimum of 5.0 senior credits (or equivalent) including at least 75 percent of the minimum number of senior courses in the major.

Effective September 1, 2005, for a general degree without a major, all students, including those transferring from another university, must complete at this university a minimum of 5.0 senior credits (or equivalent) for the general degree without designations.

For an honours degree, all students, including those transferring from another university, must complete at this university a minimum of 10.0 credits (or equivalent) including at least 5.0 senior credits (or equivalent) in the honours discipline. This regulation applies to a student seeking their first degree. Students seeking a second degree should consult the upcoming section Additional Undergraduate Degree Requirements. Individual departments may require that students complete specific courses and/or years at this university. Exceptions to these regulations must be approved by the dean of the faculty offering the honours degree.

Credits earned by students who spend a year on an exchange program abroad in a program approved by Wilfrid Laurier University, will be considered as Laurier credits for purposes of residence requirements.
