International Baccelaureate (IB)


Program-Specific Requirements

Applicants who are completing the IB Diploma will be considered for admission upon presenting passes with an acceptable standing in a minimum of six subjects, of which three must be at the higher level.

The minimum total score requirement is 28. Some programs are more competitive and may require a higher minimum overall score. Laurier will accept IB predicted grades for early admission consideration.

For programs requiring Advanced Functions (Calculus), Higher or Standard Level Mathematics would be considered equivalent. Math Studies is not an acceptable prerequisite for courses requiring math.

Applicants completing individual IB courses in conjunction with another educational system will be assessed on the basis of their entire academic record.

All required courses must be at a minimum score of 4 unless otherwise noted.
