Information for Transfer Students
Attention Transfer Students
If you are transferring from a college program, you have likely already made many of the transitions that a high school student will be making this coming year. We are pleased to offer transfer students the alternative of booking an individualized appointment with an academic advisor to select classes based on transfer credit assessments. Please visit the Laurier Brantford Academic Advising website and complete the online appointment request form to access this service: http://www.wlu.ca/brantford/advising.
Registering in Courses
- Assessment of transfer credit is done by Laurierís Admissions Office on an individual basis upon receipt of official transcripts and course descriptions. Transfer credit
is assessed on an ongoing basis and in some cases is not complete until
late August or early September. You will receive notification by mail
of what transfer credit has been awarded. Laurier Brantford has specific College Transfer Credit Policies for major colleges in Ontario. If you are coming from one of these programs, you should consult this resource.
- Even though you shouldn't register in courses where you may be receiving transfer credit, you may still select your electives and some required courses. It is recommended that you consult with an academic advisor to proceed with registration. If you planned to have two honours subjects, make sure you speak to an advisor about this as well.
- The advisor will provide information on courses required for your honours subject and override the registration system to facilitate course selection.
- You will now be able to register in your elective courses using LORIS. Consult the LORIS Online Registration guide for returning students about the registration process.
- After you receive notification of your transfer credit, you may need to consult again with your academic advisor to finalize your course selection.
Getting Your Student Identification Card
Once you are a confirmed Laurier student, you can arrange to receive your OneCard.
You will need textbooks for your classes once they are chosen. Brantford students should consult the Stedman Community Bookstore in the heart of the Research & Academic Centre.
Registering with the Library
Before you can take books out of the Laurier Library,
you must register the bar code on your OneCard with the library. You
can register your OneCard in person at the circulation desk on 2nd floor
of the Waterloo campus library or at the Brantford Public Library. You can also register online by completing the self-registration form.
