If you already have university or college education, you may be eligible for transfer credit from Laurier. Transfer credit means that the courses you completed at another university or college can be used towards your Laurier degree.
An admissions coordinator will determine if you are eligible for transfer credit based on the official transcripts and official course descriptions that you provide.
Factors that affect transfer credit include:
Laurier recognizes that while learning experiences may differ in a variety of ways, specific course content may be virtually equivalent in terms of content and rigour. If a specific equivalent to a course is not available at Laurier, we will attempt to award you an “unspecified” elective credit.
The assessment of your transfer credits will be made once you have confirmed and met all of the conditions outlined in your Offer of Admission.
Transfer credit will not normally be awarded for practical, clinical or teacher education courses.
You must have 60% or higher in a course to be awarded transfer credit in a subject within your program major. Subjects outside of your program major in which you have achieved less than 60% but more than 50% may be awarded transfer credit at the discretion of the appropriate admissions committee.
Where transfer credit is being assessed from another university, prior failures will also be counted. At Laurier, you are permitted a maximum of 5.0 credits in failures and prior failures will be counted towards this maximum. If you reach the maximum, you will be required to withdraw from the university.
