Program Transfer Request: Health Sciences Year 2
Complete this Request for Program Transfer to Year 2 Health Sciences form below. The deadline for consideration is May 1:
Your application will be reviewed by the Health Sciences Program Progression Committee; as part of its decision-making process, the Committee may request a letter from you indicating your reasons for wanting to transfer into the program. Decisions will be made on the basis of your final grades from Year 1. Because your application cannot be reviewed until final grades and all documentation have been reviewed, you may not learn the outcome of your request until June. Until a decision is made, you should proceed with course selection for your current program. If you are accepted into the program, space will be found for you in your required Health Sciences courses.
If your university studies have been negatively affected by extenuating circumstances, you may explain your situation on the form. You must also include third-party documentation (to be sent to the Office of the Registrar).
You will be notified once a decision has been made. If you have
questions about transferring into the program or wish to check the status
of your application, email Pat Young at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Transfer into the Health Sciences program (BSc) at Laurier is a competitive process, and space is extremely limited. A minimum GPA of 9.0 (high 70s) will be required to be considered for the HE program, but higher grades may be necessary, depending on space availability and the number/calibre of applicants. You must also have the average and courses required of students entering the program from high school (i.e., an overall high school average of low to mid 80s, in addition to the required courses at the appropriate grades).
