New Laurier Students with Transfer Credits and Advanced Standing


December 2011

Students with advanced standing or transfer credits from another institution need specific academic advice for declaring program majors and selecting courses before planning their class schedule and registering for courses on LORIS. Make an appointment with your faculty advisor as soon as you confirm your Offer of Admission.

Students with advanced standing must use the Program Selection form, unless you have been admitted to a specified program. In some cases you will need to have the major approved by the department, so see your faculty advisor for instruction.

Transfer credit assessments are completed throughout the summer upon receipt of the final transcript from your previous institution. Have your official transcript sent to the Undergraduate Admissions Office as quickly as possible to ensure the best selection of courses. To avoid the late registration charge, register in 100 level courses using LORIS. Once your transfer credit assessment is completed, you must contact the academic advisor in each department for overrides to register in senior courses or courses require pre-requisites. Remember, adding/dropping or changing courses can be done up to the deadline in September.

For course descriptions, refer to the Undergraduate Calendar and the Class Schedule for course times to assist you in planning your conflict-free timetable.
