Ontario Secondary School Applicants: Program Specific Requirements


Admissions - Applicants for Fall 2014 Entry

A minimum of 6 Grade 12U and/or Grade 12M (U/C) courses are required for admission. Laurier will use the top 6 grades from these courses when calculating the admission average, unless otherwise noted. The following course requirements are listed according to the New Ontario Curriculum.

PLEASE NOTE: Grade 12U English must be at a minimum of 60% for all programs at Laurier unless otherwise specified. Applicants must also meet program-specific requirements; all required courses, listed below, must be at a minimum of 60% unless otherwise specified.

All programs have a minimum final overall average of 70.0% unless otherwise stated (as some may require higher final averages). This is outlined on the offer of admission.

**Due to the overlap in curriculum, if all three MCB4U, MHF4U and MCV4U are taken, only the best two courses will be used for admission average calculations.
