Re-admission of Students Required to Withdraw

If you were required to withdraw from any post-secondary institution, including Laurier, you may apply for readmission to begin studies not earlier than 12 months from the date of required withdrawal. Previous Laurier students must re-apply by completing either a:

Request for Re-admission - Faculty of Arts, Laurier Brantford, or the Faculty of Science, OR
Request for Re-admission - School of Business & Economics

Applicants who have been required to withdraw from any other post-secondary institution must complete an Application for Admission (Part-time studies available only).

Your request will be reviewed by the appropriate admissions committee. The admissions committee requires that you supply the Admissions Office, along with the appropriate academic documents, a letter written by you, which outlines the following:

  1. the program you wish to enter (or re-enter);
  2. the reasons for your previous academic performance;
  3. why you wish to attend Wilfrid Laurier University and why you think you will be more successful academically at this time;
  4. details concerning your activities or work experience since your last attendance at school.

Readmission will be at the discretion of the admissions committee. Normally academic upgrading is required (i.e. two academic college credits at a minimum of A- or better, in each course). Courses taken for upgrading purposes must be pre-approved. Contact the Admissions Officer for the Faculty you will be re-applying to for further information.

Once readmitted, candidates must successfully complete 2.0 credits (or equivalent) by part-time study with a GPA of 5.00 (C) within two years, but are limited to taking 2.0 credits (or equivalent) until academic probation is cleared. Upon clearing probation they may then proceed into full-time or part-time studies in accordance with academic regulations.
