Admission Requirements: Year 1

Ontario Secondary School Diploma Applicants

Decisions on admission to Year 1 will normally be based on the following criteria:

  1. Completion of the OSSD with six Grade 12U and/or Grade 12M subjects. Students must meet the specific program requirements as outlined in the section, Programs of Study Degree Specific Requirements. An overall average of 60 percent on six Grade 12U and/or Grade 12M marks is the minimum required for admission consideration. However, a higher average will be required for admission to individual programs in which the demand for places by qualified applicants exceeds the supply of places available in those programs.
  2. Normally, the admission average will be based on the applicant's best six Grade 12U and/or Grade 12M marks.
  3. In some cases, the university will request: an academic standing based on the applicant's record for the last two or three years in school and/or a recommendation from the secondary school principal.
  4. Laurier provides applicants with an opportunity to submit an Applicant Background Summary (ABS) Form that includes scholarly and extracurricular information. This information may be taken into account during the admission assessment process by the appropriate admissions committee.

Ontario Applicants: Combination of OAC, Grade 12U and Grade 12M Courses

Applicants who submit an academic record that consists of courses from the OAC, Grade 12U and/or Grade 12M level curriculum will be considered equally provided they meet the program prerequisite requirements.
