Basic Requirements for Admission
Laurier calculates admission averages by taking the average of the top six 4U/M courses (or equivalent). All other required courses must be at a minimum of 60%, unless otherwise specified. Many programs also require a special minimum average for science courses; this average is calculated based on the prerequisite math and science courses for each program. For admission to BA/BEd, BBA, or business-related double degree programs, prerequisite courses will be included in the admission average.

Failed and Repeated Courses; Night Courses
When an applicant has repeated a course, the highest grade will be used in calculating the student's average with no penalty. Courses taken at night school/summer school are considered equivalent to regular daytime courses.

Timing and Process for Admission Decisions
Wilfrid Laurier University will begin to send out offers of admission to the highest qualified applicants in January and continuing through May. Early conditional offers of admission are subject to applicants attaining specific prerequisite course requirement(s), completing Ontario Secondary School Diploma requirements and meeting a specific minimum final average. The admission average is based on the best six 4U/M courses (or equivalent). Students should check with the university admissions secondary school applicant page (www.wlu.ca/admissions/) for information and updates.
