Ontario Secondary School Applicants - 2017 Program Specific Requirements

A minimum of six 4U and/or 4M (U/C) courses are required for admission. Laurier will use the top six grades from these courses when calculating the admission average, unless otherwise noted. The following course requirements are listed according to the new Ontario curriculum.

NOTE: 4U 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 of MCB4U, MHF4U and MCV4U are taken, only the best two courses will be used for admission average calculations.
