Fees for Additional Courses

Upon receipt of a recommendation from graduate co-ordinators, students may be authorized by the dean of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies to take undergraduate courses at Laurier for which no additional fee will be assessed if at least one of the following conditions exists:

  • in the judgment of the student's advisory committee and/or the graduate co-ordinator, the student would benefit from the course(s) in order to write the dissertation/thesis/research project;
  • the student's undergraduate training is such that clearly there is need for enrichment in some area;
  • a specific graduate course requires prerequisite knowledge which the student does not have and must acquire in order to complete the course.

This arrangement will be limited to one course per term and to a maximum of three half-credit courses during the full tenure of graduate studies for any graduate student at Laurier.

Students wishing to take additional courses which do not meet the above criteria will be charged for these courses at the general graduate student rate.
