Department/Faculty Responsibilities

All graduate students are enrolled in a department, a Faculty or in Martin Luther University College. The home academic unit is responsible for ensuring that all students have been fully informed about all the statements, guidelines and policies of the university as outlined in the Graduate Calendar.  The home academic unit should also ensure that changes in graduate regulations do not jeopardize the status of graduate students admitted under previous regulations.

The academic regulations governing a student's program are those in effect at the time of initial registration in the graduate program at Wilfrid Laurier University, except that when academic regulations change prior to the completion of the program, the student may choose to have the new regulations apply. All course and grade point average regulations of the new program must be followed.
