College Transfer Applicants

Students who have completed at least one year of college studies may be eligible for admission to programs offered at Laurentian University.

General Admission Requirements

Applicants must complete a minimum of one year of college studies and be in good academic standing with an overall average of 65% to be considered for admission.
 

#1 in Credit Transferability

College diplomas, degrees and other post-secondary accomplishments will be considered on an individual basis, to ensure that students transferring to Laurentian are given the maximum value for their credits. To help you make the most of your previous educational experience, we have transfer policies and articulation agreements with other institutions. These agreements are designed to provide better student mobility among the partners through formal recognition of credits/programs at each institution. 

For students who have completed a two or three-year diploma, Laurentian has many pathway agreements designed to enhance student mobility. If there is not a pathway agreement for your program, Laurentian offers admission with advanced standing as indicated in our credit transfer chart below.
