The School of Sports Administration is a business school. Therefore, students should present themselves in a way that is consistent with the professional standards expected in the industries SPAD serves. When attending any meetings, classes, or other professional interactions students should present themselves in a professional manner that is reflective of how they hope to be perceived. When meeting a guest of the program or attending an interview, or other event in a professional setting, traditional business attire is strongly recommended.
Some general guidelines one might want to also consider include: never wear any hats indoors (unless for religious purposes), avoid white socks with dress shoes, and good personal hygiene while avoiding strong perfumes and make-up are good practices to adopt.
Transfer and Re-Admission
Any student wishing to transfer from a program at Laurentian University to the School of Sports Administration must contact the Admissions Office within the Laurentian University Registrar’s Office. The student will need to complete a transfer request prior to February 1 in order to be considered for admission into the BCom SPAD for the following September. Any student that was removed from or left SPAD must follow the same transfer process as other Laurentian University students.
The Admissions Office will inform the Director of the School of Sports Administration of all qualified applicants. The decision will be based on availability of space in the program and in competition with all internal and external applications. Due to the external application process taking until June, it may take until early June to determine if there is room for accepting transfer students. Those with a strong academic application though will likely be admitted in February.
Students who are not in good academic standing are considered to be on academic probation. If a student is not in good academic standing for two consecutive school years, they will be removed from the SPAD program. Students may reapply for admission to the program after a year removed from the program, but they must be in good academic standing in order to be considered for readmission.
Good academic standing in SPAD is defined as at least a grade point average of 4 and no more than 3 credits of failure in the previous 30 credits taken. If a student fails a course while on academic probation, they will be removed from the program.
