Ontario High School Applicants
Applicants to our Bachelor of Engineering programs require the successful completion of at least six grade 12 4U/M courses with a minimum overall average of 70% and must qualify to obtain their OSSD. Specific grade 12 courses are as follows:
Grade 12 4U English
Grade 12 4U Advanced Functions
Grade 12 4U Physics
Grade 12 4U Chemistry
One additional Grade 12 4U Science or Mathematics
One Grade 12 4U/M courses
Applicants who have completed Advanced Placement courses in appropriate subjects with a grade of 4 or higher may receive transfer credits equivalent to a maximum of 12 credits. Applicants must also meet the admission requirements listed above as Advanced Placement courses are not accepted in place of the Grade 12 requirements.
Applicants who have completed the International Baccalaureate are eligible for admission provided they have achieved a minimum score of 28 and have fulfilled the diploma requirements (six subjects, minimum three at the higher level). Applicants may receive transfer credits for higher level courses with grades of 5 or higher. Applicants must submit the International Baccalaureate transcripts to the Office of Admissions for evaluation.
Canadian High School Applicants from Outside Ontario
Applicants require the successful completion of their secondary school diploma with the equivalent course requirements as Ontario applicants. Applicants from the Province of Quebec require a minimum of the first year of the Collège d’enseignement général et professionnel (CEGEP) program or grade 12 with a minimum 75% average. Applicants who have completed two or three years of a CEGEP program will be considered for admission with advanced standing.
High School Applicants from the United States of America
Applicants must have completed grade 12 from an accredited secondary school with a minimum overall B average and must include the equivalent subject requirements as applicants from Ontario High Schools, including English.
Applicants from Colleges of Applied Arts and Technology
Applicants who have completed a minimum of one year of college studies with a minimum overall C average may be eligible for admission. For students who have completed two or three year programs, Laurentian has many articulation agreements designed to enhance student mobility. For information with respect to articulation agreements, applicants should contact the Office of Admission.
Applicants from other Universities and Colleges
Applicants wishing to be considered for admission must submit official transcripts to the Office of Admissions which are assessed for admissibility and possible transfer of credits.
Applicants wishing to be considered as a mature student must:
be 21 years old or older prior to the first day of classes of the term to which they applied
have not attended any secondary or postsecondary institution for at least two years
submit a letter outlining the reasons for pursuing university studies
submit a resume or CV specifying current education, interests, and work experience
Mature students are usually only admitted to the Liberal Science program, but may apply to other programs in Science and Engineering after one year of study.
Applicants from Other Countries
Applicants from other countries wishing to be considered for admission must submit official transcripts and supporting documents to the Office of Admissions. These documents should be submitted in their original language as well as an official translation into English or French.
Applicants to English language programs who have not completed at least three years of English academic study, must also present an English-language proficiency test result (TOEFL, IELTS, CAEL or MELAB) with the required minimum score. Applicants who do not meet the minimum and who are otherwise admissible are offered the opportunity to enrol in Laurentian’s English Academic Preparation (EAP) Program. Please refer to the website of Laurentian International for more details.
For Current Students
The degree options listed below are for the upcoming academic year, not the current academic year. If you are a current student looking for which courses to take in order to complete your degree options from a previous academic year's curriculum, please consult with an academic advisor.
To be in good academic standing and progress in the B.Eng. program, a student must:
- Meet all conditions of admission
- Not fail more than 6 credits in any one year
- Achieve an overall average of 3.5 GPA (or C letter grade or 60%) in all courses in the previous year (or previous 30 consecutive credits)
A student is subject to a one year probationary period for failure to meet any of the above criteria under academic standing.
A student is required to withdraw from the Bharti School of Engineering if he or she:
- Does not satisfy all conditions after one probationary year or 30 consecutive credits
- Fails 42 credits or more
- Has not achieved good academic standing in two consecutive years or 60 consecutive credits
- Fails to obtain the minimum academic grade and satisfactory lab performance where appropriate in a course on a third attempt
A student who is required to withdraw may petition the Senate Committee on Acadaemic Regulations and Awards for readmission after one calendar year. Such an appeal should have a recommendation from the director of the school before being considered by the committee.
Students in good academic standing who choose to discontinue their studies at the end of the first or any other year, with successful completion of that year, may apply for readmission with advanced standing. Cases are considered on an individual basis.
Civil Engineering (First Two Years)
Note: Laurentian University has no articulation agreements with other universities to complete the Civil Engineering degree. Students should contact the universities to which they wish to transfer to determine their admissibility and which courses will be transferable.
