Students admitted to the Faculty of Music with unusually extensive training in performance, music history, and/or music theory, but without corresponding university credits, may earn credit for certain courses in these areas through satisfactory completion of validating examinations. The examinations should be completed within one year of the date of admission to Laurier. Students will not receive grades for courses for which credit is earned by validating examination.
Students will not receive credit for validating examinations until they have completed a course at this university. To write a validating examination, students must receive permission from the dean and apply to the Office of the Registrar. A non-refundable fee is charged.
