Ontario secondary school students seeking university admission should have six U or M courses with a minimum overall average of 70 percent and Grade 12 U English with a minimum grade of 60 percent. Because enrolment is limited, the minimum grades required may be higher. Please refer to the University Calendar for further details.
HOW TO APPLY TO UNIVERSITY
For students currently in an Ontario secondary school: Obtain an application form (OUAC 101) or PIN number (for on-line applications) from your guidance office. The OUAC 101 application form is to be completed and submitted to the Ontario Universities' Application Centre (OUAC) through your secondary school.
For all other students: Complete the on-line application form available through the Ontario Universities' Application Centre (OUAC). A paper copy of the application form can be obtained by contacting the OUAC at (519) 823-1063 or email@example.com. If using the paper application, mail the completed form to the OUAC (address is on the form). Do NOT mail your application to Laurier.
Applicants wishing to transfer from another university, or who already have university degrees, may, at the discretion of Wilfrid Laurier University, be granted transfer credit for courses in which satisfactory grades have been achieved. In order to earn an Honours degree, at least 10 two-term courses must be completed at this University. For admission we will require official final transcripts, an audition, and an interview. The determination of transfer credit will be based on assessment of transcripts and on placement tests given in September.
ADMISSION TO MUSIC THERAPY
Students may apply for admission to the Honours Bachelor of Music Therapy program only after completing two years of the Honours BMus program. Therefore, applicants to first year of university who are interested in Music Therapy should apply to the Honours BMus program; there is no difference in first-year admission requirements.
The Faculty of Music welcomes applications from qualified students from other countries. Please refer to the WLU Undergraduate Calendar or web site for admission requirements.
OFFER OF ADMISSION
Admission to the Music Faculty is based primarily on the audition, but applicants must also have satisfactory academic records and satisfactory scores on the theory placement test.
Official offers of admission are issued only by the Office of the Registrar.
For applicants who are not currently enrolled in an Ontario secondary school, admission status is determined upon completion of the audition and the receipt of official transcripts from the current and previous schools attended.
