Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

International Baccalaureate (IB) Admission Requirements

Applicants who are completing the IB Diploma will be considered for admission upon presenting passes with an acceptable standing in a minimum of six subjects, three of which must be at the higher level. The minimum total score requirement is 24. To view the specific IB requirements for your program of interest, visit the program page. Mathematical Studies is not accepted for programs that require a mathematics prerequisite. 

Laurier will accept IB predicted grades for early admission consideration. Applicants completing individual IB courses in conjunction with another educational system will be assessed on the basis of their entire academic record.

Transfer Credits for IB Courses

Transfer credits will be considered for higher level courses with a minimum score of five. Students who have completed the Theory of Knowledge and Extended Essay, with a minimum grade of B in each, will be eligible to receive 1.0 junior transfer credit. A maximum of 3.0 credits (equivalent to six courses) may be awarded, subject to program applicability. All required courses can be presented at either the higher or standard level.

Advanced Placement (AP) Admission Requirements

We welcome students with AP courses. Transfer credit will be awarded on a case-by-case basis for AP exams successfully completed with a minimum grade of four, up to a maximum of 3.0 credits. Applicants are encouraged to provide us with detailed course descriptions. Official College Board test results must be submitted for transfer credit assessment.
