Graduates from a two-year general Arts and Science diploma program can apply to Languages within the Faculty of Arts on Laurier’s Waterloo campus. To be considered for admission to the Faculty of Arts, graduates must have an overall average of 75% in their program, as well as have achieved a minimum of 60% in a 4U English course or equivalent.
Transfer students admitted into our Languages program based on these requirements will be granted 6.0 credits* towards their Laurier degree. The specific transfer credits granted will be outlined in a transfer credit assessment that you will receive along with your offer letter. Students taking a typical full-time course load (5.0 credits per academic year) will take approximately three years to complete their four-year honours Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree.
To graduate with your BA in Languages, you will need to complete the following courses** at Laurier:
1.5 credits from the following (each course is worth 0.5 credit unless otherwise noted):
*Note: Laurier’s Languages program consists of a minimum of 15.5 required Languages courses (out of a total of 20.0 credits for a complete degree). Even with 6.0 transfer credits granted, you will still need to complete all 15.5 required courses in order to graduate with an honours BA in Languages.
**Note: A maximum of 6.0 100-level credits are allowed in total, including required courses, electives and transfer credits (typically 3.0 of the transfer credits granted through this agreement are at the 100-level).
If you have additional questions about your transition to Laurier, financial aid for transfer students or transfer credit evaluation, visit our transfer students website. If you are interested in transferring into this program with an academic history different than what is outlined above, apply using the 105 application form and your transfer credits will be assessed on an individual basis and reported to you, along with your offer letter, upon admission to Laurier.
Note: Not all program requirements are reflected in these pathway descriptions. It is the responsibility of the student to ensure that all academic program and course requirements have been met. Refer to regulations in the academic calendar and connect with an academic advisor once you have accepted your offer.
