Eligibility for Exchanges

You are able to go on exchange in your third, fourth or fifth year. Business students are restricted to studying abroad in their fourth year and it is recommended that Communication Studies students and Economics students go abroad in their third year.

To be eligible for exchange, you must:

  • Complete a minimum of 10 credits before participating.
  • Have a minimum GPA of 7.0, based on your cumulative GPA (meaning we will take into account all grades earned during your time at Laurier).
    • If your GPA is between 6.0 and 6.9, you must have a GPA Waiver Form signed by your academic advisor and submitted with your application. See the section on Supplemental Forms and Information for more information.
