  • GPA is calculated using all courses taken during the fall, winter and spring terms of the previous academic year (September through August).
  • Only students in an approved 5 year Honours double degree program are eligible to be considered on year 4 academic achievement.
  • You must be registered with Laurier as your home institution.
  • You must have completed a minimum of 5.0 full credits in the previous fall, winter and spring terms at Laurier (September through August).
  • You must have completed two full time terms, therefore at least 2.0 credits in minimum two of the three terms in the previous academic year from September through August. (Co-op students may satisfy this requirement in any two of the previous fall, winter or spring terms).
  • To receive the funds in the current year, you must be registered in a full time course load over two full time academic terms in the current academic year.

President’s Gold Scholarship Program

President’s Gold Scholarships are granted upon admission and are renewable for subsequent academic years if all of the renewal requirements are met:

  • You must achieve a minimum of a 10.5 GPA in courses taken in the previous academic year (September through August).
  • You must have completed a minimum of 5.0 credits (or 10 half credits) in the previous academic year at Laurier (September through August).
  • If more than 5.0 credits are taken in an academic year, the GPA from all courses completed in an academic year will be used to determine renewal eligibility.
  • To be eligible for renewal, recipients of the President's Gold Scholarship must be registered full time in two of the three terms from September through August (therefore a minimum of 2.0 credits pert term, in at least 2 of the 3 terms in the prior academic year).
  • If the renewal requirements are not met in each academic year, the President's Gold Scholarship will not be renewed and cannot be renewed in a subsequent academic year. However, students would then automatically be assessed for an in-course scholarship.
