Calculating your average – For admission and award purposes, Laurentian University calculates admission averages based on the top six final marks from grade 12 or level 4 U/M courses, regardless of prerequisites for the intended program of study. Eligibility for renewal will be based on full-time status in previous academic year (30 credits of which 24 credits must have been taken in the Fall/Winter term, remaining 6 must be taken in the spring term)

NOTE: Scholarships are paid on a May to April cycle. Amounts will be pro-rated based on the number of credits per semester.

Laurentian University Undergraduate Scholarship Policy

The deadline to apply for the Entrance Awards for the 2022-2023 academic year has passed. Successful candidates will be notified through their Applicant Portal by mid-May.

Former or current youth in the care of the Children’s Aid Society who are pursuing their first postsecondary degree are eligible for a bursary of 2,000 dollars. Students must meet the following conditions:

  • Must have been in extended society care in Ontario for a minimum of one year.
  • Must apply for funding through full-time or part-time OSAP each academic year.
  • Students must self-identify as coming from care through the OSAP application process and provide the supporting documentation.
  • Students registered in Part-Time Studies (less than 18 credits) will receive a prorated amount

Priority will be given to first degree, first time applicants studying at Laurentian University (collaborative programs are excluded). The bursary is limited to 10 students per academic year. Students must apply by September 1st of each year. A first disbursement of the bursary will be made during the Fall term, and a second will be made in the Winter term.

Should bursaries still be available, consideration will be given to students who apply by January 1st for the Winter term, and prorated based on the number of credits taken. The bursary is not available for the Spring terms.
