Cross-Registration with Wilfrid Laurier University
Printable Version Printable Version

Undergraduate degree students enrolled in a degree program at the University of Waterloo may take advantage of courses offered by Wilfrid Laurier University (Laurier) through a process called cross-registration.

University of Waterloo students who are registered in an academic plan or option that routinely uses courses at Laurier will be able to enrol in those courses via Quest. Students in other plans, or who wish to cross-register in other courses, must carefully follow the instructions on the Undergraduate Studies Cross-Registration Form before submitting their request to the Registrar's Office. Post- and non-degree students are normally not eligible to enrol and should consult with the Registrar's Office before proceeding. All cross-registration requests are subject to the approval of the student's academic advisor and space availability. Normally, approval will not be given to requests where the equivalent course is available at the home university.

Students must pay all fees at the University of Waterloo regardless of the number of courses taken by cross-registration. The prerequisites for courses and grading system of Laurier apply. Grades are reported to the University of Waterloo based on the Laurier grading system and are combined with the results of the student's other courses to complete their academic record. A student's overall academic standing is determined solely by the University of Waterloo. See Faculty sections for specific information regarding courses taken by cross-registration at Laurier.

Regulations concerning the dates for adding or dropping a course as well as petitions for cross-registered students are governed by the student's home institution. Students should be careful to note the grading system, drop/add deadlines, and examination schedules of each university as they may not coincide. Detailed instructions are available on the cross-registration form.
