Getting to know Laurier

Laurier lingo – glossary of terms Academic terms

Department

Fall – September to December Winter – January to April Spring – May to August Intersession – May to June Summer Session – July to August

Academic departments are approved by the Senate and Board of Governors (e.g., Department of Anthropology, Department of Physics & Computer Science, Department of History). Department can also refer to a non-academic area of the university.

Academic year

Faculty

The academic year in the undergraduate system consists of two four-month terms, typically from September to April. Students progress through four years of study in a typical Honours degree program. Most Honours degrees require 20.0 credits.

A faculty is a division of the University. At Laurier, we have the Faculty of Arts, Faculty of Music, Faculty of Science, Faculty of Education, Faculty of Graduate Studies and the School of Business & Economics. Faculty also refers to members of the teaching community.

Year 1 (0.0 – 5.0 credits) Year 2 (5.25 to 10.0 credits), Year 3 (10.25 to 15.0 credits), Year 4 (15.25 to 20.0 credits) Year 5 (double degree programs with 20.5+ credits)

Credit/weight and the symbols used to define them Courses are assigned a credit weight that varies from 0.25 to 1.0 credit or more. A one-term (four-month) course normally carries a weight of 0.5 credit. A course with a 1.0 credit weight is usually a full-year course taken September to April. The fall portion of a full-year course will carry 0.0 weight and 1.0 in the winter term. A 0.25 credit course is normally six weeks in duration. Course credit weights are used to calculate weighted averages and in calculation of tuition fees to be paid each term.

Grade Point (GP) – Grade Point Average (GPA) Courses at Laurier are graded according to a letter scale (A, B-, C+ etc.) and a letter grade is assigned a numeric value (GP) and converted to a 12-point grading system for average calculation (GPA). The GPA is a cumulative calculation from Year 1 onwards. Section 2 of this guide contains the grade scale, or refer to the University Undergraduate Academic Regulations – Grades – for additional information.

Major (Area of specialization) A major is the focused field of study or discipline within an honours program.

Minor A secondary area of concentration in an honours program only, requiring a sequence of at least 3.0 credits or equivalent in one subject as specified in the program description. Minors are not declared until applying to graduate.

Course load

Program

Part-time students take 0.5 – 1.75 credits per term. Full-time students take 2.0 – 3.25 credits per term. Normally, a student in an Honours program takes five half-credit courses (2.5) per term.

A program of study consists of a group of courses, generally a combination of required and elective courses, which leads to a degree. Honours program: minimum of 20.0 credits, normally taken over four academic years with a major area of specialization. General program: minimum of 15.0 credits, normally taken over three academic years.

Academic information

Academic information

Grading scales and Grade Point Average (GPA) Your grade point average (GPA) is calculated based on the grade point (GP) earned in each of your classes. As some classes are weighted differently, a 0.5 credit will be given half the weight of that earned in a 1.0 credit. Likewise the GP earned in a 0.25 credit will be given a quarter of the weight of that earned in a 1.0 credit. For example, a student who earned an A in a 1.0 credit course would be given an 11, a C- in a 0.5 credit course would be given a 2 (4 points/2) and a B+ in a 0.25 credit course would be given a 2.25 (9 points/4). To calculate the GPA, all grade points are added together and divided by the total weight of the credits. In this case the GPA would be 8.71 (15.25 grade points divided by 1.75 credits). Where letter grades are derived from percentages, the following conversion will be adopted unless the instructor announces otherwise, in writing, at the outset of a course.

Letter grades and their grade point equivalents are as follows:

Letter Grades

Grade Points

A+ A AB+ B BC+ C CD+ D DF XF*

12 11 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 0 0

Percentage Conversion 90-100 85-89 80-84 77-79 73-76 70-72 67-69 63-66 60-62 57-59 53-56 50-52 0-49 0-49

CHECK ONLINE Complete progression requirements for your program can be found at wlu.ca/calendars.

* Final exam not written - failed course.

Progression requirements

Where an X appears beside a final passing grade, the final examination was not written and the grade is based upon term work.

Each program has progression requirements comprised of specific requirements such as GPA, required courses or conditions (such as a time period) that a student must fulfill in order to proceed to the next year level. Failure to meet program progression requirements may result in a student being placed on academic probation or being removed from the program. The Undergraduate Calendar contains complete progression requirements for each program.

NEED HELP MEETING THE REQUIREMENTS? MEET WITH AN ADVISOR! wlu.ca/brantford/advising Don’t forget to meet with an Academic Advisor to develop an action plan and seek out help from the Learning Services Centre, if you think you will have trouble meeting your progression requirements.

Students with Transfer Credits and/or Advanced Standing Transfer credit refers to Laurier credit granted for post-secondary academic work completed at another institution. As often as possible, credit will be granted for a specific Laurier course (e.g. MA103). If a specific Laurier equivalent course is not available for work completed elsewhere, then an elective credit in the appropriate discipline will be granted (e.g. 0.5 junior unspecified Mathematics credit). If a specific equivalent course is not available, but there is significant overlap with the content of a Laurier course, then an exclusion may be applied (e.g. 0.5 junior Mathematics credit void if MA103 is taken). It is important to note that an exclusion is NOT a transfer credit, and has no credit value. The combination of a miscellaneous transfer credit plus an exclusion is designed to alert the student to the overlap in content with a specific course, while recognizing the credit weight for the course previously taken. If a student ultimately decides to take a course which has previously been listed as an exclusion, the original transfer credit would be removed from the student’s record. Students have one year from the point of Admission, or from a change of program, to make a request for re-assessment. This request must be made in writing to the Recruitment & Admissions Office at chooselaurier@wlu.ca.

Transfer Credits/Exclusions and Reading LORIS Transfer credits will be identified with a ‘CR’ (credit) under the grade column in the transfer credit page in LORIS, while exclusions will appear with ‘000’ under the grade column, in the same page (see screen shot below). It is important that you carefully review your transfer credits and ensure you know the difference between transfer credits and exclusions. You should also check any exclusions for Laurier courses you wish to take in the Undergraduate Academic Calendar to ensure there are no conflicts with transfer credits/exclusions that have been applied to your Laurier records.

Legend A - Transfer (Credit granted) B - Exclusion (No credit granted), transfer credit will be removed if taken

Transfer Credits and Registration Students with advanced standing or transfer credits from another institution may need specific academic advice for selecting courses before planning their class schedule and registering for courses on LORIS. If you require assistance with selecting your courses, or in registering for senior courses, please contact an academic advisor after you have confirmed your Offer of Admission. This guide provides course descriptions for first year courses only and therefore, it will be necessary to refer to the a) undergraduate calendar for course descriptions of upper year courses and b) class Schedule for course times to assist you in planning your conflict-free timetable. Transfer credit assessments are finalized throughout the summer upon receipt of the final transcript from your previous institution. Have your official transcript sent as quickly as possible to ensure the best selection of courses. To avoid a late registration charge, register in 100 level courses using LORIS. Once your transfer credit assessment is completed, contact an Academic Advisor for overrides to register in senior courses, or courses requiring pre-requisites. For example, if you have been granted credits for BI110 and BI111 and wish to take senior Biology courses, then you would contact an Academic Advisor for overrides to be able to register in the senior courses. Remember, adding/dropping or changing courses can be done up to the deadline in September.

Only register for courses listed in this guide, see page 24. Regularly check with an academic advisor regarding course selection and degree requirements.

Identified by section ‘BR’ on the class schedule, these courses are taught at the Brantford campus.

Class schedule

Elective

This is the master listing of all courses offered in a specific term. The class schedule contains all information about sections, lectures, labs, tutorials, day and time, room location and instructor names. Modifications to the class schedule are made on an ongoing basis before the start of term.

A course that is chosen outside of your degree requirements. The choice of elective may be subject to departmental approval or may have to be chosen from a stated group of courses in a program.

Closed course

An exclusion is a statement within a course description, that indicates a course or other level of attainment which, if already successfully completed, does not permit credit in another course, and which cannot be taken for credit concurrently with the other course. If an excluded course is completed, the first course is counted as a ‘repeat’ and credit in the first attempt is lost. It may also state that the course cannot be counted for credit in a program or toward a particular degree.

Note: The number of weeks listed above are teaching weeks. Final examinations follow.

A closed course means that the course has reached its limit for space. Please keep checking LORIS for space to become available.

Credit/weight and the symbols used to define them Courses are assigned a credit weight that varies from 0.25 to 1.0 credit or more. A one-term course normally carries a weight of 0.5 credit. A course with a 1.0 credit weight is usually a full-year course taken September – April. The fall portion of a full-year course will carry 0.0 weight and 1.0 in the winter term. In the program and course descriptions, the following symbols are displayed after the course number: My NOtes: ________________________ ________________________ ________________________ ________________________ ________________________ ________________________

Cross-registration An arrangement between Wilfrid Laurier University and the University of Waterloo which enables degree/diploma students of either university to take courses for credit at the other institution, paying tuition to the student’s home institution. This provides access to courses which are not offered at a student’s home institution. Refer to the Undergraduate Calendar - University Regulations chapter for further information.

Cross-listed course A course taught by one department with material overlapping another discipline significantly enough for the course to be labeled as both subjects (e.g. OL224 is cross-listed with CT224). The full description and prerequisites are given in the home

Exclusions

In Progress (IP) Refers to two-term or full-credit courses. Two-term courses, identified by an *, will say IP (In Progress) in the fall term. This is because the course is “in progress” during the fall and is not completed until April. The credit value in the fall term will be 0.0 and 1.0 in the winter term. LORIS will automatically register full-year courses in the winter term. You cannot make changes to full-year courses in the winter term.

Brantford Foundations Since its inception in 1999, Laurier Brantford has been committed to delivering core academic skills to undergraduates. This was evident from our earliest days when we enshrined these ideas in our foundational Contemporary Studies Program. The newly tailored core of “Brantford Foundation” (BF)


Section

More Laurier lingo – glossary of terms for planning your timetable courses encourages a discussion about skills and values that we hope will serve you well through your university career and beyond. The four courses in BF map out an essential foundation for all students entering programs at Brantford: an ability to master the specific skills needed for research in the humanities and social sciences, and the ability to think critically about the ideas that have shaped the contemporary world. BF190 and BF199 introduce students to key concepts in modern thought and then present challenges to those ideas. BF 290 and 299 prepare you in a very rigorous way to undertake the writing and research necessary for humanities and social sciences courses. We think these courses are foundational to all post-secondary studies, but we also think they recognize some core values of Laurier Brantford: that university disciplines can and should talk to each other; that students need to be rigorously well prepared for their studies and for future endeavours; and that we should pursue these goals in a committed community environment.

Junior course/senior course 100-level courses are referred to as junior courses. A course at the 200 – 499 level (e.g., CT430 or HI247*) is a senior course that is normally restricted to senior students unless otherwise specified in the course description.

Learning Management System (LMS) – Desire2Learn (D2L) Laurier uses MyLearningSpace (MyLS), powered by Desire2Learn (D2L), as its Learning Management System (LMS) for delivery of online learning courses as well as for support in classroom courses. The LMS allows instructors and administrators to organize and manage course content and students in an online environment.

Online Learning (OC) Online Learning courses are delivered online through MyLearningSpace (MyLS), Laurier’s learning management system (LMS), using additional technologies to engage learners. There is no in-class component to OC courses, so the time and location display as TBA. However, no day and time will ever be added on the class schedule. If you decide to take an OC course, you must also complete the OC form in order to receive the materials you will need.

Prerequisite A prerequisite states a condition that must be satisfied prior to registration in the course. This condition may consist of a) obtaining credit from another course or other courses, or b) having a particular registration status, such as registration in a program and/or in a specified year, or as a senior student (i.e. a student who has obtained 5.0 or more credits), or c) having a minimum GPA (e.g. thesis courses).

Section Some courses have multiple offerings at different days/times. A section is a particular day and time. Most sections are indicated by a letter or a combination of a letter and number (e.g. CC100 BR1, BR2, etc.).

Helpful tips! • DON’T WAIT!! Plan out your course selections on paper using the blank timetables provided before going online to register in courses. • Register for both fall and winter term courses now. • Register for courses before you attend Headstart. The add/change deadline is in September. • Schedule your required courses first based on your program or major before choosing your elective courses, and schedule single section courses before multi-sectioned courses. • Some courses require a lab and/or tutorial. All course components must fit ‘conflict-free’ in your timetable. • For multiple section courses, have ‘conflictfree’ alternatives chosen in case your preferred time slot is full. • Meet times (e.g. MW), indicate the lectures are held Monday and Wednesday, at the same time of day. Build your schedule with both days not just one. • Consider scheduling two classes back to back. Ten minutes between classes is enough time to get across campus. Unscheduled time in larger blocks provides flexibility for study group meetings, research or writing papers.

Registering in courses using LORIS

LORIS LORIS stands for Laurier Online Registration and Information System. You will hear this term often and will use LORIS to register for your courses, make changes to your course selection, print your schedule, view your grades, academic decisions, program confirmation, change your address, add your Social Insurance Number (for Income Tax forms) etc.

Course Record Number - CRN A unique course identifying number filled in by LORIS. In performing a class search, the CRN is not needed. Use the subject and course number only (e.g. AN 101).

Visit wlu.ca/lorisdemo You’ll find narrated slide presentations that will walk you through course registration and provide solutions to any problems that you may encounter.

?

Closed course Courses are closed by a department when they reach the classroom space limit. Please keep checking LORIS for space to become available.

Cross-Listed Courses A course taught by one department with material overlapping another discipline significantly enough for the course to labelled as both subjects (ie. JN101 is cross-listed with MX101). The full description and pre-requisites are given in the home department of the course. Cross-listed courses may be taken in either subject area, but credit will be earned only once.

Link error In LORIS, you will receive a link error message if you have a) selected a lecture without a corresponding required lab/tutorial, b) the course is full, c) you have a time conflict or d) if there is a campus restriction.

HELPFUL TIP When you register in a full-credit course in fall term, it will be automatically scheduled at the same time in winter term. These courses will show as 0.0 credit in fall term and 1.0 credit in winter.

Major/Field of Study restriction error This means the course or section is reserved for students in a specific program.

Override Permission If an exception should be warranted for a link error or major restriction error as described above, an ‘Override’ permission can be added to LORIS for the specific term/course situation in readiness for the next time you log in to LORIS. With the correct type of override in place, you will be able to register successfully. Most override permissions are granted by the Dean’s Office, lbacademicadvising@wlu.ca.

Reserved Seating Reserved seating is a feature used on LORIS to help ensure students are guaranteed space in specific courses that are required for their program. While using LORIS, you may notice that a course appears to have space remaining. However, these spaces may be set aside/ “Reserved” for students who require this specific course for their program.

Wait Listing If a department has authorized wait listing to be used and the course is full, you will be prompted to add yourself to the wait list. Read the instructions found at wlu.ca/documents/47043/how_to_use_waitlisting.doc Not all courses have a wait list.

IMPORTANT INFO If a course you want is closed, don’t give up on it. Course availability changes throughout the summer. Additional sections may be added. Check LORIS periodically until the add deadline in September.

IMPORTANT INFO During the summer, not all classrooms have been assigned. Check the class schedule before the term begins for updated information as well as any course changes. wlu.ca/brantford/timetable

This link error means that there is either a tutorial or a lab linked together with the lecture which you have not selected. To correct this situation, select the lecture and the tutorial or lab from the list when performing the class search. Follow the notes associated with the course in the Class Schedule about a tutorial or lab requirement. Lectures carry the credit weight, labs and tutorials carry 0.0 weight.

Time conflict This link error means that you have selected either a lecture or a tutorial/lab offered at the same time as another lecture, tutorial or lab, which you have already registered for. If you have checked the list of courses and cannot understand why you are getting this message, check the Class Schedule since the time may have changed from what is printed in this guide. To correct this, consult the Class Schedule, and either select the lecture at a different time, choose another course or drop the course causing the conflict.

PREQ and TEST Score Error This error means that you are attempting to register in a course that has a prerequisite. For example, before you can register in a Year 1 calculus course, you must write the online Calculus Preparation Evaluation (CPE). Students wishing to register in FR230 or FR231 should contact lbacademicadvising@wlu. ca.

Course/section is full You are attempting to register in a course that has already reached its capacity. Choose another course or you can keep checking LORIS, as students make changes during the summer and a space may open up. When searching for this course, you can see how many spots are available.

You have exceeded the maximum hours Year 1 students are limited to a maximum of 3.25 credits in a term. LORIS will not allow you to register in more than that. If you are registering in full-year courses, LORIS does not count the credit until winter term, so you may have a problem. Contact Service Laurier for help.

Changing a section of the same course to a new day/time If you attempt to change the time of a lecture, lab/ tutorial that you are already registered in, because they are linked together in LORIS, you will be dropped out of both. In order to re-enrol, you must follow the instructions on page 40 and below.

Attempting to re-enrol into a course you were already registered in, but dropped If you were registered in a course, dropped it and now want the same course and section, you will notice that there is no box for you to check when you do a class search. You must follow these instructions. 1. Go to the Add/Drop Classes screen where your list of courses is shown. 2. Find the “Dropped” course, in the drop down menu beside it, click on “Re-Enrol”. 3. Click on “Submit.”

Program and major/field of study restriction error Some programs have restrictions on certain courses or course sections in order to reserve space for students who are majoring in that particular program. Note: In some cases, restrictions on courses will be lifted on June 28, when all year levels have had an opportunity to register. In other cases, the restrictions are never lifted (i.e., Kinesiology courses are always restricted to students in the Kinesiology & Physical Education program).

Frequently asked questions

Registering in courses using LORIS

I have accepted my Offer of Admission with OUAC but I still cannot log in to LORIS. What am I doing wrong? You will not be able to proceed with your registration until you have accepted your Offer of Admission through the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC) and have a confirmation number. However, it can take up to one week for us to receive your confirmation. Until we receive your confirmation from OUAC, you will not be able to register online. Laurier will notify you by email, to the address provided on your application, when your confirmation of acceptance has been received. Laurier receives confirmations from OUAC every Tuesday and Thursday and you should be able to register on LORIS the day after we receive notice from OUAC.

What is a CRN Number? A CRN is a course number that is used internally only. When doing your class search, search by subject and course number only (i.e. Criminology 100). This is all the information you need to enter in order to find all sections, tutorials/labs for a specific course.

HELPFUL TIP Lectures are shown by letters, while labs/tutorials are numbers or a combination of both. Some 0.5 credit courses may be offered in both fall and winter terms. Register in one term only.

What is an Online Learning course and can I take one? Online Learning (OC) courses are completed online using Desire2Learn (also known as D2L), and according to a schedule provided. Year 1 students at both the Waterloo and Brantford campuses are allowed to take a limited number of OC courses, which are listed in this guide. If you decide to take an OC course, you must also complete the OC term form in order to receive the materials you will need.

What does the section BR mean? If a course has a section of BR this means the course is taught at the Brantford campus.

Should I be registering for winter term courses now? Absolutely. You should be registering for courses and/or labs/tutorials in both terms, keeping in mind that you can always make changes according to the schedule of academic dates.

HIT PRINT! Remember to print your schedule every time you make changes, and to check the Class Timetable periodically throughout the summer and before the term begins!

What does a field of study/major restriction error message mean? A field of study/major restriction error message means that the course or section you are attempting to register in is reserved for students in a specific program.

What is a link error and how do I fix it? If you receive a link error when registering online, it could be the result of a few problems. You may have selected a lecture that requires a corresponding required lab/tutorial, you may have a time conflict, there may be a campus restriction, the course may be full, it may not be available to Year 1 students or you may have chosen too many courses and exceeded the limit. Refer to the list of Link Error messages in this section for a solution.

What does IP mean when it is showing beside a course in fall term?

My NOtes:

Any course that is taught all year (September to April) will have an asterisk (*) beside it and will show as IP (In Progress) in the fall term. If you look at your schedule for winter term, it will show as Enrolled and show a credit value of 1.0. LORIS will automatically register you in this course in winter term.

Registering in courses using LORIS

Frequently asked questions A course I really want is full; what do I do now? Popular courses fill quickly so we encourage you to register early. If a course you want is closed because it is full, you should choose an alternate course keeping in mind that you can check throughout the summer and into September to see if space has opened up or a new section has been added. If a course required for your program is full, you should contact your academic advisor.

A course I want requires a tutorial or lab, how do I register for it? If you are registering in a course that requires a lab and/or tutorial, you must choose one that fits into your timetable and select it at the same time you select the lecture. If the lab/tutorial is linked to the lecture, and you make changes to either one, LORIS will drop you out of both the lab/tutorial and lecture because they are linked together. You choose a new lecture or tutorial and Add to Worksheet. You must then go to the activity window beside the lecture or tutorial that LORIS dropped and use the Re-Enrol code to re-enrol yourself. Make sure you Submit Changes. You are always advised to make sure this change has been done correctly by reviewing your courses on LORIS any time you make a change. Some courses require a lab/tutorial that will be chosen in September, during the class. In this case, you do not need to choose one when registering on LORIS. Section 3 of this guide notes those courses and indicates if a lab or tutorial is required when you register or if you sign up for one in class.

Will I receive a confirmation of registration in the mail? No, we do not mail registration forms since students are able to make changes 24/7 until the second week of term. Once you are satisfied with your course selection, it is your responsibility to print a copy of your schedule for your records. The LORIS instructions provide information on how to print your schedule.

How do I change just the tutorial or lab section of a course? Re-read page 40 Step 6.

Money Matters

Payment information and options - Frequently asked questions SERVICE LAURIER is your main point of contact for matters related to your financial account with Laurier.

The Business Office/Student Accounts also has a useful website, which can help answer many of your questions.

CONTACT INFO Location: Brantford campus, Grand River Hall, Room 202 Phone: 519.756.8228 x5885

When are tuition fees due? Fall 2013 FEES are DUE AUGUST 28, 2013 Tuition fees are assessed in mid-July and early August, so adding or dropping courses may change the amount due. Check your account status on LORIS at any time after the assessment date. The full amount should be paid by the due date to avoid paying late fees. Students will be de-registered late in the term for non-payment of fees. Winter 2014 FEES are DUE DECEMBER 16, 2013. These fees will be assessed and invoiced in late November.

Can I access my account information online?

Website: laurierbrantford.ca/ servicelaurier. Click on Business Office on the left side. Email: servicelaurierbrantford@wlu.ca Hours of Operation: Monday-Friday, 9:00am to 4:30pm.

Yes. Account balances will change as you add or drop courses, incur other charges or make payments. You can view up-to-date account information online via LORIS (http://telaris.wlu.ca). If you do not remember your PIN number, click the ‘Forgot PIN?’ button at the bottom of the screen before you are locked out.

How can I pay? There are three convenient ways to pay your fees: • Online bank transfer/telephone banking (your student ID# is your account number) • At most financial institutions in Canada with your invoice remittance form

IMPORTANT INFO

Fall 2013 FEES are DUE AUGUST 28, 2013. Winter 2014 FEES are DUE DECEMBER 16, 2013.

• In person at Service Laurier Brantford – Canadian cash, debit, certified and non-certified cheques and money orders Credit cards and post-dated cheques are not accepted. Please allow adequate processing time for the payment to reach the Business Office.

What are the incidental fees I’ve been assessed? A complete description of all the fees are available in the 2013-2013 Undergraduate Calendar (available online) or, on the Student Union website at wlusu.com.

Can I opt-out of any of these incidental fees?

STUDENT ACCOUNT Check your account summary on LORIS regularly to ensure account is paid in full.

Yes, if certain conditions are met and the request is processed by the opt-out deadlines. A complete list is available on the Business Office website (wlu.ca/busioff) by following the “Eligible opt-out fees” link. All other fees assessed are mandatory.

Do I have to pay if I’m getting OSAP? Ensure you submit your loan documents in time for your loan to be processed by the end of September. Processing time is 6-8 weeks. Failure to negotiate your OSAP loan during the first month of the term will result in late payment charges remaining on your account. If your OSAP loan is not sufficient to cover the assessed invoiced amount, you must pay the difference by the term fee due date.

My NOtes: ________________________ ________________________

If OSAP will be covering the assessed fees in full, no further payment is required by you.

________________________

OSAP related inquires should be directed to Service Laurier Brantford at x5885 or servicelaurierbrantford@wlu.ca.

Business Office/Student Accounts Payment information and options - Frequently asked questions How do I pay my fees through a Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP)?

IMPORTANT INFO Tuition and Incidental Fees Subject to Change 2013/2014 tuition and incidental fees will be approved by the Board of Governors in June 2013, and will be available online during the summer of 2013. Refer to the Financial Services section of the Undergraduate Calendar.

Contact your financial institution or financial advisor well in advance of the fees due date to learn the process and policy regarding withdrawing money from an RESP fund. You will need a “verification of enrolment” letter from the Office of the Registrar, and you must be registered in a full-time course load, in both terms, at the time of your request. The form is available on the Service Laurier Brantford website at laurierbrantford. ca/servicelaurier. Click on “Letter, Transcript and Outside Agency Form Completion” and follow the instructions. A payment is required for preparation of “verification of enrolment” letters. The fees due date cannot be extended to accommodate delays in the processing of an RESP withdrawal. Information that may be required by your financial institution includes: • • • • •

Name of academic institution Name of academic program & program length Year of current study (i.e. 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th) Academic Year Length (number of weeks of study in current academic year) Academic year start date

How do I pay my fees from a scholarship savings plan?

IMPORTANT INFO Account Disclosure forms can be completed online if you wish to authorize another individual to discuss your financial account with Laurier.

Many scholarship companies have their own “verification of registration” forms that will be sent to the plan contributor. You must be registered in a full-time course load, in both terms, at the time of your request. Information on the process can be found on the Service Laurier Brantford website at laurierbrantford.ca/servicelaurier. Click on “Letter, Transcript and Outside Agency Form Completion” and follow the instructions.

What if someone else is paying my tuition? Other parties or individuals are welcome to use the same payment methods outlined above for students. However, since the account is in your name, you are ultimately responsible for payment and any late payment charges. To ensure prompt payment, provide a copy of your account assessment from LORIS or the mailed invoice to the individual or other party (such as a sponsoring agency).

Can my parents/family members inquire about my financial account? No. As with any Laurier representative, Business Office staff CANNOT discuss particulars of your student account with anyone unless we have received your written authorization as we are bound by Canadian Privacy Legislation requirements. If you wish staff to discuss your account with anyone other than yourself, please make sure to fill out an online Account Disclosure Form at wlu.ca/businessoffice/consent. Once this form has been submitted, it will be valid during your entire time as a Laurier student. This authorization would apply to your financial account only.

How are my fees assessed? Fees are assessed and applied to your student account based on the number of courses you are registered in.

My NOtes: ________________________

At Laurier, you are charged on a per course basis up to a maximum of 2.0 credits. Subsequent courses are then charged a lesser dollar amount (approximately half), to adhere to government imposed tuition caps. Refer to the ‘Fee Chart’ on the Business Office website (wlu.ca/businessoffice/fees) for the amount of tuition you will be charged based on your course registration.

________________________

Can my parents/family members inquire about my financial account?

________________________

The University is bound by the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA), and therefore cannot discuss the financial particulars of your account unless we have your authorization to do so. An online Account Disclosure form found at wlu.ca/businessoffice/consent, can be completed and submitted online. This form is valid during your entire time as a Laurier student. Note: This authorization applies to your financial account only. The Office of the Registrar is happy to discuss policies and procedures in general; however, we cannot discuss particulars of your student record with anyone other than the student.

Payment information and options - Frequently asked questions I dropped a course, where’s my financial credit? Refer to the Business Office website for information on how course registration changes are reflected on your student account. If you have any questions about the assessment of your fees, contact Service Laurier Brantford at x5885 or servicelaurierbrantford@wlu.ca.

IMPORTANT INFO A hold on your account will prevent you from adding/ dropping courses.

What happens if I don’t pay my fees on time? Students who do not pay their balance by the due date will be charged a late payment fee of 1.25% per month. Payments not made in person should allow for adequate transit and processing time. If payment has not been received by the Laurier Business Office by the due date, it is considered late, and the student account will be charged the late payment fee. If your account remains unpaid one month into the term, a HOLD will be placed on your account. A HOLD prevents you from adding/dropping courses, registering for any upcoming terms, requesting transcripts or viewing your marks online. As well, you may be de-registered from school if fees remain unpaid. Clear HOLDs on your account by paying with cash, debit, certified cheque or online bank payment. Payments made by noncertified cheque will result in the HOLD remaining on your account for 21 days.

I’ve been de-registered, now what? Once a student has been de-registered from the current term’s courses due to unpaid fees, you are no longer considered a Laurier student and therefore are no longer considered eligible for grades, marks and/ or credits from the courses you were registered in. You are also no longer allowed to live in a University Residence. To reverse the de-registration, full payment must be made to the Business Office by either cash, debit, certified cheque or online/telephone banking. Full payment consists of all tuition fees and incidental amounts, the de-registration fee and late registration fees. Once the full payment has been made, you will receive a receipt to submit to the program department for a ‘Petition to Re-Register’. From here, a committee will determine the outcome of the petition.

NOTE If you drop a 5th half-credit course within the 55% penalty period (see drop dates below), you will not receive any adjustment in fees.

Petitioning cannot begin without full payment and receipt from the Business Office. If you do not reverse the de-registration, you will still be responsible for 55% of tuition fees as well as all incidental fees.

How do I receive/access my tuition tax receipt (T2202A) Tuition and Education tax receipts (T2202A) will be available at the end February for the previous tax year, online only (e.g. 2013 tax receipts will be available in February 2014). The T2202A form will be available to view and print from LORIS (http://telaris.wlu.ca). T4A’s (for Bursaries & Scholarships) will be mailed to your HOME address.
