Note: Participants in this 2+2 agreement will not participate in the Indigenous Studies "in combination" program – only the independent Indigenous Studies program.
Students who have completed Lambton College's Liberal Studies Diploma with an Indigenous Studies specialization, or Mohawk College's General Arts and Science (University Transfer) Diploma with an Indigenous Specialization, with a minimum overall average of 75%, will be eligible for admission into Laurier's Honours Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Indigenous Studies program.
This articulation is a 2+2 agreement, meaning successful participants will transfer in with two years of college education and complete their university degree in only two additional years of study at Laurier.
