General Admission Requirements
The General Admission Requirements for individuals interested in completing one or two courses are based upon the applicant's academic background. For example, if you last attended high school, you will need to satisfy the high school or mature student general admission requirements found here. If you last attended a university (including Lakehead), you will need to satisfy the university transfer student general admission requirements found here. Regarding the prerequisite requirement, unless otherwise stated, applicants are expected to have completed a Grade 12 university-level English course or equivalent and meet Lakehead University's English language proficiency requirements. In some instances, applicants may be expected to complete a student profile form at the request of the Admissions Committee.
