Course Description

The Strategies for Academic Success (SAS) Program is available for any student that has been required to withdraw as a method for readmission to Laurier. This includes students from all programs across both the Waterloo campus and Brantford campus.  The SAS program is led by a professional team, offering constant support, mentoring, academic advising and mandatory coursework. For more information about the program specifics please visit https://students.wlu.ca/sas 

Course Outline

The program runs over two academic terms (Fall/Winter, or Winter/Spring) and includes the following schedule: 

  • Term 1: SASP-001 (first mandatory course) + 0.5-elective course 

  • Term 2: AF 224 (second mandatory course) + 1.0 elective courses 

SASP-001 will be delivered remotely, meaning we will meet virtually but at a scheduled meeting time each week.  AF 224 will be delivered on-campus should public health policies allowed a return to campus.  Elective courses and other program elements could have both in-person and online components, depending on the selections made.  Information will be given on how to select these once registration is completed.  

A $1200.00 fee will be collected upon registration. This is a program fee, covering participation in the program and the non-credit SASP-001 course. You will be required to pay standard tuition and fees for all for-credit courses you register in during the program. In term 1 students will register in one (1) for-credit class; in term 2 students will register in three (3) including the 2nd mandatory SAS class for a total of 1.5 credits, thus qualifying for application to OSAP. Students will pay standard incidental fees each semester, providing access to all on-campus student resources.   


Please only select one section to register for. If you select sections A or B you will be automatically enrolled in both the Fall and Winter terms, if you select sections C or D you will automatically be enrolled in both the Winter and Spring terms.

Course fee: $1200.00  

Please note there is an $150 cancelation fee and refunds will not be issued once the program begins each term.
