Hello Renee, it is a course they take with us at Laurentian. It can count as an elective course in their degree of choice as well.
LUL_Mélanie Racine

Thank you Jordyn! The admissions requirements would not change. All our requirements are always based on Ontario High School curriculum but students can find ways to meet the requirements after going to other post-secondary institutions (College or University).
