Hello, Aanii, Bonjour,

Laurentian University last week announced that it had terminated its federation agreement with Huntington University, Thorneloe University and the University of Sudbury. Students enrolled in programs and courses through the federated universities are Laurentian students, and Laurentian will continue to ensure that all students are provided with an academic path forward to completion of their degree, notwithstanding this change in the contractual federation relationship.  

We appreciate that students may have questions as to what this means with respect to requirements for graduation or completion of your programs.  

Laurentian is committed to ensuring that students enrolled in programs at any of the federated universities be able to complete their degree. Students will be offered a place within a similar or alternative program or course at Laurentian, and assistance will be available to help you navigate those choices. Laurentian has already undertaken a review of the academic path for each student enrolled in programs at any of the federated universities, and has developed options that are available for each student to consider. 

We want to reiterate that all federated university students are Laurentian students: credits you have earned at the federated universities, including in this current term, will count towards your Laurentian degree. 

We will update you further in the coming week on additional changes. 

Thank you, Miigwech, Merci,
Robert Haché, PhD
President and Vice-Chancellor
