Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.


After you apply to Laurier, you must send us your required documents so that we can assess your application.

Do not wait until the deadlines (listed below) to submit your required documents. The earlier we receive your documents, the earlier we can consider you for admission.
