You’re ready to apply to Laurier – that’s great! Most applicants must apply online through the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC), but there are some situations where you may follow an alternative application process. See "Other Application Procedures" below to see if that applies to you.
If you have any questions about your application, we want to help. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once you have picked your program, apply to Laurier online using the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC). On a single application form, you can apply for admission to three programs at Ontario universities. If you have any questions about using the OUAC application system, contact OUAC directly.
If you are applying to an undergraduate program, you will need to use the Undergraduate Application. If there were any periods of time that you were not enrolled in postsecondary studies since completing high school, you must complete the "List of Activities" section as part of your OUAC application.
If you are applying to more than one university, you should apply as normal through the Ontario Universities' Application Centre (OUAC) using the Undergraduate Application. You can indicate on your application that you are applying for part-time studies.
For either application method, you will be required to create an OUAC account (if you do not already have one). You may have only one OUAC account and can recover an old account through OUAC if necessary. If you have questions about your account or the application process, send your inquiries directly to OUAC.
You will need to request re-registration if you had a lapse in registration at the university for 18 months or greater or if you attended another postsecondary institution since your last registration at Laurier.
If you were required to withdraw from Laurier, you can request readmission 12 months after the date you were required to withdraw. Readmission is at the discretion of the faculty and is not guaranteed. Academic upgrading is required.
Lazaridis School of Business and Economics students are not eligible for readmission. You can apply to be readmitted to another program at the university.
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.
University of Waterloo students are able to take courses at Laurier through cross-registration. Follow the instructions on Laurier’s Enrolment Services: Cross-Registration with UW webpage.
You can request to enrol in Laurier courses to count towards a degree that is being taken at another university by obtaining a Letter of Permission from your institution. Follow the instructions on Laurier’s Enrolment Services: Visiting Students webpage.
