Applying to Laurier

Wilfrid Laurier University extends fair and empathetic consideration to applicants with documented mobility, hearing, visual, learning, medical, chronic pain, acquired brain injuries and psychological/psychiatric disabilities. Applicants who fall within 5 percent of the established cut-off average for their program, and who provide the requested supporting documentation to the Admission Office, will be considered by the appropriate Admissions Committee on an individual basis. Students who choose to disclose their disability to the Admissions Office, including those who have achieved the minimum average for their program, will not be adversely affected. All information sent to the Admissions Office will be kept confidential.


Students with extenuating circumstances should send a personal letter along with the appropriate supporting documentation to have their situation taken into consideration. Students with learning disabilities, ADHD, or acquired brain injury should be prepared to provide current psycho-educational or neuro-psychological documentation. Students with sensory, mobility or medical disabilities should provide current medical documentation of the condition.


Please contact the Admissions Office to verify their deadline for receiving supporting documentation. They can be reached by email at: or by phone at: 519-884-0710 ext. 3351. For other information regarding the admissions process, please visit the following link:


Please Note: The documentation you submit to the Admissions Office for special consideration is NOT kept at the Accessible Learning Centre. Please provide the ALC with appropriate documentation if you wish to register with the Centre.
