Our official means of communication is with your Laurier email accountStudents are expected to regularly check their Laurier email account for important notices from the university community. Students are required to send emails to official members of the university community from their Laurier email account in order to verify authenticity and ensure delivery. Emails sent from non-Laurier accounts, such as hotmail, may be identified as spam and not delivered. Furthermore, it is impossible to determine whether the emails received from these non-Laurier accounts are coming from the person they claim to be from. Your co-operation is appreciated.

The Faculty of Science is composed of the Departments of Biology, Chemistry, Kinesiology & Physical Education, Mathematics, Physics & Computer Science, and Psychology. Honours (four-year) and general (three-year) programs leading to both the Bachelor of Science (BSc) and Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree are available. In addition, students may choose to complete, as secondary programs, one or more of a large number of available options and minors. The successful completion of a secondary program will be recognized on the student's transcript at graduation.

Concurrent honours degree programs offered by the Faculty of Science and the School of Business & Economics are available which may be completed and result in the awarding of two undergraduate degrees.
