Required Documents


Official Transcripts

Official transcripts from your previous secondary and/or post-secondary school(s) must be sent directly from the issuing institution in a sealed envelope that has not been opened prior to reaching the Admissions Office at Laurier.  You may mail the transcript yourself, however, it must be in an unopened envelope bearing the seal or stamp of the issuing institution. If original documents are written in a language other than English, you must provide notarized literal translations.

Transcripts must be up-to-date and bear the seal or stamp of the institution.  Such transcripts are NOT returnable.  If you are currently enrolled at the institution, we will require a final transcript after your year is completed.
Transcripts and other documents once submitted to Laurier become the property of Laurier and will not be returned to the student.
