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.

Additional Qualification (AQ) courses are a combination of face-to-face and online formats, but distribution varies from course to course to suit learning styles and schedules. Face-to-face hours provide immediate feedback and answers to questions in a personalized learning environment. Online components allow participants to structure their learning around individual commitments and in a convenient location.

Browse our list of available AQ courses and register for the courses you require.

Fall/Winter 2018/19

Registration is now closed for Fall 2018 and Fall/Winter 2018/2019. Intersession courses (April-June) will be posted in early 2019.
