In order for us to assess your eligibility for admission, Laurier requires the following documentation. Do not wait until the deadlines (listed below) to submit your documents; the earlier we receive your documents, the earlier we can consider you for admission.
We may also request additional supporting documents at the discretion of the Recruitment and Admissions office, including academic or English language tests.
Your admission assessment is based primarily on your academic transcripts. Laurier welcomes information about your extracurricular activities, which could be used for admission consideration. This information may be submitted through the submission of the Applicant Background Summary (ABS) form. You can submit the form only after you apply to Laurier.
If you have previously attended a post-secondary institution, we require detailed information about all post-secondary courses you have taken in order to assess your eligibility for transfer credits. Email these to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Acceptable types of course descriptions include:
If you are currently not in full-time studies, or if there are gaps in your academic history, ensure you fully complete the “background information” section on the online application. You can also provide our International Recruitment and Admissions office with a resume or activity list by email to email@example.com.
Required documents must be submitted within two weeks from the date you applied.
The deadline to have all official, final documents to our International Recruitment and Admissions Office is July 15 for a September (fall term) start, unless otherwise stated on your offer of admission letter.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to communicate when your documents will be arriving. Your offer of admission may be withdrawn if we do not receive your documentation by the deadline.
After you apply, you will receive instructions on how to access Laurier's Online Registration and Information System (LORIS). You can view your list of required documents and submit your documents online using LORIS.
Note: If you have submitted any required documents via mail and do not see them on your LORIS account, we could still be processing them.
In many cases, we can make an admission decision using an unofficial, scanned copy of your document(s), which you can submit online through your LORIS account (see instructions below).
If you are admitted to the university and accept your offer, you must arrange to have your official final documents sent to Laurier directly from the issuing institution in a sealed and stamped envelope.
Laurier does not confirm the receipt of documents by phone or email. Use your LORIS account to confirm this information.
Final official documents should be mailed to Laurier’s International Recruitment and Admissions Office directly from the issuing institution. Unofficial documents can be submitted using your LORIS account.
