Join us at Laurier

Being 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.


Do you know what program you want to apply to? If not, have a browse through our program pages and discover the perfect program for you. Don’t forget to have a look at our options to see how you can tailor your degree to suit your academic and career interests.

Choosing a program is a big decision, but deciding which university you want to spend the next four years of your life at is an even bigger one! That’s why we encourage everyone to visit our campuses and get a feel for what life at Laurier is like. While you’re visiting, you can learn more about our programs and meet the current students who’ll be your peers.

Once you’ve picked the program you want to apply to, you can apply through the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC).

  • If you’re a current Ontario high school student, you’ll complete the 101 application form.
  • All other applicants, including transfer students, can apply using the 105 application form.

If you’d like, you can learn more about our specific requirements and read more detailed application procedures. If you're an international student, view your admission requirements in our international admissions toolkit.

If you are a student and you would like to grant consent for the release of information regarding your application to a third party (such as a parent or guardian), you must submit an authorization of information release form. To request this form, please email international@wlu.ca or chooselaurier@wlu.ca.
