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.


Ontario Secondary School Applicants

Admission decisions are made on an ongoing basis between December and May using available grade information. All offers of admission are conditional until final grades are received by the Recruitment and Admissions office in July. 

December and January Offers of Admission

  • Admission is based on your best five 3U/M courses.
  • You must be enrolled in all 4U/M prerequisite courses for your program.

February and March Offers of Admission

  • Admission is based on your best six 3U/M and/or 4U/M courses.
  • A minimum of three 4U/M courses is calculated as part of your best six.
  • You must be enrolled in all 4U/M prerequisite courses required for your program.

April and May Offers of Admission

  • Admission is based on your best six grade 4U/M courses, including second-semester midterm grades if you are completing your Grade 12 year.
  • Some programs include prerequisite courses in your admission average.

All Other Applicants

Admissions decisions are made on an ongoing basis. Applications are assessed when the Recruitment and Admissions office receives all required documents. An admission decision is typically made within three to four weeks of a complete application or longer for competitive programs.

How we Make Admissions Decisions

  • We reserve the right to consider additional academic information, which may impact the status of your application, including but not limited to: repeated courses, consistency, and when and where courses and/or tests were completed.
  • You will receive an admission decision on each application you submit to Laurier (up to a maximum of three programs).
  • If you are not eligible for admission into your program of choice, we will automatically assess your application to see if you qualify for admission into another program. To be considered for an alternate offer of admission, you will have to meet the entrance and program-specific requirements for the alternate program.
  • Laurier may utilize wait lists for competitive programs. Students who are placed on a wait list will also receive an offer of admission to an alternate program.

Multiple Offers of Admission

Students can apply to up to three programs at Laurier and will receive an admission decision on each application submitted through the Ontario Universities Application Centre (OUAC).
