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.

When Are Tuition Fees Due?

Fall term fees are due in early September.

Your tuition invoice will appear online on LORIS. Look under the Student Services tab and select "View Student Invoice." Fall term tuition fees are assessed in mid-July and early August, so adding or dropping courses may change the amount due. Winter term fees are assessed and invoiced in late November. Check your account status on LORIS at any time after the assessment date. The full amount should be paid by the due date to avoid paying late fees.

How Can I Apply for Financial Aid?

Ontario Student Assistance Program

The Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) provides interest-free loans and grants to students who meet the financial need criteria. OSAP includes both federal and provincial loan and grant funding. Assistance is based on a variety of factors, including gross family income, the size of the family and student resources.

OSAP applications are submitted online. The OSAP Access Window is a valuable resource for planning your finances. It provides you with an estimate of OSAP funding for the upcoming year. The Access Window also includes information about the repayment requirements when you complete your studies.

Once electronically submitted, submit the completed forms along with all supporting documentation to Laurier’s Student Awards office. This can be done in person through Service Laurier, or by mail to:

Wilfrid Laurier University, Student Awards Office
75 University Avenue
Waterloo, Ontario
N2L 3C5

Students who are applying for the first time must also print their Master Student Financial Aid Agreement (MSFAA) form. You can take the completed MSFAA form to your closest designated Postal Office along with the required identification and banking information.

  • You are required to submit a new OSAP application each year.
  • You are encouraged to complete your OSAP application as early as possible to ensure your funding is available in September. OSAP applications submitted by mid-June will have funding available beginning in early September.
  • In mid-August, you should check our OSAP page or detailed instructions concerning transfer of OSAP funds.
