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.

Applying to Laurier

Laurier extends fair and empathetic consideration to applicants with a range of documented disabilities, including mobility, hearing, visual, learning, medical, chronic pain, acquired brain injuries and psychological/psychiatric disabilities. If you have achieved the minimum average for your program, you will not be adversely affected if you choose to disclose your disability to the Recruitment and Admissions office. All information you send will be kept confidential.

If you have extenuating circumstances, you should send a personal letter along with the appropriate supporting documentation to have your situation taken into consideration. If you have learning disabilities, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or acquired brain injury, be prepared to provide current psycho-educational or neuropsychological documentation. If you have sensory, mobility or medical disabilities, you should provide current medical documentation of the condition.

Please contact the Recruitment and Admissions office to verify the deadline for receiving supporting documentation.

Note: The documentation you submit to the Recruitment and Admissions office for special consideration is not kept at the Accessible Learning Centre (ALC). You must provide the ALC with appropriate documentation if you wish to register with us – you can find out how to do this below.  

Registering with the Accessible Learning Centre

If you’re in need of academic support services from the Accessible Learning Centre for classroom or examination accommodation, you are required to self-identify and provide current documentation from a registered healthcare professional (e.g. physician, psychologist or psychiatrist).

You can begin the intake process as soon as you accept an offer of admission to Laurier. It is in your best interest to begin the intake process as soon as possible.
