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.

Work and Learn: Part-Time Studies

Coming back to school part-time is a rewarding challenge. Many of our degrees, at both the undergraduate and graduate level, can be completed part-time. We offer a wide variety of in-class and online course offerings throughout the year, including the spring and summer terms, so you can work towards your degree year-round.

As a prospective part-time student, you can apply to a program one of two ways depending on your interests and your background:

  1. If you are a senior citizen or adult student interested in simply starting with one or two courses at a time, a Laurier staff member, or someone interested in completing one or two degree courses for personal or professional upgrading, you should use our part-time application
    • Wilfrid Laurier University has contracted with the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC) to provide application processing services. When you begin the application process, you will be transferred to the OUAC website where you will complete and submit your application. You will be required to create and OUAC account (if you do not already have one). You may have only one OUAC account and should direct any application process questions to the OUAC.
  2. If you are not one of the above applicants, then you should apply through the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre. Visit our undergraduate admissions toolkit or graduate admissions toolkit for help on the application process.

If you have questions about how your individual circumstances might impact the application process, contact and we will be happy to assist you.

Note: Not all programs can be completed part-time. Contact the advisor of your program of interest to find out whether or not the program is available on a part-time basis.

Depending on your program, you can take both in-class and online courses to complete your degree.
