Future Undergraduate Students

As a Laurier student (otherwise known as a Golden Hawk), you can count on three things: an excellent education, a welcoming community and a meaningful career in your future. This is an academic environment that exists to inspire you to be the best version of you, through real-world experience and diverse learning opportunities with Canada’s best professors.

Whether you're waiting to hear back on your application or you're still trying to find a program that's the right fit for you, there’s a place for you at Laurier. We’re contributing to a future that’s filled with possibilities and purpose – one where a whole community can be inspired together. You in?

A Degree Designed for You

From Science to Music, Business to Education and more, Laurier’s campuses are home to over 80 undergraduate programs. Once you've picked a major (or two!), you can add an option or minor, apply for co-op or get involved in research alongside faculty – there are so many ways to customize a degree all your own.

Maybe you’re already set on what you want to study. Or maybe you're still discovering what you’re passionate about. Either way, we want to help you find your place at Laurier.


Apply Now

You've done your research, picked your program(s) and are excited to find your place in the Laurier community. Now it's time to apply! Submit your application through the Ontario Universities' Application Centre (OUAC).

The deadline to apply is January 15, 2024 for Ontario high school students and April 1, 2024 for everyone else.

See Campus for Yourself

Lecture halls and classrooms, living arrangements and food options, workout spaces and lifestyle supports – it's all part of your Laurier experience, living and learning as a life-long Golden Hawk.

There’s no better way to see campus than through the eyes of a current student, so that’s exactly what you’re going to get on a Laurier tour.

Even if you're not 100% sure (yet!) that you'll call Laurier home, you definitely don’t want to miss out on anything that'll help you decide (and get an offer!). We'll only send you updates and insights you’ll actually want to read.

Explore Our Multi-Campus Community

One big, happy family – that's the Laurier way across all our campuses: Waterloo, Brantford and (new for fall 2024!) Milton. Find out how each of our campuses are unique – and what ties them all together – so you can pick the one that’s best for you.

Our Students Get Hired

Co-op is a popular topic at Laurier and for good reason. With a co-op employment rate of over 97% and a wide network of employers, every Laurier co-op student is guaranteed an opportunity to learn, lead and explore new skills.

Not only does participating in co-operative education mean you get to graduate with hands-on, career-ready experience, but it’s a chance to earn a healthy income between study terms.

Financing Your Education

University is no small investment, but we work hard to make sure you have everything you need to budget for this unforgettable life experience. From financial literacy training, to supports in finding a part-time job (on or off campus), to a wide range of scholarships and bursaries, you can go into first year confident that you’ll never be alone when it comes to figuring out your student finances.

You’re worth it.

Bold Dreams. Big Steps.

After wrapping up her double major in Biology and Chemistry in spring 2022, Kristin Cobbett was one of only 13 undergraduate students from around the world selected to complete an intensive astronautics program. Next step towards space travel? US Navy flight school where Kristin will take to the skies as an F-35 fighter pilot.
