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.

You’re ready to apply to Laurier – that’s great! Most applicants must apply online through the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC), but there are some situations where you may follow an alternative application process. See "Other Application Procedures" below to see if that applies to you.

If you have any questions about your application, we want to help. Email us at

Apply Online through OUAC

Once you have picked your program, apply to Laurier online using the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC). On a single application form, you can apply for admission to three programs at Ontario universities. If you have any questions about using the OUAC application system, contact OUAC directly.

Ontario High School Applicants

If you currently study at an Ontario high school, apply using the 101 application

All Other Applicants

If you do not currently attend an Ontario high school, you apply using the 105 application. This includes mature applicants, transfer applicants, applicants from other Canadian high schools, international students, and any other type of applicant.

If there were any periods of time that you were not enrolled in postsecondary studies since completing high school, you must complete the "List of Activities" section as part of your OUAC application.

Apply to the LEAF Program

The Laurier English and Academic Foundation (LEAF) program is an academic English program offered at our Brantford campus. Completing the LEAF program is one way to meet our English-proficiency requirement.

You must submit a minimum score on an English-language test to be admitted to the LEAF program.

If you are eligible for your academic program, but do not meet our English-proficiency requirement, you will receive a conditional offer of admission with a condition to submit evidence of your English proficiency. One of the options for meeting this requirement is to completion of the LEAF program.

How to Apply

  • Apply using the Laurier LEAF application. You must select your academic program and apply for the term that you want to begin your LEAF program studies.
    • Note: do not apply for LEAF if you do not have an ELP test score. 
  • Apply to an academic program using the appropriate OUAC application. Once you receive a conditional offer of admission, you may accept your offer and register in the LEAF program using your applicant portal.
