University admissions is a complicated topic. That's why we created our Admissions Top Questions video series. Recruitment and Admissions experts will answer the questions you already have and some you didn't know you should ask - all in less than 5 minutes.
New videos posted the first week of every month.

If you are a student and you would like to grant consent for the release of information regarding your application to a third party (such as a parent or guardian), you must submit an authorization of information release form. To request this form, email email@example.com.
International students who would like to grant consent for the release of information to their education agent can find and complete the Information Release Form in their application portal. The form will be available after you apply.
It is important to check your email often because we will be communicating with you by email over the next few months.
The main way that Laurier will communicate with you is through the personal email address you used on your OUAC application.
Once your myLaurier account is ready for activation, we’ll send you an email to the personal email address you used on your application. You can then access your Laurier email by doing the following:
If you have trouble logging in, contact the ICT Student Service Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You are strongly encouraged to enable multi-factor authentication (MFA) to optimize the security of your Laurier single sign-on account (MFA will become mandatory as of May 17, 2022). You will be prompted to register for MFA and will have several authentication options including text, push notifications, a security key and the MS Authenticator app. To learn more about the reasons behind MFA (and how to set it up), visit our webpage.
You will also need to register for password self-service by following the instructions below. This will allow you to reset your password or unlock your account in the future.

Once you have applied to Laurier, you will receive an email from us confirming that we have received your application.
Application information is processed in the order in which it is received from OUAC. If you do not receive a confirmation message from us within five days of applying, please check your junk mail first. If you have still not received our email, let us know and we will send you a confirmation. Call 519.884.0710 x3385 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You'll need to use your applicant portal to complete your application. Your confirmation of application email will contain your portal account login information.
You will be able to view your application status online through your portal account, in the 'My Applications' tab. You should also use your portal to view a list of documents we require for your application and to view when we receive your documents.
You'll find a list of documents we require to assess your application in the applicant portal. These may include transcripts and/or proof of English proficiency. Transcripts and required documents must be submitted electronically by fall applicants no later than May 12, 2024. If you're an Ontario high school applicant, don't worry – your school will send us your transcripts. If you're applying to start in a term other than fall, please review our complete list of relevant dates and deadlines.
You should submit an Applicant Background Summary (ABS) form within two weeks of applying. The last date to submit is April 25, 2024.
You are also encouraged to apply for an entrance bursary. You could be eligible to receive up to $1,500 for your first year at Laurier. The deadline to apply is April 24, 2024.
