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.

Accept Your Offer

The deadline to accept your offer is June 1, 2023, at 11:59 p.m. ET, unless another date is stated on your offer letter. This webpage contains important instructions on how to accept your offer of admission.

After you accept your offer, you will receive a confirmation email from us, confirming your enrolment at the university.

How to Accept Your Offer

You must accept your offer of admission through the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC) website.

There are several types of OUAC applications. The instructions below are intended to help you determine where to accept your offer. If you need further assistance, please email

It’s Time for Your Laurier Moment

You have a big decision ahead of you, so we asked real students to share their personal experience to help you decide whether Laurier is the place for you. That’s what #MyLaurierMoment is all about - hearing from current Laurier students about what has made their university experience so rewarding.
