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.

Applying After the Deadline

The application deadline for Ontario high school students has passed but that doesn’t mean you’ve missed out on your chances to join the Laurier community this year. Some undergraduate programs are still open for fall 2024 admission! You can find the full list available at the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC).  
Not an Ontario high school student? You have until April 1 to submit your application...but there’s no time like the present!
