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.

We encourage you to take your time during your winter break to apply for university if you haven't already done so. Our website offers information on everything from specific programs, to co-op and work experience opportunities, and videos about the Laurier experience from our current students.

Tips for Applying to Begin Your Undergraduate Studies

To help you through the process, here are some pointers we think will help:

  1. Write down your OUAC Reference Number and keep it safe. You are required to refer to it in any communications with OUAC or universities.
  2. Make sure you have the right email address on your application. Double check that you have correctly spelled your email and ensure that it is an email address that you check often.
  3. Make sure you have a form of payment ready when you apply. Your first 3 Ontario university/program choices are covered by the $140 base application fee. Additional university/program choices beyond those 3 choices are $47 per choice. You can pay by credit card (MasterCard, Visa or American Express), or you can pay through online banking, which normally takes 1-3 days to process.
  4. Get your application in before the deadline of Jan. 14, 2015.
