Contact your program

Contact the program's Graduate Co-ordinator or Administrative Assistant to ensure that your application package has arrived, to ask questions such as:

what is the typical review period of the applications?
can I arrange for an on-campus tour?
can you arrange for a current graduate student to phone me to talk about the program and graduate study at Laurier generally?
will the courses I am interested in be offered in the coming year?

If your program has a thesis requirement, this is a good time to contact your prospective advisor to discuss research plans.
