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.

Adapted Course Instruction

Laurier has discontinued in-person instruction for all courses for the remainder of the winter 2020 term and for the spring, summer and intersession 2020 terms. This includes all undergraduate, graduate, and non-credit/professional development courses.

Online Courses and Programs

Online courses and programs continue to be delivered normally. However, exams will not be written in-person. Required exams will be administered online.

Out-of-Class Learning and Exchanges

For all experiential learning opportunities (co-op, exchanges, community-service learning, practica, internships, workplace partnerships, etc.), students should consult with the relevant co-op, exchange, practicum, or field placement office responsible for organizing placements in their program to jointly determine the best path forward, in consultation with the community partner or employer.

Spring, Summer and Intersession 2020

The full "sprummer" (spring, intersession and summer) term for 2020, including all classes, assessments and exams, will be delivered online.

Given that sprummer registrations include a high proportion of Laurier-UW double-degree students, the adjusted sprummer academic dates are designed to match those established by UW. This includes a one week delay to start the term (starting on May 11 instead of May 4) to allow additional time for planning.

Fall 2020

We will continue to offer most of your courses online and virtually this fall. We continue to work together to identify aspects of programs and activities we can deliver in person, as aligned with public health requirements. There are many details to be confirmed, and we will keep you well-informed as soon as we have determined the specifics about undergraduate and graduate courses.

Support Services for Students

Moving to an online format means students may need to adapt how they engage with course material. While this may seem overwhelming at first, we’ve created the Remote Learning Student Support Hub to help students locate the academic, mental health and social tools and services they need.


Tech Services

Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) offers online services and other resources that may help meet your technology needs as your classes move to an online format:
