You’re ready to apply to Laurier – that’s great! Most applicants must apply online through the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC), but there are some situations where you may follow an alternative application process. See "Other Application Procedures" below to see if that applies to you.
If you have any questions about your application, we want to help. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once you have picked your program, apply to Laurier online using the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC). On a single application form, you can apply for admission to three programs at Ontario universities. If you have any questions about using the OUAC application system, contact OUAC directly.
If you currently study at an Ontario high school, apply using the 101 application. You need your unique PIN number from your high school guidance office to apply.
If you do not currently attend an Ontario high school, you apply using the 105 application. This includes mature applicants, transfer applicants, applicants from other Canadian high schools, international students, and any other type of applicant.
If there were any periods of time that you were not enrolled in postsecondary studies since completing high school, you must complete the "List of Activities" section as part of your OUAC application.
The Laurier English and Academic Foundation (LEAF) program is for applicants who do not meet Laurier’s English language proficiency requirements. You must submit a minimum score on a test of English proficiency to be admitted to the LEAF program.
If you are eligible for your academic program, you will receive a conditional offer of admission with an English Proficiency requirement. One of the options for meeting this requirement is through the completion of the LEAF program.
If you are applying to more than one university, you should apply as normal through the Ontario Universities' Application Centre (OUAC) using the 105 application. You can indicate on your application that you are applying for part-time studies.
For either application method, you will be required to create an OUAC account (if you do not already have one). You may have only one OUAC account and can recover an old account through OUAC if necessary. If you have questions about your account or the application process, send your inquiries directly to OUAC.
Apply to Laurier for part-time studies.
After you apply, self-identify as an audit student by emailing the Recruitment and Admissions office at email@example.com. You should include your Laurier student ID number in your email.
After you are admitted to the university, you must get permission from the faculty to audit courses. You can contact Service Laurier for help with this process.
You will need to request re-registration if you had a lapse in registration at the university for 18 months or greater or if you attended another postsecondary institution since your last registration at Laurier.
If you were required to withdraw from Laurier, you can request readmission 12 months after the date you were required to withdraw. Readmission is at the discretion of the faculty and is not guaranteed. Academic upgrading is required.
Lazaridis School of Business and Economics students are not eligible for readmission. You can apply to be readmitted to another program at the university.
The Strategies for Academic Success (SAS) program is available for any student that has been required to withdraw as a method for readmission to Laurier.
University of Waterloo students are able to take courses at Laurier through cross-registration. Follow the instructions on Laurier’s Enrolment Services: Visiting Students webpage.
You can request to enrol in Laurier courses to count towards a degree that is being taken at another university by obtaining a Letter of Permission from your institution. Follow the instructions on Laurier’s Enrolment Services: Visiting Students webpage.
