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.


Whether you are coming from high school, applying as an adult learner or transferring from college, Laurier is committed to helping you pursue this next chapter in your education journey. We support a diverse population of Indigenous learners at our Indigenous Student Centres on both our Waterloo and Brantford campuses. We're here to help you with the application process.

Laurier's Indigenous Admission Policy

Applicants who identify as an Indigenous student will be given consideration for admission to Laurier programs if they fall within 5% of the established cut-off during each phase of the admissions cycle to a minimum of 70%. In order to be considered within the 5% window, applicants must provide a written statement outlining any work experience, achievements, educational goals and why they believe they will be successful at postsecondary studies. The Indigenous admissions policy applies to undergraduate learners.

Six Nations Polytechnic

Successful completion of the community-based, University Consortium 1 Year program at Six Nations Polytechnic provides the foundation for students to be eligible for admission into the second year of Laurier's general Bachelor of Arts degree programs (Waterloo or Brantford campus).

Our partnership offers students the opportunity to complete the first year of a Bachelor of Arts degree within the Six Nations community. Courses taken during the Consortium program at Six Nations Polytechnic are eligible for transfer credits towards a Laurier degree.
