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.

Work and Learn: Part-Time Studies

Coming back to school part-time is a rewarding challenge. Many of our degrees, at both the undergraduate and graduate level, can be completed part time.

We offer a wide variety of in-class and online course offerings throughout the year, including the spring and summer terms, so you can work towards your degree year-round. Depending on your program, you can take both in-class and online courses to complete your degree.

We recommend that you contact the advisor of your program of interest to find out whether or not the program you are interested in is available on a part-time basis.

Part-Time Application Procedures

If you are applying to more than one university, you should apply through the Ontario Universities' Application Centre (OUAC), following the regular application process and using the appropriate 105 application form on OUAC. You can indicate on your application that you are applying for part-time studies.

If you are applying to Laurier only, we have a separate part-time application process. You should use Laurier's part-time application form if you are only applying to Laurier and are a/an:

  • Senior citizen or adult student;
  • Laurier staff member;
  • Individual seeking personal or professional upgrading;
  • Degree-seeking applicant wishing to study part-time; or
  • Audit student.


If you have questions about how your individual circumstances might impact the application process, contact and we will be happy to assist you.
