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.

A number of college and university students just like you choose to continue their postsecondary studies at Laurier. Whether you’re looking to build on the knowledge you’ve learned at college, or to switch gears and try something new, we’re here to help you through the process of transferring institutions.

Read more about our general transfer admissions policies.

Applying to Laurier as a Transfer Student

When you apply, your application will automatically be evaluated for transfer credits, if you’ve attended another postsecondary institution in the past. A preliminary transfer credit assessment will be provided on your offer of admission and will be finalized when all conditions are cleared.

You can find out how to apply to Laurier as a transfer student through our admissions process.

Get Your Degree ASAP

The Advanced Summer Acceleration Program (ASAP) is a purpose-designed pathway for college students, from two-year or three-year diploma programs, going into Bachelor of Arts programs at the Brantford campus. It allows you to start your degree one semester earlier in the summer and, with continuous study, you will complete a four-year honours degree in only two calendar years.

Not only will you finish your degree faster, saving you time and money, you will also experience your transition to Laurier in an environment designed specifically for you. Experience the advantage of taking summer courses alongside other college transfer students who share similar experiences and questions. And you’ll get to know faculty and explore services at Laurier before the rest of the Golden Hawk family returns in September.

"I love Laurier because I feel valued here. My professors know my name and when I go to social events, I always know someone there. The sense of community is overwhelmingly evident here and I couldn't have asked for a more supportive place to learn. I've never met more helpful and considerate faculty. Transferring here was the best decision I ever made."

– Jenna Berseth, fourth year, Social Work
