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.

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

Apply Online through OUAC

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.

Undergraduate Applicants 

If you are applying to an undergraduate program, you will need to use the Undergraduate Application. 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.

Apply to the LEAF Program

The Laurier English and Academic Foundation (LEAF) program is an academic English program offered at our Brantford campus. Completing the LEAF program is one way to meet our English-proficiency requirement.

You must submit a minimum score on an English-language test to be admitted to the LEAF program.

If you are eligible for your academic program, but do not meet our English-proficiency requirement, you will receive a conditional offer of admission with a condition to submit evidence of your English proficiency. One of the options for meeting this requirement is to completion of the LEAF program.

How to Apply

  • Apply to an academic program using the appropriate OUAC application. Once you receive a conditional offer of admission, you may accept your offer and register in the LEAF program using your applicant portal. 
  • You will need to complete an ELP test before you can be admitted to the LEAF program, as we use your test score to determine the level in which you will start.
