Step 1: Apply

Before you apply, ensure you meet the admission requirements of your preferred program and that the program will meet your academic and career goals.

General admission requirements can be found in the applicant area below. Full admission requirements vary by program and are listed on each of our program pages.

Note: Entry into our programs is competitive and possession of the admission requirements does not guarantee entry.

Apply through OUAC

Your first step is completing the online application through Laurier’s page on OUAC (Ontario Universities’ Application Centre). Once this step is completed, proceed to Step 2: Upload Your Documents.

Many of our programs offer multiple intakes per academic cycle. If, after creating an OUAC account and submitting your application(s), you wish to apply to a different intake or a new program within that academic cycle you must create a new OUAC account using a different email address.


Should you have any technical questions while applying through OUAC, email or call 519-823-1063.


Your referees will receive an auto-generated email based upon the contact information you provide on your OUAC application.

You are encouraged to review the FAQs for reference letters and the referee process. You can also check out our tips for seeking academic references.
