How to Submit Your Documents

How to Submit Unofficial Documents Through Your Applicant Portal

In many cases, we can make an admission decision using an unofficial, scanned copy of your document(s), which must be submitted online through your applicant portal account (see instructions below).

Laurier does not accept unofficial documents submitted by email.


  1. Log in to your portal account.
  2. Select the "My Applications" tab.
  3. Select your application under the "My Applications" heading.
  4. You will be brought to a form that contains your list of required documents (and instructions on what to submit).
  5. Upload all required documents to complete your application. 

How to Submit Final, Official Copies of Documents

After you are admitted to the university and accept your offer of admission, you must arrange to have your official, final documents sent to Laurier. Documents can be submitted in a few ways:

  1. Have the issuing institution submit the documents by email to and include the applicant's full name and Laurier ID number. The Admissions team will verify that the sending email address is official. Documents submitted from webmail accounts, such as Gmail, will not be accepted. Only final, official documents being submitted to satisfy the conditions of your offer can be sent to us by email.
  2. Have your documents mailed to Laurier directly from the issuing institution in a sealed and stamped envelope.
  3. You can request your documents through the Ontario Universities Application Centre (OUAC). If you are currently enrolled in an Ontario postsecondary institution, BC secondary school, or Quebec CEGEP, you should request a transcript be sent at the end of your studies.

How to Confirm We Received Your Documents

Use your applicant portal account to confirm this information. Laurier does not confirm the receipt of documents by phone or email. 

Your uploaded documents will automatically be submitted to the Recruitment and Admissions office. Receipt of mailed documents is also communicated through your portal.

About Required Documents

You are required to submit your transcripts from each high school and postsecondary institution you have attended. If you are a transfer applicant, you may not be required to submit your high school transcript. Check your applicant portal account to view your specific list of required documents that are needed to assess your application. 

Laurier may also request additional supporting documents at the discretion of the Recruitment and Admissions office, including academic or English-language tests.
