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.

We understand that circumstances may prevent you from enrolling for the term specified in your offer of admission. In such cases, a deferral of admission may be granted to you.

How Deferrals Work

Deferrals of one year may be granted to students attending Laurier for the first time. Please note that deferrals are not guaranteed. We will email you after the deferral deadline to inform you if your deferral request has been granted or denied.

If your request to defer is granted, you will receive an email from us the following year to request that you reconfirm your offer of admission by completing a readmission form.

Read through the following information, including the rules for deferring, and then complete the Deferral Checklist to submit your deferral request.

Deferral Checklist

  1. Confirm your offer of admission. Please see your official offer letter in your applicant portal for further details.
  2. Make sure you have read through and understand the rules for deferring.
  3. Submit the Offer of Admission Deferral Request form. This form will be available in October for Winter 2023 deferrals.
  4. Pay the non-refundable $60 administrative fee for the processing of your deferral request. 
  5. If you registered for courses for a term from which you are deferring, you must drop them in LORIS.

You will receive an email from us the following year to request that you reconfirm your offer of admission by completing a readmission form.
