Wilfrid Laurier University Part Time, Online and Continuing Studies Calendar - Fall/Winter 2017/2018
Canadian Excellence

Continuing Studies

Our course and certificate offerings are not for degree credit, so you do not need to apply for admission to the university to register in our learning opportunities.


Please note that we do not accept registration sent by email, as this is not a secure way to transmit credit card information.

Registration deadlines vary depending on each course and certificate. Be sure to check the specific course/certificate page for registration deadline details.

We do not accept post-dated cheques or payment via debit cards.

As our registration system is online, once payment has been submitted, you will receive an automated email confirming that we have successfully received your payment. Once we have sufficient enrolment in a course/certificate, we will email you an official receipt.

Any other additional information you may require for your course/certificate will also be sent via email.
