To apply to graduate programs at Laurier students must collect all application materials, including transcripts (if not available electronically through the online application process) and references, which must be submitted in sealed envelopes endorsed across the back flap. All materials must be submitted to the appropriate office. Since this process may not be possible in all situations, no student will be penalized for the submission of documents separately, provided all parts of the application are received by the deadline.


  • Information regarding specific programs may be obtained by writing directly to the appropriate department or to the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies.
  • An application fee must accompany all applications.

Application materials are available on the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies website, under Prospective Students.
