Student Exchange Program FAQs

Protecting the health, safety and well-being of Laurier’s students, faculty, staff, and the broader community has been the core principle driving decision making at the university since the beginning of the global coronavirus pandemic. All directives have been created through that lens, and in consultation with Public Health and in adherence to guidance from government. 

Considering the significant impacts of the Omicron variant, the university has – along with several other Ontario universities – made decisions that impact both inbound and outbound exchanges for the Winter term. Students enrolled in exchange programs should reference the following list of Frequently Asked Questions, as well as the emails received from Laurier International.  

We appreciate that this is disappointing, and that you have been provided with a great deal of information and decisions you must make no later than Jan. 3, 2022. If you cannot find answers to your questions here, please contact us at
