Spring Start

We understand that getting ready to start university can be overwhelming at times with lots of steps to complete and new processes to learn. Our Laurier 101 program will help you navigate your next steps to prepare for life as a Golden Hawk in May.

Laurier 101 is a campus-wide incoming student support program that supports you from the time you accept your offer until the first week of classes and beyond. Laurier 101 brings together students, staff and faculty from across campus to answer your questions and make sure you are prepared for the time you’ll spend at Laurier both inside and outside of the classroom.

Course Registration Support

Let us help you understand all of the new registration lingo so that you can get a strong start in your program. Our transition specialists are available to help guide you through the process of determining your program requirements, choosing electives, building your schedule and navigating the LORIS registration system.

Email laurier101@wlu.ca to request a virtual appointment to receive individualized assistance with your course registration. Spring registration will open on February 23 at 10 a.m.

Welcome Webinar

The Welcome Webinar is designed to help make the transition to university life easier by reviewing everything you need to know before you start your classes in May. We will also introduce you to the resources and services available to support you in your first year and chat about some strategies that you can use to be successful in an online academic environment. Registration in advance is required.

If you are unable to attend the live webinar, you will be able to download the full video the following day on this page. If you need an accommodation for registration support or need an accessible version of this webinar recording, contact laurier101@wlu.ca

Accessible Learning

If you’re in need of academic accommodations the first step is to self-identify with the Accessible Learning Centre and provide current documentation from a registered healthcare professional (e.g. physician, psychologist or psychiatrist).

You can begin the registration process as soon as you accept an offer of admission to Laurier. It is in your best interest to begin the registration process as soon as possible.
