Winter Start

Laurier’s network of student support is here to help you navigate the steps to becoming a Golden Hawk so you arrive in January feeling prepared to thrive.

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

Searching for available electives or creating a conflict-free timetable can make your first time registering for courses seem challenging, but don’t worry – we’re here to help!

Review the Course Registration Guide and follow each step carefully to register in your winter courses. Spring 2021 registration does not become available until February 23, 2021. 

Welcome Webinar

The Welcome Webinar is designed to help make the transition to university life easier by reviewing everything you will need to know before you start your classes in January. 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.

If you need an accommodation for registration support or need an accessible version of this webinar recording, contact

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.
