Verification Of Enrolment
Current students who require confirmation of their status at Laurier can obtain a signed verification of enrolment (VOE) document through LORIS indicating their enrolment status and registration details for a given academic term. Students are able to print off a VOE for any term they have attended at Laurier.
The letter is generated on Laurier letterhead, uses data directly from the student record, and is considered official by:
- Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC; formerly Citizenship and Immigration Canada)
- Local transport authorities (GRT, GO, Toronto Transit)
- RESP providers
The information contained within the VOE includes:
- Personal identifiers including name, student number, and birthdate
- The date and time the document was generated
- Registration status
- Degree and program of study
- Current year, and duration of the program (if applicable)
- Full-time or part-time
- Term dates
- Course registration summary (for the term)
Note: The document is generated in high resolution suitable for printing, and all text and images should be clear and sharp.
To print off your VOE, log in to LORIS, select the "Student Services" tab, then select "Verification of Enrolment (VOE)."
If you are looking to release the funds from your RESP to pay tuition, you have a few options.
Verification of Enrolment from LORIS
Verification of Enrolment letters can be generated and printed from your LORIS account for free (see above).
Note: These documents are only available for current or past term registration.
Letter Request Form
The letter request form is used to provide a letter to your RESP company, verifying the student is enrolled for the current academic year. This form is often used when proof of enrolment or verification is requested on official letterhead. The letter is drawn up for the student by Wilfrid Laurier University.
Note: Letters produced are only as accurate as the information we have available. If a student has not registered for their courses, we are unable to provide a letter stating they are a full-time student. Verification of enrolment is a snapshot of the student's enrolment at the time of the letter's creation.
Outside Agency Form
An outside agency form is used when the university is required to complete a form. The most common types are from RESP companies or financial institutions. When submitted a form on behalf of another agency, please submit it with a completed outside agency form and bring it to Service Laurier. No forms can be completed without a signed outside agency form.
- Students need to sign off at the bottom of the request form.
- Service Laurier will not be reviewing other areas of your form for completion, so make sure everything is complete prior to submission.
- Payment must be received prior to processing.
- Please ensure that you are enrolled full time, as that will be required.
- Faxing and sending forms via courier have additional costs.
- You can submit forms via mail, fax, scan a copy via email (from your @mylaurier.ca email account), or in person at Service Laurier. Requests can only be accepted directly from the student.
- All forms are processed in receipt order within four business days and up to seven business days during peak periods.
- Rush order service is available in person at a Service Laurier location for an additional fee of $30.
If you require further assistance regarding RESP forms, please contact Service Laurier.
