The timetable for fall and winter classes will be available for students in LORIS and ScheduleMe on May 25 in advance of course registration. The fall timetable will include all in-person, remote and online courses while the winter term will reflect a return to normal operations. Students who are unable to learn in person in September will have access to remote and online courses as noted in the timetable.

Acting with integrity requires you to practice ethical and moral principles of honesty, responsibility, and fairness in your coursework and research.

Accessible Learning

If you are a student with accommodation requirements, the Accessible Learning Centre (ALC) is accepting applications for new students to Laurier or current students new to using the ALC's services. Visit the ALC registration page to learn more about the application process.  

Credit Conversion Option

On April 12, Senate approved, beginning with the winter 2021 term forward until the academic disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic is declared over:

  • The establishment of a CR option of 0.5 CR per term
  • Effective from Winter 2021 to the end of the disruption
  • Totaling a maximum of 1.0 credits for an undergraduate or graduate degree

The limit comes into effect in the winter 2021 term, meaning any you have already used do not count towards the maximum amount.

This option can be chosen for a course where you have earned a passing grade. Any course in which there is a finding of academic misconduct will not be eligible for conversion to CR.

Laurier Library

Although all Laurier campus library facilities are currently closed, all online resources and services, including a wide range of electronic collections, are accessible:

Subject Librarians will be available to provide assistance for research help to students (find your librarian by subject).

All loaned materials will have their due dates extended accordingly and no fines will be charged for overdue materials.
