Online Resources

Academic Integrity

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

Learn how you can act with integrity:

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.  

Independent Learning Spaces

Our independent learning spaces provide you with space on campus where you can attend your remote learning classes.

These spaces are not for group work and are intended for individual use only.

Credit Conversion Option

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.

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