Wilfred Laurier University Homeschooled Admissions

This page last updated: 2018-07-09

On this page, you need to scroll down to the relevant tab (Homeschool Students):



Homeschooled students will be considered for admission to Laurier Bachelor of Arts programs at the discretion of the faculties, provided that they submit satisfactory documentation of independent evidence of academic achievement. All homeschooled students can also be considered for admission to Bachelor of Arts programs at our Brantford campus or into the Faculty of Music at the Waterloo campus via specific admissions policies.

[UniversityAdmissions.ca note: To get an idea of what to expect, here is what their website said in 2017:]


If you are not currently attending an Ontario secondary school on a full-time basis, you should complete the appropriate online application form (105 application form) through the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC). You can obtain a paper copy of the application form by contacting OUAC at 519.823.1063 or request@ouac.on.ca.

On a single application form, you can apply for admission to 3 different universities in Ontario for an application service fee of $150 (non-refundable).

If you are using the paper application, mail the completed form to OUAC at the address below (do not mail your application to Laurier):

Ontario Universities’ Application Centre
170 Research Lane
Guelph, Ontario, Canada
N1G 5E2

After you submit your application form to OUAC, it will be forwarded to the Recruitment and Admissions office at Laurier. When we receive your application and other necessary documents (see below), your file will be reviewed to determine if you are eligible to receive an offer of admission.
