Indigenous Student Policy
During the academic year, university recruiters travel across Ontario to visit Indigenous students in many high schools and community organizations.
These recruiters are part of the Aboriginal Post-Secondary Information Program (APSIP), a collection of Indigenous recruiters from Ontario and Quebec colleges and universities. APSIP has the most up-to-date information about applying to your university as an Indigenous student.
Alternative Admission and Transition Programs
Laurentian University is committed to reviewing all applications. Students may receive an alternate offer to a program they may not have applied to as a result of not meeting the minimum entrance requirements for the program they requested. They are still, however, admissible to other programs at Laurentian.
Laurentian University offers an Introduction to University Studies Program (IUSP) to students who do not meet the minimum admission requirements but wish to continue their studies at the postsecondary level. For more information, email Laurentian.
Mature student applicants must submit a resumé or CV, a statement of interest, and transcripts from all of their prior studies.
To be recognized as a mature applicant, candidates:
- must be 21 years of age or older by the end of the academic year to which they applied.
- should not have attended a secondary or postsecondary institution for at least 1 calendar year prior to the beginning of their university studies.
