How to Apply and Register

Fall/winter LORIS Registration Instructions for Part-time Students
The process for registering using LORIS is dependent upon students having confirmed their program selection and can be done by part-time students in one of the two following methods;

Step 1. Students who are new to Laurier (returning students proceed to step 2) must apply for admission through the Ontario Universities' Application Centre (OUAC). Admission information, including Letter of Permission, is available online at www.wlu.ca/admissions. An OUAC form can be found in the Forms section of this calendar.

Step 2.

  1. Currently or previoulsy registered part-time students were notified by email early February, with instructions to confirm their program by April 10th. If you did this, you will be able to register according to your year, once registration opens, as outlined in the information found at this link: http://www.wlu.ca/page.php?grp_id=1365&s_id=1462

  2. If you did not confirm your program at that time or did not receive the email, you will need to fill out the approrprate Program Selection Form, found here http://www.wlu.ca/forms.php?grp_id=1365. You will then be able to register after the date specified in this link, according to your year; http://www.wlu.ca/page.php?grp_id=1365&s_id=1462
Please note if your status is unclassified or post-degree, you should compete the Program Selection Form - Faculty of Arts. On that form, you will need to indicate "unclassified" or "post-degree"  in the Current Degree Program field,  select "Other" as your Degree and then click on "n/a" for Year.  
As an unclassified or post-degree student, you will then be able to register after July 10th as outlined in the information found at this link; http://www.wlu.ca/page.php?grp_id=1365&s_id=1462
Be sure to register before July 14th, to avoid late registration charges.

Paper registration continues to be available using the Intent to Register form or the Course Change Request form. Return either form with your Distance Education (DE) Form to the Office of the Registrar. Printable forms are available online from the forms section of the Office of the Registrar website: www.wlu.ca/registrar and the Distance Education website www.wlu.ca/disted.

Step 3. When you register online or by paper on the Intent to Register form or Course Change Request form, you must fill out your DE Form at the same time. Read the instructions for completing the form carefully, especially when selecting your exam centre. If you register online, please complete your DE Form online. If you register by paper, submit your DE Form with your Intent to Register to the Office of the Registrar.

If you register (online/paper) by the appropriate registration deadlines with a completed DE Form (refer to the Important Dates section of this calendar), you may choose to have your materials shipped to your home (signature required) or to the Laurier Brantford Bookstore, at no charge. Requests for shipping after these dates are subject to a $50 shipping fee. Please note, if you select the Laurier Brantford Bookstore as your shipping location, you are responsible for verifying that your materials have arrived and picking them up.
