Undergraduate Admissions: Step-by-Step Guide

Each academic program at Laurentian has required and/or recommended secondary school courses to be considered for admission.

Visit our undergraduate program pages for program descriptions and admission requirements for Ontario high school students. Be sure to also check for any supplemental documentation required for your program.

To be admitted to an Ontario university, you must apply online through the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC) at

  • Ontario secondary school students will use the OUAC 101 application form. Students residing in Canada will use the 101D form while those with international student status registered in an Ontario high school, will use the 101F form.
  • Secondary school students residing in Canada, but outside of Ontario will use the OUAC 105D application form.
  • Mature student applicants residing in Canada will also use the 105D application form. In addition, Laurentian’s Office of Admissions requires you to submit a resume or CV specifying your education, work experience and interests, as well as a letter outlining the reason(s) you are pursuing university studies.
  • Secondary school students residing outside of Canada will use the OUAC 105F application form. The OUAC website has many helpful resources including video tutorials, FAQ sections and step-by-step guides.
  • All other domestic applicants will use the 105D form and International students will use the 105F form.
Personal Identification Number (P.I.N.)
If you are currently enrolled in an Ontario secondary school, guidance counsellors will provide you with a P.I.N. (personal identification number) to access the OUAC site and application process. All other applicants will create user profiles on the OUAC 105 application form.

Once you have applied, you will receive an important email from Laurentian’s Office of Admission with information on accessing your Applicant Portal. You should receive this email within 72 hours of submitting your application to OUAC.
