Indigenous Student Policy

During the academic year, university recruiters from the Aboriginal Post-Secondary Information Program (APSIP) travel across Ontario to visit Indigenous students in many high schools and community organizations.

APSIP is a collection of Indigenous recruiters from Ontario and Quebec colleges and universities. They have the most up-to-date information about applying to university as an Indigenous student.

Alternative Admission and Transition Programs

Laurentian University is committed to reviewing all applications. Students may receive an alternative 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 to students who do not meet the minimum admission requirements but wish to continue their studies at the postsecondary level. For more information, email the Admissions office.
