The number of Ontario high school students who accepted an offer of admission for full-time, first-year studies at Wilfrid Laurier University represents the university’s largest-ever incoming class.
The number of Ontario high school students who accepted an offer of admission for first-year studies at Laurier was 4,839 – up 748, or 18.3 per cent, over last year. The increase was the second highest in the province, which saw a sector-wide increase of 1.9 per cent.
“Laurier continues to be a top choice for students looking for strong academics, innovative programs, a sense of community and an outstanding student experience,” said Tony Vannelli, provost and vice-president: academic. “Our approach to developing students within a thriving and inclusive community continues to attract high-achieving students.”
In addition to those students entering directly from Ontario high schools, Laurier’s incoming undergraduate class included students applying for first-year studies after a year or more away from high school, Canadian students outside of Ontario, as well as international students. Confirmations from these cohorts of students increased by 146 confirmations over last year.
