I've Been Admitted

The Admitted Checklist:

Congratulations on being admitted to Lakehead University!

To ensure a smooth transition to Lakehead University, please read through the following steps carefully:

Step 1: Read all of the Information in Your Offer of Admission Letter & Package


Read your Offer of Admission carefully. Any and all conditions of your Offer of Admission must be successfully met as detailed. Failure to meet your admission conditions will result in your Offer to be withdrawn. Please keep Enrolment Services - Undergraduate Admissions informed of any changes in your academic history, current registration, etc.

If you intend to complete any of these conditions by taking summer school or correspondence courses you must contact Enrolment Services - Undergraduate Admissions directly. You are responsible for ensuring that official notification of your mid-term and final marks are received by Lakehead University, Enrolment Services - Undergraduate Admissions, by the deadline stated in your Offer of Admission letter.

Step 2: Accept Your Offer of Admission

Applicants who applied on the OUAC 101, the OUAC 105,  the Ontario Law Schools, or the Ontario Faculties of Education application must accept their offer using their OUAC account. For more information on accepting your offer through OUAC, refer to the OUAC FAQ.

You must respond on or before the date indicated in your Offer of Admission as your Offer of Admission will expire after that date. Admission and registration at Lakehead University are conditional upon full compliance with all Lakehead University regulations and policies, including those respecting fees.
