Step 2: Apply to Langara.

Application and document deadlines.

We begin accepting applications 11 months before a program starts.

Applications and all supporting documents for undergrad programs must be submitted by the deadlines* outlined below (21:00 PST).

  • Fall 2024 (Sep–Dec): April 30, 2024
  • Spring 2025 (Jan–Apr): August 31, 2024
  • Summer 2025 (May–Aug): December 15, 2024

How to apply.

How you apply will depend on your program. See below for more information.

Step 3: Accept your offer.

Receive an Offer of Admission. 

After your application is processed, eligible students will be sent an Offer of Admission to the preferred email address entered in the Student Information System. Your offer will include a request to pay the International Student Deposit – a deposit that holds your spot in the program and will be applied to tuition fees in the first semester. 

Effective for Spring 2024 and beyond, an Offer of Admission must be accepted within the timelines outlined below. Offers of Admission not accepted within these timelines will be withdrawn by Langara College.

  • Undergraduate programs: offers must be accepted within 21 calendar days of receipt.
  • Post-Degree programs: offers must be accepted within 14 calendar days or receipt.

Please read all the information carefully. Some programs will have a payment deadline to keep your seat in the program.

Receive Letter of Acceptance (LOA). 

After the deposit is paid, an official Letter of Acceptance (LOA) will be issued and sent by email.  

NOTE: As of Jan 22, 2024, every study permit application submitted to IRCC will also require a provincial attestation letter (PAL). Once you have received your Langara LOA, don’t forget to request a PAL letter. When you have a LOA and a PAL, you can now apply for a Canadian Study Permit

NOTE: On June 27, 2023, Immigration Refugee and Citizenship Canada introduced a new temporary public policy which allows eligible foreign workers, on valid work permits, to study without a study permit. Learn how this new policy may apply to you.

Step 4: Prepare for arrival.

We look forward to welcoming you to Langara College!

Depending on the program you will be attending, you will hear from a member of our team with information. In the meantime, read this information to get you ready for Langara.  

IMPORTANT: If you are currently outside of Canada, do NOT book non-refundable travel until you have registered into courses. Travelling to Canada prior to registering into classes may impact your student status in Canada.

There is plenty to do before you arrive in Vancouver. You can start by checking out the official Pre-Arrival Guide for a detailed resource on what you need to do and prepare before your travel.

And if you haven’t already, take some time to discover Vancouver!
