Langara Return to Learning Course (LRTL)

Are you currently on Academic Suspension? 
It can be very upsetting to be placed on academic suspension, we encourage you to view this experience as an opportunity to develop new approaches to your studies, which will help you be more successful in the future. Langara College has an Academic Standing policy that governs how your academic performance is assessed. The full academic policy is available from Registration & Records.

If this is your first time on academic suspension at Langara College, you are not permitted to register for three consecutive semesters. However, you may be eligible to appeal for early readmission if you choose to successfully complete Langara’s Return to Learning (LRTL) course option. Under this new option, early readmission is not guaranteed, and you will still be required to sit-out for a minimum of one semester while you complete the LRTL course.

Note: If this is not your first time on academic suspension, you are not eligible to appeal for early readmission based on the LRTL course option.

Completing this course is not mandatory, but is required if students wish to appeal for early readmission. Early readmission is granted to students who successfully complete the LTRL course with a minimum grade of 75%.

There are three steps to completing the LRTL course option for early readmission:

  1. Attend a LRTL information session.  You will be registered into the course after the completion of the information session.
  2. Log into Brightspace and complete the online course. You must achieve 75% on each module quiz in the course, in order to successfully complete the course.
  3. Attach your ‘completion badge’ (download from Brightspace, showing you have achieved the required score of 75%), and attach it to the Appeal for Early Readmission Form and submit to the Registrar’s Office.

Information sessions are held each semester. When the schedule is confirmed, dates and registration information is posted on the Counselling website.
