1. A non-refundable application fee must be submitted with the application for admission. Visit fees information for additional details.
  2. All transcripts and educational documents must be official (photocopies are not accepted).

Note: All transcripts and supporting documents submitted with an application for admission become the property of Langara and are under no circumstances returned to the applicant. Exceptions may be made for irreplaceable documents providing the student informs Registrar & Enrolment Services upon submission of the documents that the documents cannot be replaced.

BC Secondary School students currently in Grade 12 can request to have their high school transcript sent to Langara electronically by the Ministry of Education. Students must request this online through the Student Transcripts Service (STS), where they will need to grant Langara access to their transcript for at least one year. Students will also be required to provide their BC Personal Education Number (PEN) with their application. No further action is necessary. If students do not have their grades forwarded electronically, they must provide an official transcript to Registrar & Enrolment Services as soon as it is available.

Students who have completed course prerequisites at another institution (secondary or post-secondary) must request that this information be put on their Langara record at least ten weeks in advance of their registration date. See Transfer Credit for more information.

For secondary school prerequisites (if the student has attended a secondary school outside of Canada), students will be required to meet prerequisites either by completing an approved diagnostic test, Adult Basic Education course(s), or by completion of appropriate university-transferable coursework for which Langara awards transfer credit. Please note, secondary school courses completed outside of Canada are not transferable to Langara and cannot be used to meet course prerequisites.
Students who have completed secondary school in a Canadian province other than BC must submit an official transcript to the admissions office.

A unique nine-digit Langara ID number is assigned to each student. This ID number is required for registration and must be noted on all documents and correspondence submitted to the College. Once a student has registered for courses, this number must be used in all transactions with the College.

Reactivation of Application

If students apply to a university studies/open enrolment program for a specific semester but do not register into any courses for that semester, they must reactivate their application for the semester that they are interested in attending. Reactivation requests are subject to the same deadline dates as new applications. Students are strongly advised to submit reactivation requests to Registrar & Enrolment Services as soon as possible. Reactivation of an application is free if the reactivation is made for two semesters immediately following the first semester for which the application was made. 

To reactivate, students must complete a Reactivation form. Reactivation forms are available here or at the Registrar & Enrolment Services office.

Returning Students

University studies/open enrolment students who have previously registered at Langara and who have a Langara academic record are not required to re-apply for admission to the university studies/open enrolment program. Students must update their address if it has changed since they last registered. Please refer to the current Registration Guide and Course Schedule for information on registration.
