If the original documents are not issued in English, an official word-per-word English translation of each document must accompany the original documents.
Original documents may be requested at any time. Students who fail to provide official documents when requested may have their application cancelled, and/or be blocked from registration.
Step 2: Offer of Admission
After your application is received and all documents have been approved, Langara will send you an Offer of Admission by email.
Upon receipt of the Offer of Admission, please submit payment of the tuition deposit.

The International Student Deposit will be applied to tuition fees in the first semester. LEAP program requires payment for the first two sessions.
