Vancouver, BC – A new agreement between Langara College and Capilano University makes it easier for students to transfer to Capilano and complete a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in Liberal Studies.

The University recently signed agreements to enable Langara, Douglas College, and Okanagan College students to transfer seamlessly into year three of Capilano University’s Bachelor of Arts program.

"Langara facilitates opportunities for our students to attend universities across Canada, including our neighbours within the Lower Mainland," said Dr. Ian Humphreys, provost and vice-president, academic and students, at Langara. "Partnering with Capilano University is a natural fit and creates an exciting pathway for our Interdisciplinary Studies students to complete their degree."

Applicants who meet the agreed upon requirements will be guaranteed admission to Capilano University with full block transfer, provided all other entrance criteria are met and space remains available in Liberal Studies. All three agreements are in place for the University’s September 2016 intake.

With these partnerships, we’re pleased to ease the transfer process for eligible college students to efficiently complete their education at our University,” said Richard Gale, acting president of Capilano University. “We are happy to continue to strengthen our partnerships with these colleges.”
