†† The Langara Students' Union General Members voted in a November 2020 Referendum to extend automatic coverage under the LSU Health and Dental Plan to both Regular Studies full-time and part-time students (those enrolled in one or more credits), as well as all eligible students beginning their studies at Langara in a spring semester.

  • The expanded eligibility to include part-time students took effect in fall 2021. The charge for the full year (charged to students who register in the fall) is $345.00. All Regular Studies students registered in one or more credits in the fall semester and all Continuing Studies students who are studying full-time in the fall semester who are members of the LSU are automatically covered by the LSU Health and Dental Plan and charged for the coverage.
  • The expanded eligibility to automatically cover students beginning their studies in a spring semester, will take effect in spring 2023. All Regular Studies students registered in one or more credits in the spring semester and all Continuing Studies students who are studying full-time in the spring semester who are members of the LSU will be automatically covered by the LSU Health and Dental Plan and charged for the coverage. The prorated partial-year charge (covering January to August) is $230.00. This only applies to students who did not meet the requirements for coverage in the fall semester.
  • Students beginning their studies in spring will be charged a prorated amount of $193.08 for coverage from January 1–August 31.
  • If you opt out, you will be reimbursed the full Plan fee by cheque. Be sure to opt out early.

Additional Fee Information

Audit a course Registration on a Non-Credit (Audit) Basis - Regular Studies

Students wishing to audit a course must submit their request in writing to (Attn: Supervisor, Records & Registration) indicating the course name(s), section, and student information prior to the first day of classes. Audit registration is not guaranteed as it is only applicable to courses in which there are seats available, after the registration period has ended. For this reason, students must not register themselves into the course directly. Registration will be handled by Registrar and Enrolment Services. Cancellation of request must be received prior to registration.

Students must be admitted to the College prior to requesting an audit; please review the admission information here. Please ensure that you meet the prerequisite and program requirement for registration prior to submitting your request.

Once registered, the College will not permit students to change from a non-credit to a credit basis or from a credit to a non-credit basis for any reason. The course name and number will be noted on a student’s record with the symbol (*) indicating the course was taken on a non-credit, ungraded basis. Tuition and fees for non-credit registration are the same as for-credit registration.
