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.  You can access detailed information about the academic standing policy from Registration & Records here:

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, a pilot launched in December 2018.  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. 

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.

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

  1. Successfully complete the Langara Return to Learning (LRTL) course with a minimum grade of 75%; and,
  2. Submit an Appeal for Admission/Re-Admission form to Registrar and Enrolment Services to formally request the early return.

The Langara Return to Learning (LRTL) course is a free non-credit course that is completed online on the Brightspace platform.  This course is intended to help you develop the tools to be successful in your studies, improve your strategies for studying effectively, and upgrade your organizational and time management skills.  Upon successfully completing the course with a minimum grade of 75%, you will be awarded a Brightspace badge of completion.

The Langara Return to Learning (LRTL) course will be available starting on February 1, 2019. 

  • Domestic students will receive an email from Registrar and Enrolment Services in January with information on how to register for this course. 
  • International students must attend one of the mandatory information sessions delivered by International Education in January, and will then be provided with information on how to register for the course.  International students may go to the International Education webpage for more detailed information.

If you want to find out if you are approved for early readmission before registration for the Summer 2019 semester begins, you must complete the course and submit your appeal form by March 1, 2019 The final deadline to submit your appeal for an early return is one week before the start of the semester. 



We hope that you will take some time to reflect on the issues that led to your suspension and develop solutions moving forward.  We encourage you to seek support and advice from the many Student Services that Langara has available to help you get back on the right path. 


The Counselling Department offers a comprehensive range of Student Success Workshops.  These workshops are open to currently registered students AND suspended students. While attending student success workshops is not a required part of the new LRTL course option for early readmission, you are still able to attend these workshops as part of your preparation for returning to studies.
