Late Withdrawals
Late Withdrawals are also managed by Registrars and Enrolment Services. All requests for late withdrawal (including medical withdrawal) must include the Student Appeal Request form, and be accompanied by a letter from the student explaining:

  • The extenuating circumstances that prevented them from meeting the normal withdrawal deadline, and
  • Why they need to withdraw.

Extenuating circumstances means "compassionate and exceptional circumstances beyond a student's control that significantly affect the student's ability to meet the requirements of a course. Such circumstances may include those related to a student's physical or psychological health that is verifiable and documented by an appropriate listed professional."

The student’s letter must provide the following explanation:

  • the circumstances that prevented them from meeting the normal withdrawal deadline, the purpose of the appeal and a clear statement of the desired outcome
  • official documents confirming that the request is legitimate or the Student Appeal Request Form (with section 6 completed by an appropriate professional).

Requests for late withdrawal will not be considered without authentic documentation.

Students may review the complete Withdrawal from Courses and Deferred Standing Policy or Procedures for more detailed information. Students can also email appeals@langara.ca if they have questions about the late withdrawal process, or call the main Registrar and Enrolment Services number to be redirected.
