Langara College

Located in beautiful Vancouver, BC, Canada, Langara College started in 1965 as part of Vancouver City College and in 1970, it opened its West 49th Avenue campus. On April 1, 1994, Langara College was established as an independent public college under the Provincial College and Institute Act. The College is also known as house of teachings, a name given to us by the Musqueam First Nation, on whose unceded traditional territory we are located.

Langara is one of BC’s leading undergraduate institutions providing University Studies, Career Studies, and Continuing Studies programs and courses to more than 21,000 students annually.

  • Transfer Credit

    The Langara reputation for excellence in the post-secondary system has been earned as a result of the high level of success our students achieve when they leave to pursue a university degree or embark on their chosen career. More students transfer to BC universities from Langara than from any other college in the province. More importantly, these students do as well as or better than students that go to university straight from high school.

     

    Please check the British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer website for specific transfer details at BC Transfer Guide

     

    Transfer guides and course planning sessions, designed to assist students with course selection in university-transfer programs, are available from the Counselling Department.

  • Transfer to Langara

    Upon request, 60% of Langara citation, certificate, diploma, associate degree, and bachelor degree program requirements may be transferred from another recognized post-secondary institution. These credits must have been completed within the first 60% of the program. Transfer credit is not included in the calculation of GPA.

     

    To request transfer credit, students must submit a Transfer Credit Request form (also available from Registrar and Enrolment Services), an official transcript from the transferring institution, course outlines for courses completed outside BC, and the appropriate fees. The deadline for transfer credit required to meet prerequisite requirements is ten weeks before the semester begins; the deadline for transfer credit required to meet graduation requirements is January 3rd. Students who need the credit only to meet prerequisite requirements may go to the appropriate department with an official transcript for a prerequisite override. Students with an acceptable post-secondary English or Communications course may apply at Registrar and Enrolment Services for a Langara English Test (LET) or a Language Proficiency Index (LPI) exemption. Official transcripts are required.

  • Transfer to Other Institutions

    Students planning to transfer from Langara to another educational institution should consult Registrar and Enrolment Services of that institution to determine the transferability of courses taken at Langara. The institution to which the student’s official transcript is sent may evaluate courses, appraise letter grades, and compute grade point averages in accordance with its own policies and regulations. Students may also refer to the BC Transfer Guide. Students planning to transfer should discuss their plans with a Langara counsellor.
