2021 New Study Permit Policy – due to COVID-19 IRCC Policy Changes
- Upon successful application to the College for the Spring 2021 semester, a student can be issued a Letter of Acceptance (LOA) for the purposes of obtaining a study permit from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada.
- When the College has received documented proof of “approval-in-principle” from Immigration Canada, the student will be eligible to register for the Spring 2021 semester for remote learning. If, after receiving an “approval-in-principle”, the student’s study permit application is denied for any reason between the date of registration and Feb 28, 2021 the student will be eligible to receive a refund of the tuition fees paid to the College less a $500 administration fee.
- To engage in on-campus learning, students must have an approved study permit or a port-of-entry letter of introduction that shows the student was approved for a study permit, both of which allow them to study from within Canada.
- If the student’s study permit is denied for any reason after Feb 28, 2021 the student is not eligible for a refund of fees for the Spring 2021 semester. Any fees paid for future semesters will be refunded to the student upon receipt of the original Study Permit refusal letter issued by Immigration Canada.
Please be advised, course registration is not guaranteed based on “approval-in-principle” from Immigration Canada. All course registration is dependant upon courses available at the time of student registration.
