The following are the updates on how the Spring semester will conclude and how the Summer semester will operate.

ACCESS TO A COMPUTER AND INTERNET
Each student is expected to prepare for a virtual learning environment and ensure that adequate preparations have been made to succeed in the new learning environment. It is a student’s responsibility to have the appropriate resources and technological capabilities to study online.

TRAVEL
Coquitlam College understands that some students may choose to leave Canada. The College will allow students to register for the summer semester and study while overseas. Students should be aware that they could have problems taking online courses overseas if there are international disruptions to communications and that they would be responsible to any failure to communicate.

MEDICAL
The College advises students to discuss with their private insurance provider of any potential changes to their medical insurance or to their coverage while outside Canada.

IRCC
The College also recommends that students understand any updates to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) policies before making the decision to leave Canada. Students should contact IRCC before deciding to leave Canada and study online.

ASSOCIATE OF ARTS CONVOCATION
Unfortunately, we have had to postpone the convocation to a later date yet to be determined.

VALID STUDY PERMIT
Please remember that all students who study in Canada or overseas in the Summer Semester must have a valid study permit.
