FAQ for Future Students - Fall 2021

July 15, 2021

Please read carefully this important communication regarding the beginning of your studies.

Will the upcoming Fall quarter take place on campus or online?

LaSalle College Vancouver is very pleased to be planning for a full return to campus as of the fall!

The Fall quarter at LCV is set to begin September 6th for our Jewellery Design Diploma program, and October 4th for all other programs. Our programs will be delivered primarily on-campus, although there will continue to be some online components within each program. All students are expected to be in Vancouver in time to join us on-campus for the fall start. (Our E-Learning programs are, of course, completely virtual.)


LCV will continue to monitor Public Health guidance regarding COVID-19, and we will inform our learning community of any adjustments to the fall plan. To stay up to date on all actions taken by LCV in regards to COVID-19, we encourage you to consult the News section of our website.

What can we expect when we return to campus this Fall?

  1. Continued vigilance on cleaning protocols.
  2. A new policy on communicable diseases
  3. Some mask wearing and distancing when required but not required all the time in every space.
  4. Reduced hours throughout the night (only open 24 hours near end of term)
  5. Some classes to use technology for blended delivery but returning to a strong hands-on/in-person component.
  6. Some student experiences to leverage technology for virtual events.
  7. More in person events aligned with PHO guidelines.
  8. Some staff to work remotely when their role allows for it.
  9. Some renovated spaces and fresh paint everywhere.
  10. Many welcoming staff and happy faces!

If I register for the Fall quarter and the situation continues, can I postpone my session?

Yes. Your application at LaSalle College Vancouver is still valid. This means that you have the possibility to postpone your starting session at no additional cost. However, please note that not all programs have an intake in all quarters; in some cases, students may need to wait until the next available intake.

Is the admissions office still open?

Yes, absolutely. Our Admissions office continues to operate on a regular basis and our admissions advisors are happy to answer any questions you may have. They are available by phone, by email, by text, or in person on campus to assist you with your admission request and to process your application.

Are admission requests being processed as normal?

Yes, our admissions advisors continue to process all applications, either remotely or in person, and your admission request will be processed within the usual time-frame. For more information on the steps in the admission process you can consult here.

Is the College still open?

The campus is currently open but not all classes are being held on-campus as we continue to promote social distancing and minimizing groups of people throughout the summer. We are excitedly anticipating a full return to campus for all students in the fall.

To stay up to date on all actions taken by LCV in regard to COVID-19, we encourage you to consult the  News section of our website.

International Students

If I take online courses instead of on-campus, will that affect the Post Graduate Work Permit after graduation?

As this situation continues to change and study/work permits are issued by the Government of Canada, please consult their website. Please note that LCV expects all students to be present on campus from the Fall quarter.

I am an international student; will my visa application be impacted?

As the Canadian Government is responsible for issuing study permits, please reference their COVID-19 response page. LCV’s staff is standing by to assist international students with planning for entry into Canada, in accordance with all current COVID-19 protocols, including quarantine, etc.
