Langara College is a member of the Association of Canadian Community Colleges.
The B.C. Ministry of Education pays tuition and fees directly to Langara College from all approved B.C./Canada Student Loan funds (Daycare fees are exempt from this directed payment.) Students must pay the College or be refunded, when there are subsequent changes to study costs, resulting from adding or dropping courses. If the Student Loan funding is insufficient to cover tuition and fees, students must pay the difference to the College.
Students who have received approvals of their B.C./Canada Student Loans, in advance of the fee payment due date (April 29, 2010, before 2100 hours) will automatically receive deferral of their tuition and fees, and will not be dropped from their courses. Students should check their Langara College accounts online to see if this deferral is in place. It is very important to apply as early as possible for Student Loan funding- at least 3 months before the start of the semester of study is recommended.
If you are a domestic student experiencing serious financial hardship, you may request approval from the Financial Aid Department for a Deferred Payment Plan, once you have paid a minimum of $150 for the upcoming semester. For the summer 2010 term, application for the Deferred Payment Plan may be made from April 6, 2010 to April 29, 2010, Monday to Friday, 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., with the exception of April 15, 2010. Application forms can be picked up at the Financial Aid office or downloaded from the Langara College Financial Aid website.
Students who expect to receive Student Loan funding from other provinces may apply to the Financial Aid Department for the Deferred Payment Plan, if by April 29, 2010, they can provide written documentation of approval and funds pending. If you are out of province during registration month, contact the Financial Aid Department to organize the Plan.
Students who expect to receive sponsorship funding will not be dropped for non-payment provided that they can provide written documentation of approval and funds pending to the Langara College Student Accounts Department (second floor), not the Financial Aid Department. This must be done by the scheduled payment due date.
Please contact the Financial Aid Department for further information regarding these changes.
