Langara Course Planning Sessions For New and Prospective Arts & Science Students
Selecting courses and understanding how to transfer from Langara to university can be confusing for new students. This 90-minute session is designed to help you understand university transfer and entrance requirements. The advisors will also discuss prerequisites, diagnostic tests and course registration.
* Note - Sessions are offered year-round at Langara. Due to high demand for one-on-one appointments, Langara Advisors require that you attend a course planning session before receiving individual assistance. As appointments are limited, they strongly recommend you start your educational planning early. You do not need to pre-register for these sessions, however, it is a good idea to arrive early as seating is limited.
