  • COVID FAQs

    Prospective International Students
    How has COVID-19 affected the Spring (May) 2020 intake?
    Due to the COVID-19 situation in Canada and abroad, the decision has been made to defer all Spring 2020 Term 1 students to the Fall (September) 2020 intake. There will be no Term 1 classes offered at Lambton College during the Spring 2020 semester.
    I received admission and paid fees for the Spring 2020 intake. What happens to my admission?
    All applicants have been deferred to the Fall 2020 intake with a new Term 1 start date of August 31, 2020. Your fees will automatically be allocated to your new start date. A new acceptance letter will be issued to your agent within the next 1-2 weeks. Please contact your agent for your new acceptance letter.
    What should I do if I received a visa rejection for the Spring 2020 intake?
    You may submit a refund request through your agent on the basis of your visa rejection and in accordance with our Refund and Withdrawal Policy.
    I received my visa for the Spring 2020 intake and I’ve already traveled to Canada. What should I do now?
    Your admission has been deferred to the Fall 2020 intake with a new start date of August 31, 2020. Please be aware that your international student medical insurance coverage (provided by GuardMe – a third party insurance provider) is effective only from the first day of classes – not from the date you arrive in Canada. If your arrival date is prior to the start of classes, it is strongly recommended that you purchase travel insurance, including health insurance coverage, to cover yourself until the first official day of classes.

    For further questions about your status we recommend that you consult with an immigration lawyer, regulated immigration consultant, or Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
    I received my visa for the Spring 2020 intake but have not yet departed my home country. Should I travel to Canada now?
    Your start date has been deferred to August 31, 2020. Please consider your new start date, travel restrictions in your home country, and Canadian travel restrictions before planning your journey.
    I paid fees for the Spring 2020 intake but have not yet submitted my visa application. Should I apply for my visa now?
    New acceptance letters for Fall 2020 will be issued to your agent within the next 1-2 weeks. We recommend that you wait for the new acceptance letter before submitting your visa application. Please contact your agent for your new acceptance letter.
    I received my visa, but it expires before the estimated completion date on my new acceptance letter. What should I do?
    For questions related to your visa, we recommend contacting Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
    I already completed my online pre-arrival orientation for the Spring 2020 intake. Do I need to complete the online pre-arrival orientation again for Fall 2020?
    No, you are not required to complete the pre-arrival orientation again. Please remember to print your completion certificate and bring it with you during on-campus orientation in August.
    Is it possible to defer admission to the Winter (January) 2021 intake?
    Seats were made available to accommodate deferred enrolment into the Fall 2020 intake. We are unable to defer admission to Winter 2021 or any other intake.
    Why have tuition costs increased on my new acceptance letter?
    Fees increase each academic year. This information is stated on our website and in the footnotes of your acceptance letter.

    Students who were deferred from Spring 2020 to Fall 2020 may be eligible to receive a Term 1 tuition adjustment of up to $500 CAD. This will be done on an exceptional basis only in programs where Term 1 tuition costs increased between Spring 2020 (as estimated on your original acceptance letter) and Fall 2020.

    If costs have increased due to external factors (such as required courseware, textbooks, software) students will be responsible for paying the difference in full prior to the program start date.
    I would prefer to withdraw my admission and refund my fees. Is that possible?
    You are welcome to submit a refund and withdrawal request through your agent. Refunds are subject to an administrative fee as detailed in our Refund and Withdrawal Policy. The withdrawal deadline for Fall 2020 is September 11, 2020. Withdrawal requests submitted after this date will not be eligible for a refund of Term 1 fees.
    Who should I contact for further information?
    Please visit the International Education section of our website for contact information based on campus of study.

    Spring 2020 Term - The start of the sememster has been postponed until May 19 for returning students where courses will be delivered online until we determine that it is safe for students to return to studying on campus.
    Will I see a reduction in my tuition fees if I am studying online?
    Lambton College, all colleges in Ontario, and most businesses in Ontario and across Canada have moved to remove delivery or remote work. The safety and security of our students was paramount in our decision to move in this direction. We are incredibly proud of our faculty, support staff, and administrators who moved so quickly to ensure the safety of our students, while offering them the ability to complete their programs in the only way possible during these unprecedented times.

    Lambton College will not offer refunds or partial refunds as a result of online delivery.
    Will COVID-19 impact my PGWP eligibility?
    Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has confirmed that PGWP eligibility would not be impacted by alternative course delivery for reasons related to COVID-19. International students will still be considered eligible for the PGWP provided they meet all other program criteria.
    Am I still eligible to work?
    International students who were eligible to work on or off-campus can continue to do so, but remain subject to the same number of authorized hours (20 hours off campus during academic sessions and full time during scheduled breaks).
    Should I return to my home country?
    The Government of Canada is being proactive in its response to COVID-19 to ensure the health and safety of everyone currently living in Canada. We wish to highlight that international students should not make quick decisions.

    Please reassure your family that international students are covered by guard.me health insurance. International students will have coverage for COVID-19 under the terms and conditions of the policy, just like any other medical condition.

    The current term will be delivered in an online format for the last several weeks of the term. Students returning to their home countries should keep in mind that they will still be expected to join online class at the times offered, despite being in a differing time zone.

    If you choose to return to your home country, be sure to follow your country’s procedures as it relates to Coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Most importantly, please also be aware of travel restrictions to Canada should you want to return by following travel advice on Immigration, Refugees, Citizenship Canada website.
    Where can I find information about my international student health insurance?
    Please refer to the GuardMe microsite for your particular campus for policy details and Frequently Asked Questions regarding COVID-19. You would have received your e-card through your MyLambton email at the end of the first month of studies directly from GuardMe. We suggest you print and keep a copy of your policy card with you at all times.
