    FAQs for International Students
    How has COVID-19 affected the September 2021 term?
    Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, programs will be delivered in a fully remote or partially remote format.
    I'm ready to study remotely - what are the requirements?
    Students require a computer, webcam, microphone and reliable home internet connection. You can begin your program with an approved study permit, an approval in principle (AIP), or if you've submitted your study permit application for the Fall 2021 intake.
    If I am unable to travel to Canada, can I study remotely from my home country?
    Yes, many programs will be delivered in a fully remote format allowing you to study remotely while living in your home country. 
    I've never studied remotely before, will it be challenging?
    Get ready to join thousands of Lambton College students already studying remotely, here in Canada and overseas. Remote study will require motivation, self-discipline, and effective time management skills. But here's the good news - these are all attributes that Canadian employers are looking for. This is a great opportunity to develop skills relevant to your ongoing studies and post-graduate employment success.
    Will remote study impact my PGWPP eligibility?
    According to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), you can complete 100% of your studies online from outside Canada. All your time studying on line outside Canada between Fall 2021 and December 31, 2021, counts toward the length of a PGWP. 
    For the most up-to-date information, please visit the Government of Canada - IRCC website.
    Can I study remotely, outside Canada, without a study permit?
    According to the IRCC, after you apply for your study permit, you may begin studying online abroad and that time will count toward the length of your future post-graduate work permit until December 31, 2021. 
    I've registered for Fall 2021 without a full study permit approval. What happens if I receive a visa rejection after I begin my studies?
    In the event that you receive a visa rejection at any time or stage, you remain eligible to apply for a refund of your prepaid fees less a $250 CAD processing fee and any non-refundable etextbooks. You must notify Lambton College within 10 days upon receipt of your visa rejection. Transcripts cannot be provided for semesters in which a student has been withdrawn and received a refund. Please refer to our refund and withdrawal policy.
    When will I receive my timetable for the Fall 2021 intake?
    Timetables are accessible after completing your online registration and mandatory orientation program.
    I've paid fees to confirm my seat for the Fall 2021 intake. Can I defer my admission to a future intake?
    As stated in the footnotes of your Lambton College acceptance letter, deferrals will not be approved. Students are expected to register for the intake in which their seat is confirmed.
    Do I need to purchase a Quarantine Package?

    As of July 5, 2021, fully vaccinated travelers may qualify for certain exemptions to quarantine and testing requirements. To be considered fully vaccinated, you must:

    • be eligible to enter Canada
    • have received the full series of an accepted COVID-19 vaccine
    • have receive your last dose at lease 14 days prior to the day you enter Canada

    If you meet the conditions listed above, you will not be permitted to purchase the Lambton College quarantine package. Final determination of whether you qualify for the exemption is made by a government representative at the border. For more information, please refer to COVID-19 vaccinated travelers entering Canada.

    If you do not qualify for an exemption, you are required to purchase a Lambton College quarantine package in accordance with our DLI Readiness Plan. Please refer to your study location link below to purchase your quarantine package:

    I intend to study remotely from within Canada. Am I eligible to work off-campus?
