The current situation can lead to many questions about planning your studies. Please note that at LaSalle College, registrations are still open for the Summer and Fall semesters.


1. Will the Summer (or Fall) semester still take place?

Yes, for the moment, the semester starting in May and the one starting in August will take place as planned. The College is closely monitoring the quickly evolving situation with COVID-19 and is considering all scenarios, including the possibility of taking your courses online. LaSalle College has been a pioneer in online training for nearly 20 years, and therefore we are able to offer you an efficient learning environment at the cutting edge of technology.

Here are the different solutions implemented by program:

  • Residential Real Estate Broker (AEC)
    • This program is offered on campus and online, in "Live Virtual Classroom" format (classes with a teacher in real time).
    • If schools remain closed, the program will only be offered online.
  • Immigration Consultant (AEC)
    • This program is only offered on campus. It is your last chance to take this program leading to an Attestation of College Studies (AEC).
    • If schools remain closed, the program will exceptionally be offered online, in "Live Virtual Classroom" format.
  • Project Management (AEC)
    • This program is offered on campus.
    • If schools remain closed, the program will be offered online, in "Live Virtual Classroom" format.
  • Information Technology Programmer-Analyst (AEC)
    • This program is offered on campus.
    • If schools remain closed, the program will be offered online, in "Live Virtual Classroom" format.
  • Professional Cooking (DEP)
    • This program is only offered on campus.
    • If schools remain closed, the program will begin, as usual, with 4 weeks of theoretical courses (Hygiene and Sanitation) which will be offered online. The training will therefore be starting on the expected start date (May 19). If the school closure extends beyond this period, the practical courses will be offered at the reopening of the College or in the Fall semester.
  • Artistic Makeup - Fashion and Beauty and Manicures, pedicures and artificial nails
    • These programs are only offered on campus.
    • If schools remain closed, the Intake will be postponed to later (during the Summer) or in the Fall.

To keep you up-to-date on all the actions taken by the College in this regard, you can consult the "News" section on our website: https://www.lasallecollege.com/news?filter=COVID-19.


2. Will admission fees be reimbursed if I register and I cannot start my session as planned?

Yes, in order to provide you with peace of mind, LaSalle College will refund your admission fees upon request, should you not be able to start your session as planned (school closed, unable to enter Canada, etc).


3. If I register for the Summer session and the situation continues, can I postpone my session?

Yes, absolutely! Your application at LaSalle College is valid for one year. This means that you have the possibility to postpone your starting session at no additional cost.


4. Should I register for the Fall semester rather than the Summer semester due to the current situation?

As of now, the summer semester, which starts in May, will continue to take place as planned. Should the campus remain closed, we have the infrastructure in place to offer online classes. LaSalle College has been a pioneer in online training for nearly 20 years, and therefore we are happy to be able to offer you an efficient learning environment at the cutting edge of technology amid the current situation.


5. Should I go ahead and request my study permit and Quebec Acceptance Certificate (CAQ)?

Currently, the Canadian government keeps processing study permits, but delays can be longer than usual.

a) If your permit was accepted before March 18, 2020, you are among the exceptions that will be allowed to come to Canada when the travel restrictions will be lifted by the Canadian government.

b) If your study permit has not yet been accepted, you will need to get acceptance first and then you will be able to come to Canada when the travel restrictions will be lifted.

If you need more information, contact Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada Support line at 1-888-242-2100, open Monday to Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Exceptionally, during this period, please note that certificates from the College will be provided in electronic format only.
