These exceptions include but are not limited to exchange programs for MOPA, ECCE and IDEA students as well as Special Programs such as Disney International Program and Aichi Gakusen Exchange.

    If you have any questions about courses you will be transferring back by completing a full-term exchange program, please consult studyabroad@capilanou.ca.
  6. A mini-portfolio of work (for applicants in the IDEA program only)
  7. Two Faculty references. Please advise your Faculty references to email a completed Faculty Reference Form (pdf) directly to studyabroad@capilanou.ca before the application deadline.
