Applicants completing enrolment contracts and have paid full / partial tuition fees will receive a Letter of Acceptance (LOA). The LOA is accepted by the Government of Canada to apply for Study Permit (study visa).

The Conditional Letter of Acceptance (CLOA) is issued in case the educational institution determines that the international student requires successful completion of a prerequisite course or program before the admission. The officers of the Canadian immigration services issue a study permit for the length of the prerequisite program plus 1 year enrolment in a subsequent vocational program selected by the student. The students who successfully complete their prerequisite program will then need to apply for a new study permit and demonstrate they have completed the admission requirements. Missions overseas should take into consideration the bona fides and available funds for the main program, should the prerequisite be passed, before issuing the travel document for the prerequisite study program. Note: Foreign nationals who have been issued a study permit for a prerequisite program are not eligible to work off campus in Canada until they begin their main program of study.

After receiving the Conditional Letter of Acceptance and/or Letter of Acceptance, you must apply for a Study Permit (Visa) from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) (Formerly also known as Citizenship and Immigration Canada or CIC). It is preferable to obtain the Letter of Acceptance after making a deposit.

A Student Permit is mandatory for those who are NOT Canadian citizens or Permanent Residents of Canada and wish to study temporarily in Canada.

You submit your Letter of Acceptance and your visa application form at the nearest Canadian Embassy, High Commission or Consulate. Visit the study permit link to know more.

In case that you need help in visa application, we will provide a list of licensed immigration consultants who are external to the college to provide you guidance. You will have to contact them separately. Their fees are not part of the admission process.

Upon being granted the Study Permit (Visa), you must notify CCHAP’s Admission Office by emailing the visa copy to You will be provided details to submit full fees upon your arrival in case you are a non-SDS student.
