To apply to the LLC, undergraduate students must have at least 60 semester hours with a minimum average GPA of 2.75. Students should consult their advisor to determine the best semester to apply for the LLC program.

Undergraduate or graduate students enrolled in a university or college that is a member of Universities Canada or CHEC may apply to the LLC certificate program as a visiting student. Visiting students will be students of Trinity Western University for their semester at the LLC.

  • Academic record
  • Demonstrated commitment to and compatibility with a living/learning community
  • Leadership experience
  • Character
  • Past life and work experiences
