Change your post-secondary school in your account

You need to let us know any time you change your post-secondary school. To do this, you’ll need:

  • an online account
  • your study permit number
    • It begins with the letter “S” and is at the top right of the permit.
    • For security reasons, we may ask you to provide a few details from your application, so have it handy.
  • your new school’s designated learning institution (DLI) number
  • your new Student Identification Number (Student ID)
    • You can find it on the acceptance letter your new school sent to you.
  • your start date at your new school.

You don’t need a representative to change your DLI, even if you used one to apply for your study permit. You can do this yourself if you have your study permit application details.

Follow these steps to change your school:
