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
- If you applied for your study permit on paper, you need to create an account and then link your application.
- 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
- You can find it on the list of designated learning institutions.
- 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.
