I have never attended UVic before, how do I apply?
Apply on the Web at www.uvic.ca/apply
An application is required from all new undergraduate students applying for admission. The application fee is nonrefundable and not applicable to tuition fees. Applications submitted without this fee will not be processed. See below for the appropriate fee required:
$67.50 If all transcripts or the Letter of Permission come from institutions within Canada.
$110.00 If any transcripts or the Letter of Permission come from institutions outside of Canada.
I’m a visiting student - how do I apply?
The same as any other student, except that the institution to which you are planning to transfer the credit must forward a “Letter of Permission” to Undergraduate Admissions.
When should I apply?
As early as possible. See Deadlines.
Is there anything else I need to send?
Arrange to have one official transcript from your secondary school, and one official transcript from any postsecondary institutions sent by the issuing institution directly to Undergraduate Admissions, University of Victoria, PO Box 3025 STN CSC, Victoria, BC V8W 3P2.
If I am admitted to UVic for the first
time in Summer Session and I plan to
continue at UVic in the Fall, do I need
to do anything to ensure that I am able
to register in Fall courses?
No, new students registered in Summer Session will usually be automatically authorized to register for Winter Session.
I currently am enrolled in courses at the University of Victoria — do I have to apply to take courses in Summer Session 2013?
All students registered in either Winter Session 2012-2013 (except those who withdrew) for Summer Session 2013 have been automatically authorized (those who graduated in Fall 2012), provided they are eligible to continue.
I am authorized to register in Summer Session 2013 but I have been required to withdraw from UVic following the Winter Session 2012-2013. Can I register for Summer Session courses?
Students who are required to withdraw will not be eligible for Summer Session registration. Authorization or registration will be cancelled and courses will be dropped automatically. Undergraduate Records will initiate a credit of Summer Session fees, if necessary.
Can I register for Summer Session 2013 courses if I was placed on probation at the end of the Winter Session 2012-2013?
Yes, you can register for 2013 Summer Session courses. You will be on University Probation for the Summer Session and will need to clear this probation status by achieving a 2.00 or better GPA (projected or final) in the 2013 Summer Session before you will be eligible to register for the 2013–2014 Winter Session.
I have been away from studies at UVic and am applying to re-register for Summer 2013. I also want to continue in Winter Session 2013-2014. Do I need to submit a Re-registration Application for the Winter Session?
You will not need to complete an application for Winter Session. You will automatically be authorized to register in winter 2013-2014 just as all students newly admitted to UVic in Summer will be authorized for Winter.
How many units must I be registered in to be considered full-time?
An undergraduate registered in 6.0 or more units in Summer Session (May- August) is considered to be a Full-Time student.
When does Registration begin?
Registration begins March 25. Your registration date and time will be randomly assigned within your year level. To enable students to gain faster access to registration the number of students eligible to register each day is limited.
How will I know when I can register?
In early March you will be sent an email advising you to check www.uvic.ca/mypage under Student Services, Registration Status for your assigned registration date and time.
Do I need to register on the assigned date and time?
You are advised to register on your assigned date and time. You are eligible to access registration at any time after your assigned date and time too. Please do not try to register before your assigned date and time as you will be denied access to registration.
