Apply & Register - Undergraduate students (including International students) at a non-WCUMSS member university
Step 4: You must complete five steps (A-E):
Apply to the University of Victoria as a visiting student. To do this, visit UVic Undergraduate Admissions. Under the gray tab titled “Applying for Admission” follow the ‘apply online’ link. Once you have created a profile and complete the “Level of study” questions, there will be a section in the online application form titled “Type of Study”. You should choose the option “Visiting from another institution on a letter of permission”.
You will need to pay a $67.50 UVic undergraduate application fee, ($110 for International students) when you submit the online form.
Please make sure you are aware of the UVic application deadlines. The entry point for summer courses is May, and for fall courses is September. However, there may be exceptions for Block 3 summer courses starting in July. It is strongly recommended to get applications into UVic as quickly as possible, as there can be a 4-6 week response time. For more information, phone the UVic Undergraduate Admissions Office at (250) 721-8121.
You will needto submit a“Letter of Permission” from your home university in order to be accepted by UVic Admissions. The Letter of Permission must be sent directly to Undergraduate Admissions at UVic from your home university. You can obtain the letter from the Registrar’s Office or Student Advising Office at your home university. The Letter of Permission waives the requirement for you to submit an academic transcript to UVic Undergraduate Admissions. The Letter of Permission allows you to take the course(s) approved by BMSC, but does not entitle you to take other courses at UVic. This is an example of a Letter of Permission, which the Advising Centre for Science, Social Science and Humanities at UVic asks their students to fill out.
Once accepted by UVic Admissions, you are required to pay a$200non-refundable acceptance deposit. The $200 deposit will be applied to your tuition.
You will then need to setup a Netlink ID in order to login to uSource, an online system for registering for courses at UVic.
Register for course(s). You will need to login to uSource to register. Register at UVic for the BMSC course(s) for which you have been accepted. Course registration codes at UVic will be included in your acceptance message from BMSC (Step 2). It is your responsibility to ensure that UVic course credits are transferable to your degree program at your home institution.
