April 18, 2018 UPDATE:
Due to overwhelming demand in many of our programs, we are no longer accepting applications for September (Fall) 2018.* We encourage all interested applicants to apply early for January (Spring) 2019. Students are encouraged to apply online through Education Planner BC.
*Some limited enrolment programs may still have seats available. Please refer to the Education Planner BC site for further information.
University Transfer Programs
Students should apply at least six months prior to the start of the semester in which they want to begin their studies. Applications are accepted beginning 11 months before each semester.
University transfer programs have intakes every semester (three per year). Students interested in a Career Studies or Limited Enrolment program should check the program pages for intake semesters.
Processing time for a Study Permit from a Canadian Embassy, Consulate Office, High Commission or Visa Centre can take six to eight weeks, or more. It is the students’ responsibility to make sure that they are able to report to the College on the date specified in their Letter of Acceptance, and with enough time before the semester begins to attend a course planning session, write any necessary placement tests, and obtain necessary course registration information.
|Semester||Recommended Application Deadline*|
|Fall Semester (September to December)||May 31|
|Spring Semester (January to April)||October 31|
|Summer Semester (May to August)||February 28|
*Late applications may be processed if space permits and the application is submitted with all required documents. Late applications that are submitted without adequate time for processing and study permit approval may be deferred to the next semester.
