We can help make your journey easier.
Here's some important information that will help you along the way.
Online registration steps for continuing students
Continuing Students are those who have been enrolled at the college within the 12 months prior to the date of their return. Here’s how to register as a continuing student.
Step 1—Web Declare
Login to Camlink using your student ID number (C0XXXXXX) and your Camlink password. The first time you use Camlink your password is set as your birthdate in the following format MMDDYY. (Then you’ll get the opportunity to change your password.)
Once you are logged in, click on “Students” then click on “Web Declare” under “Registration”. Select the term in which you are planning to take courses and follow the steps until you get a registration date. This date is the first day that you will be able to access registration online.
Step 2—Pay your deposit
Pay your non-refundable $175 Registration Deposit at least three (3) business days before your Registration Date. Funded students are responsible for ensuring that the Centre for Indigenous Education & Community Connections office has received the appropriate sponsorship forms by this date. Please make an appointment to see an Indigenous Advisor approximately two weeks before your registration date. This allows our office enough time to correspond with your sponsor.
Check out “Your Guide to Online Registration”. Follow the registration instruction steps. Register on or after your designated registration date, however, the earlier you register, the better, as classes can fill up quickly.
If you require course-planning assistance, please make an appointment to see an Indigenous Advisor.
Note to new students in Indigenous programs or Career programs: You are automatically registered in the first semester of studies in September only. After that, you need to register for each following semester. Although seats in these programs are reserved for you, this reserve eventually lifts, allowing other students to enroll in these classes.
Step 4—Pay your fees
Pay your fees, or ensure that your sponsorship is in by the published fee deadlines.
Find out when to pay your tuition, when your classes or exams start (and end) and other important dates. There are links to the college events calendar and important dates for the school year.
First Nations Student Association
The First Nations Student Association (FNSA) is run by and for Indigenous students at Camosun College. FNSA was formed to address the specific concerns of Indigenous students, and to provide a safe, comfortable place for students to go. FNSA’s mandate is to meet students' social, cultural and recreational needs.
The First Nations Director is elected for a one-year term during the Camosun College Student Society (CCSS) spring election. The Director provides leadership for FNSA during the year and participates as a member of the CCSS Board of Directors.
The First Nations Student Association is focussed on Indigenous advocacy and has strong connections with the Native Students Union at the University of Victoria (NSU). Recently the NSU, FNSA and the CCSS collaborated to organize and participate in many Idle No More and Indigenous Nationhood Movement events.
FNSA also has a history of combining cultural and social aspects into events such as documentary screenings, moccasin making, drum making and Two Spirit Identity workshops.
The FNSA lounge is located in Young 314, Lansdowne Campus. (We are working towards creating a space for students at Interurban Campus too.) It’s a welcoming, casual environment for Indigenous students to get to know each other. The lounge has many comforts and conveniences like cozy seating and work/study space, microwave, coffee maker, kettles, snacks as well as tea and coffee supplies.
