  • Registration Date: After you Web Declare you'll get your personal registration date—the date you can start to use Camlink to register in classes for the upcoming term.
  • Limited availability: Web Declare is only available to enrolled students for a limited period in each term, so we do our best to communicate the date that it becomes available. Keep your email address up-to-date to receive registration notices or check Camlink regularly for notices.

Note: If you have been away from Camosun for a year or more, you are no longer considered a current student and will have to reapply to the college. Contact Admissions.

Step 2 - Pay My Deposit

Why do I need to pay a deposit? Your registration deposit declares your commitment to register and must be paid each term.

  • Non-refundable: For each academic term/semester, you have to pay a $175 non-refundable registration deposit, which is applied to your total fees for that academic period.
  • One-time deposit transfer: If you choose not to attend classes in the term or semester for which you paid the deposit, it can be transferred to the next possible intake of your program (within 12 months). This one-time option is only available if you request the transfer prior to the first day of the term or semester.
  • Entry to courses not guaranteed: Payment of a registration deposit does not guarantee entry to courses, as this is dependent upon academic prerequisites and upon the availability of seats.
