After You Apply, Domestic Students

You’ve chosen what you want to study and submitted your application. What happens after you’ve applied? When might you be offered a seat in your program of choice?

If you're an International student (not a Canadian citizen or Permanent Resident), see the International Application Process.

After you submit your application

  • As a domestic applicant, you can expect to receive all communications from Camosun Admissions by email. Emails will include your Camosun Student ID
  • An Admissions Advisor will evaluate your application and notify you about your next steps within 2-4 weeks
  • Evaluation of your application is based on the official transcripts and any other supporting documentation that you have submitted
  • Admission is granted on a first-qualified, first-served basis, except for competitive entry programs
  • High school applicants may be granted conditional admission to some programs and will be placed on the program list at the time of application – the admission requirements for the program must still be met, but at a later date
  • If your application is not admissible, check out the options under How to Apply Step 4 - Meet program admission requirements

  2. You will receive an Offer of Admission (program invitation) by email for the program start that is available for you
    • You will need to pay a non-refundable Registration Deposit to accept your Offer of Admission by the deadline provided
    • The non-refundable deposit applies to the total tuition & fees payable for that academic term with the balance of fees payable according to published fee deadlines
    • For most programs starting in September, Offers of Admission will begin in February of each year and will continue until the program is considered full
