Starting an educational journey is a major life decision. We're here to help by providing the information you need to have the best learning experience possible.
Step 1- Decide on your program
Your first step in applying to a program is to decide what program to apply to. You'll choose your specific courses at a later date after you register.
Step 2 - What kind of applicant are you?
If you’re 19 years of age or older, already graduated from high school or currently attend high school outside of BC/Yukon, you can apply anytime.
You must submit sealed, official transcripts as part of your application or complete an assessment.
You can complete an application online through Education Planner.
