New International Student Orientation - Summer 2021 Semester

Instruction and student services at the college are still running but have transitioned from in-person or face-to-face to remote and over the phone. All your courses and services at Camosun have transitioned to alternative methods of delivery and will be offered in 4 different delivery methods: online asynchronous, online synchronous, blended and in-person depending on the program and course.  Check the Student FAQ page for more details.

You will receive more information about your schedule and how your courses will be delivered after registration starts at the end of March. There will be more information once you access your online courses through D2L. All new students will gain access to D2L one week before classes start.
