International Students - Application Process

It's easy to apply as an international student. Let us help you on your way. In two easy steps, you can complete your application for Camosun. If you have questions about the application process please send us a message.

Application Process

Please review the Admissions Deadlines for International students.
We recommend you apply early. Popular programs may have waitlists.

The international student application process consists of two parts:

Part One: EducationPlannerBC

You must apply online through EducationPlannerBC first.

  • Save your reference number
  • Save e-payment receipt


Application vs. Admission

Submission of an application does not guarantee admission to a program or course. Seat offers in programs and courses are subject to seat availability. Some programs may have a waitlist.

Preliminary Assessment

If you are not sure whether you meet the admission requirements for international students, consider skipping the EducationPlannerBC step and submitting supporting documents only with a request for unofficial evaluation (free of charge).

Incoming Transfer Students

The International Admissions department does not evaluate previous coursework for credit towards a Camosun College credential. Please review information for International Transfer students.

Program Change (for Applicants)

Program change requests may be considered subject to the availability of seats and meeting respective admission requirements. Not all programs will have seats available. Popular programs often have long waitlists. Contact us to see if we can accommodate your request.

Program Change (for Accepted/New Students)

If you decide to change your program after being admitted to Camosun, you may incur a financial penalty for program changes. Please review the New International Student Program Change Procedure before making any changes to your program or dropping classes.
