Applied, what's next?

I've submitted my application to UVic

After you submit your application, you'll receive two emails from UVic:

  1. A confirmation email providing the nine-digit student number (e.g. V00123456) that you'll use throughout your time at UVic.
    • The confirmation email usually arrives less than two business days after your application has been submitted.
  2. An introductory email from your UVic admission assistant.
    • The introductory email usually arrives less than one week after your application has been submitted.

Once you receive both emails, you'll be ready for the next steps in the application process.

1. Check your application status

After you receive the introductory email, you'll be able to access the application portal to see the status of your application and a checklist of tasks that you need to complete.

4. Submit proof of English language proficiency (if required)

All applicants to UVic are required to demonstrate competence in the English language prior to admission. You are not required to provide proof of language competence if you have studied full-time for at least four years within Canada at the high school or post-secondary level, and all of your instruction has been in English.

If required to do so, you should submit your language test scores or other documentation as soon as possible.
