Admitted, what's next?
I've received an offer of admission - what do I do next?
Congratulations on your admission to the University of Victoria. You’re about to become part of a fantastic campus community and rewarding academic environment. Following the steps below will help you to prepare for your UVic experience but if you have any questions along the way you're encouraged to get in touch.
Once you have received your admission letter in the mail, let us know if you plan to accept our offer using the on-line confirmation form.
If your offer of admission is conditional, you must meet all stated conditions prior to the first day of classes. Refer to the Admission Summary on the back of your offer letter for all the important details.
If you have been admitted to a first-year program at UVic you may be able, under certain circumstances, to defer your admission until the following September. All requests are handled on a case-by-case basis; see the information on deferring your admission for details and deadlines.
As soon as you decide that you will definitely be registering at UVic, you must submit a $200 acceptance deposit. For payment options, visit Accounting Services. Your deposit must have been received by the Tuition Fee Office no later than June 1 in order to receive access to the course registration system on your assigned registration data. This deposit is non-refundable, however it will be credited toward your tuition fees.
