Academic planning within, or transfer to, another faculty

The Academic Advising Centre does not provide support for students studying in a faculty or program outside of Humanities, Science or Social Sciences (e.g.  .

For assistance, students should contact the  adviser for the program they are planning to pursue.


Preparing for a post-degree program, or a program at another institution

Students preparing for a graduate program at UVic should contact the academic unit adviser for the department or school in which they are interested, and review the admission requirements for the program.

Students preparing for a program at another institution (either post-degree or transfer) are advised to contact the institution to which they will be applying for the most accurate and up-to-date information on admission requirements and UVic transfer credit. 

The Academic Advising Centre maintains a list of course equivalencies for admission to a number of popular post-degree professional programs within Canada, but we are not equipped to help interpret admission requirements for other programs or to make recommendations on course selection to support admissibility.


Support with registering for courses

The Academic Advising Centre is not able to register students in courses directly, nor does the centre assist students with the process of registering for courses. For support, students should review the online course registration tutorials, or contact the registration support line.


Questions regarding your admission, transfer credit or transcripts

Questions regarding your admission status, evaluated transfer credit or your transcripts should be directed to the Office of the Registrar. Recently admitted students should contact their admissions clerk; current and returning UVic students should contact their records clerk. If you don't have your clerk's contact information, you can use the Office of the Registrar's online request form.
