Declare your program

Declaring your program is how you officially tell UVic what you want to study. 

As a UVic undergraduate student you are required to formally declare your program, even if you indicated an intended area of study on your application for admission. Declaring means that you'll be able to access your degree evaluation (CAPP report) and see exactly which requirements you've met, which requirements you still need to complete and which courses you have in progress.

Once you've submitted your program declaration request, it can take up to six weeks for it to be processed.

Review the eligibility requirements

Do you have 12.0 units of coursework completed (including transfer credit)?

Has your first registered term at UVic already started?

Have you reviewed our choose and plan section?

Have you spent time with the academic calendar and found 300- or 400-level courses in your area of interest that you are excited to take?

If you are declaring in the Faculty of Science (and you are currently in Social Sciences or Humanities), are you in good academic standing and have you reviewed the eligibility requirements to ensure that you have met them?

Submit a program declaration or program change request

Program declaration and program change requests are submitted online through DeclareMe. When submitting your request, you can let us know which calendar year you are following by typing it in the comment section. This is an optional step.

You can change your program once you've declared. Simply submit a program change request through DeclareMe and we will update your record.

Please note: you can only submit one declaration or program change request per term. If you need to adjust your program within that time frame, please contact the Academic Advising Centre at .

Submit a diploma or certificate program declaration request

To add a diploma or certificate, you can submit a request through DeclareMe.

Currently, DeclareMe does not have the diploma or certificate programs in the drop-down menu; however, you can simply submit a program change request that mirrors your currently declared program, noting your intended diploma or certificate addition in the comments.

Declare an honours program

Once you have applied to your department and received acceptance to an honours program, you can submit a declaration request (if you've not already declared your program) or a program change request.

Please note: you will need to submit your honours declaration request as a request for a major program (there is no honours option). Select "I am interested in completing my program with honours" and "I have already applied to the Chair or Honours Adviser for my department". Many students also choose to put a note in the comment section advising us that they have been accepted into an honours program.

Review your CAPP report

Once you have submitted your program declaration request, you will get an email confirmation that it has been received. Two to six weeks later, you will receive an email from one of our academic advisers to let you know that your report has been updated.

Please note: depending on the time of year and the volume of requests we receive, it may take longer than six weeks for an adviser to process your CAPP report.

Once you have received the email from your adviser, you will be able to access your degree evaluation (CAPP report) online. To do so, log in to your online tools and selecting Grades & Records, and then CAPP report/Degree evaluation.
