Home-schooled students

We welcome applications from home-schooled students.

To be eligible you must:

  • show proof that you completed a program that meets graduation requirements from a recognized educational curriculum
  • write any provincial examinations (or equivalents) required by your curriculum
  • meet the high school admission requirements for your intended program of study

How to apply

Apply with the standard application process for full-time undergraduate studies.

  • If you are able to self-report your grades or provide an official transcript, your application will be assessed the usual way.
  • If you are not able to report your grades, you must submit an appeal.

Submitting an appeal

Appeals are considered on an individual basis by the Senate Committee on Admissions, Reregistration and Transfer (SCART).

To submit an appeal, please send:

  • a letter of appeal explaining why you can’t meet the typical requirements
  • any relevant documentation that supports your potential for success, such as:
    • academic transcripts
    • Scholastic Achievement Test (SAT) scores
    • Advanced Placement (AP) results
    • Conservatory of Music courses
    • resumes
    • letters of reference

Your intended program may also require you to send supplemental documents before the application deadline. Your appeal will not be forwarded to SCART until an academic department has evaluated your application and indicated its support for you to be accepted.


Don’t hesitate to contact a UVic recruiter who can answer any of your questions about applying to UVic as a home-schooled student.
