Do I need to apply for readmission?

If you previously registered in credit courses at UVic and have been away for more than one year (three terms), you'll need to apply for readmission before you can register for future courses. When you submit your application, you can choose to return to your previous program or request a new one.

For example, if your last course at UVic was in Spring 2022 (January-April), you'll need to apply for readmission before you can register in courses that begin in May 2023 (or afterward).

If you've taken courses anytime within the last two sessions (Winter and Summer) and are in good academic standing, you're still considered to be a current UVic student and will be authorized to register for courses. You may want to contact an academic adviser for guidance on resuming your studies.

Admission requirements

Your application for readmission will be evaluated based on:

  • your academic record at UVic
  • courses you've completed at other post-secondary institutions

You must submit official transcripts for courses completed at other post-secondary institutions while you were away from UVic.

Students who were required to withdraw

If you were required to withdraw from UVic, your transcripts must show that you've completed the coursework necessary for readmission. Check the conditions stated in the email you received from UVic when you were required to withdraw.

Changing your program

If you request to change your program, you'll be evaluated as a transfer student and will need to meet the admission requirements for the new program. This may include providing supplemental information such as a resume or portfolio.

To view the admission requirements for transfer students, find your program and indicate that you are a transfer student or a graduate from college or university.

Application deadlines

Refer to the academic calendar to see application deadlines by faculty and program.

Application fees

The application fee for readmission is $22. You'll pay this fee when you submit your online application.

If you completed coursework at another post-secondary institution, an additional fee of $51 will apply to evaluate your new transcripts. This fee is assessed after your application and transcripts are received, and you'll be contacted by Undergraduate Admissions with instructions for paying it.

  1. Log in to the UVic online application with your Netlink ID.
  2. Select "Start a new application" and complete the questions.
