How to apply to a program

To apply to a program online, you will need:

  • a valid credit card
  • Netlink ID (If you are a new student, then you will be prompted to create a new account and will be assigned a new ID)
  1. Find the program you want. Review the admission requirements to make sure you're eligible.
  2. Click the APPLY ONLINE button.
  3. Fill out and submit the online application. If you have an existing NetLink ID, you will need to sign in. Otherwise, you will be asked to create a new account.
  4. After you’ve filled out the online application, you’ll be taken to a secure page where you can pay the application fee(s) by credit card.


It may also be possible for students to register by mail, fax, email or in-person. Please contact the Program Coordinator for more information. 

For Continuing Studies credit programs, you should apply to the program before applying for admission to UVic. If you’re a current UVic student, you only need to apply to the program.
