If program seats are available, qualified applicants will receive a Letter of Offer. To accept the offer, students must pay the tuition deposits before the payment deadlines, which are usually within two weeks of the offer issued date. Applicants will then be issued a Letter of Acceptance if the tuition deposit is paid before the payment deadline indicated on the Letter of Offer.
The tuition deposit amount and payment deadline are indicated on the Letter of Offer. If the tuition deposit is not received by the deadline, the application will be withdrawn. If you need another week or two to make the full payment, please reply to firstname.lastname@example.org to email the request before the offer expires.
Once a Letter of Offer is issued, no changes to the program or intake will be permitted. If you wish to be considered for a different intake or program after receiving the offer, please re-apply.
Waitlisted applicants will not be required to pay tuition deposits unless an offer is available.
The Letter of Acceptance will be issued within a few days after your tuition deposit payments are received in your VCC student account, which can take days or weeks depending on your payment method. After receiving your Letter of Acceptance (LOA), review it to make sure there is no error.
Review the LOA to ensure your name on the LOA matches your passport.
The above process of name entry is consistent with the instructions from IRCC (Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada).
After you pay the standard tuition deposit, an LOA will be issued.
If additional payments are received after the initial LOA is issued, you may apply for your Study Permit via SDS (Student Direct Stream) with the initial LOA and include the payment receipts of all payments. No updated LOA will be re-issued.
An updated Letter of Acceptance (LOA) for the same program and for the same term may be issued upon request only if:
Apply for a Study Permit with the Letter of Acceptance. Students must provide proof of their study permit approval by the deadline indicated on the Letter of Acceptance. If students do not submit proof of Study Permit or Student Visa Approval to the VCC International Education office by the deadline, the program seat may not be guaranteed, and students may be deferred to the next available start date.
To prove your Study Permit approval, you can submit:
If students receive conditional admission, they must satisfy the conditions in order to receive full acceptance. The conditions and the deadlines are indicated on the Letter of Acceptance.
