Waitlist

Most programs at VCC have limited seat capacity, and many are oversubscribed. Waitlists are accepted for most programs, as seats may open up due to cancellations or if additional capacity becomes available. Students are encouraged to apply early within the application periods while the higher chance of getting an offer is higher.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Waitlist Notification

Applications are accepted when the status shows "Apply Now". If seats are full or reserved, applicants will receive a one-time waitlist notification. Qualified applicants will be placed on waitlists and get notified only if seats become available. There will be no regular updates of the waitlist position.

 

Waiting for a Seat

Even if a program is full, seats may become available due to student cancellations or additional sessions added. Being on the waitlist does not guarantee an offer or a program seat. There is no regular update available, and waitlisted applicants will only be contacted if an offer is available.

 

Consider Future Intakes

Being on the waitlist does not guarantee a seat, and the wait time cannot be estimated. Some students receive offers within a few weeks, some never get offers. Waitlisted applicants will not be moved automatically to the next available intake. Students are encouraged to apply to future intakes while applications are accepted.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some commonly asked questions and answers about waitlists.


Even if all program seats are offered, seats may still become available due to non-acceptance/non-payments, student cancellations, or additional sessions added. Qualified applicants will be placed on waitlists and get notified when seats become available.


Until all offers are accepted, VCC will continue to accept applications on the waitlist. If program seats are all filled, VCC will only keep a few students on the waitlist and will close the program for applications.


Being on the waitlist does not guarantee an offer or a program seat. Application fee is non-refundable even if no seat opens up. Students are encouraged to apply to multiple intakes when applications are accepted.


Many factors influence how long a student may be on the waitlist, including program capacity, offer acceptance rate, study permit approval rates and student cancellation. Therefore, it's difficult to estimate how long a student may be on a waitlist.


There is no regular update available. Waitlisted students will only be contacted if an offer is available.


This information is not available. Waitlist status changes on a constant basis.


We cannot assume students are interested in future intakes. Students must inform VCC to confirm their applications to other intakes.


Waitlisted students are offered by the dates when admission requirements are met. However, closer to the program start dates, students with a valid study permit will have a higher chance of receiving a last-minute offer.


We encourage students to apply to future intakes when the application period is open, to increase the chance of receiving an offer.
