Applicants may apply to one program at a time. If you have an active application on file and wish to apply to a different program at VCC, you must first withdraw your current application before applying to the new program of interest. Application fees are non-refundable and non-transferable among VCC programs.
Many popular programs and selection programs may close applications earlier. To find out if a program is accepting applications, check the Application Availability page. As application fees are non-refundable and non-transferable between programs, only apply if the application availability status indicates "Apply Now" based on your study permit status.
Offers are not guaranteed, and qualified applicants may be placed on the waitlist if program seats are full or reserved. Apply as soon as the application period is open to increase the chance of getting an offer.
