Select One Program

Applicants will only be considered for one program per application. Applications for more than one program in the same intake are not accepted.


Check Application Availability

Check application availability and apply if the program status indicates "Apply Now".

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.


Apply by Email

Include all of the following in one email to study@vcc.ca if the status is "Apply Now".


Application forms with incomplete information will be discarded, and re-submission of application packages will be required. Please ensure all mandatory fields are entered, such as phone numbers, emergency contacts, and other important information.
