Documents required for applications vary by programs. Check individual programs for specific admissions requirements. Application documents may include:
All academic credentials, transcripts and test scores submitted to the college must be official.
Scanned and photocopied documents are accepted for initial evaluation purposes. Students must submit official and original documents for final verification before classes begin. Official and original documents may include transcripts, graduation certificate or diploma, and other educational documents submitted during the application process. Students may deliver the documents to the VCC International Education Office in person or by mail.
If transcripts are written in a language other than English, an official copy of an authorized English translation must be submitted in addition to the original transcript. Translations must be literal, complete versions of original records, and the documents must be translated by a recognized translation service such as MOSAIC (Multilingual Orientation Service Association for Immigrant Communities). Further information about certified translations can be accessed through the Society of Translators and Interpreters of British Columbia.
Documents submitted in support of an application for admission or transfer credit become the property of the College. Replaceable documents (eg. US/Canadian transcripts) will not be returned. Irreplaceable documents will be returned directly to the student after the admission evaluation is complete. For applicants who do not attend VCC, documents will be kept on file for one year only. For those who attend VCC, admission documents may be destroyed ten years after a student's last registration. VCC does not provide photocopies for students or return scanned copies of documents submitted in support of an application for admission or transfer credit.
