Vancouver Island University Application Instructions

Applications process of conditional acceptances at Vancouver Island University:

  1. Undergraduate Programs: There could be two conditions when the student is applying. A student will still be given a conditional offer letter even if the Grade-12 results and IELTS scores are pending.
  2. Graduate (Masters and PDD) and Limited Entry Programs: There could only be one condition when the student is applying. A student will get a conditional offer letter if one of the conditions is pending, i.e., Degree completion or IELTS scores. [Vancouver Island University (VIU) accepts all 3-year Bachelor degrees programs for an admission into a Master]

Please note:

  • The payment deadline on the conditional offer letter could be well before the student is expecting to meet the conditions.
  • Therefore, if the student is borderline, and in case there’s a doubt if the student is going to meet the admission requirements, it is recommended to apply with all the final scores.
  • VIU also tries to avoid this situation by accepting high quality candidates.
  • In case the student is not able to meet the requirements, VIU will be processing a refund, minus the administrative fee.

Important improvements to VIU’s processing of international student applications.

  1. Acceptance of Electronic Documents: As of October 3rd all ESL, Undergraduate  and Post Degree Diploma program applications can be done fully online. This will include submission of online documents! Please use the online application form at the following link: (Please note that for all Master Degree applications electronic documents will be accepted with the online application.
