3 STEPS

TOWARDS BECOMING A STUDENT

STEP 1
Apply

Research the programs that interest you. Once you have made your decision, apply for the programs of your choice at: capilanou.ca/apply

The application fee is $50 for domestic students and $135 for international students. Different programs have different application dates. The early application deadlines for Arts & Sciences and Business programs are March 31 (Fall), September 15 (Spring) and January 31 (Summer). For other programs, contact a program representative for deadlines. Apply early to avoid disappointment.

STEP 2
Submit supporting
documentation for admission

To be admitted, you must meet the general admission requirements of the University as well as any requirements of the program to which you are applying. Be sure to review the admission requirements and submit the documents that demonstrate you have met these requirements. See: capilanou.ca/calendar or capilanou.ca/programs

If you are a current B.C. high school student you may self-report your grades between January 15 and March 31 for the fall semester.

International Students: Upon receiving a Letter of Offer, international students must pay a tuition deposit. As soon as the Centre for International Experience (CIE) receives this deposit, a Letter of Acceptance will be issued, which can be used to renew or apply for a study permit.

STEP 3
Register for classes
and pay your tuition

You will receive information about registration through your Capilano U email account including the date and time that you can start registering — we call this your “Time Ticket.” Register as soon as possible after that time for the best course selection. If you need help selecting courses, contact academic advising at 604.984.4900 or advising@capilanou.ca.

To confirm your registration, pay the balance of your tuition before the fee payment deadline. See: capilanou.ca/fees. Some payments take time to process. Please make payments up to 10 days before the fee deadline to confirm your registration. Always quote your Capilano University student number with any payment.
