Getting Started

Apply to the North Island College University Studies program. There are no formal admission requirements for the University Studies program; however, courses will have specific entry requirements, called prerequisites, which are listed under each course description. A minimum C letter grade in English 12 is often required.
To be eligible for UVic Guaranteed Admission, you must:

To Be Eligible

  1. Complete at least 24 credits (8 courses) of university transfer courses that are eligible for transfer to UVic. Students are responsible for ensuring that their chosen courses transfer to their intended program of study at the university. Please use the BC Transfer Guide online to check transferability AND meet with an NIC student advisor for guidance BEFORE registering in courses.
  2. Achieve a minimum G.P.A. of 2.0 (C letter grade) average on your most recent 24 credits of NIC coursework prior to entering studies at the University of Victoria.
  3. Admission to programs within UVic’s Faculty of Science requires completion of specific math and science courses at the high school or post secondary level.

When you are ready to transfer to UVic, submit your admission request to UVic by completing this form and sending it with your NIC transcripts to UVic Undergraduate Admissions.

Make sure your courses count. Each UVic degree and major has its own list of required courses and electives that count toward graduation. You should review UVic’s Online Calendar to find out your program’s first and/or second-year requirements, then meet with an educational advisor to determine which courses at your local NIC campus will earn you the most transfer credit toward your chosen UVic program.
