After you have applied...

Access your VIU Student Record – Once you have applied to VIU, your first communication will include an assigned student number and you can access your VIU online Student Record. You need your student number and birth date to begin and create a PIN. A security question and answer is also required for security during phone communications with VIU and to control who can access your private student information. If your parent/guardian, partner or friend can provide your student number and security question answer, VIU staff can provide information from a VIU Student Record which is otherwise private and available only to the student.

Order BC Transcripts  - Leave your Send Option selection as default to "Send Interim and Final Marks when they become available" unless a paper copy is needed immediately.

Request hard copy transcripts and interim reports from your high school for limited entry programs that require final or interim marks by a deadline.  Read your letters and emails from Registration Services carefully and thoroughly and know that deadlines are firm.

Apply for Incoming Outstanding Student status if you qualify. Qualified students are encouraged to apply for this recognition and earn the highest  course registration priority

Determine where you will live. If you want to live on campus, apply for VIU Residences when you apply to your program. VIU Residence is pleased to offer a first-year residence Guarantee.
