COVID-19 update: In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, VIU’s exam centre has canceled all in-person exams and assessments. The safety of our students, employees, and broader community continues to be the priority. All in-person exams will remain cancelled until Spring 2021 at the earliest. VIU’s exam centre remains open for remote student support.

At this time we have capacity to support remote proctoring for external institutions who have approved invigilation via Zoom.
