Follow the international application steps below, if you are a citizen of another country and do not have permanent residency status in Canada.

We look forward to welcoming you to CapU.

Step 1: Apply for your program of choice

To prepare, learn about CapU's Admission Requirements, your desired program for specific program requirements and document deadlines, and the cost of your education at CapU.

Most programs require proof that you:

Apply online through the Education Planner BC portal. As part of this process, you will be asked to: 

  • Upload required and supporting documents such as high school transcripts, post-secondary transcripts, English translations (if applicable) and proof of English language proficiency.
  • Pay the application fee of CAD $135 for international students. 

Note: After you submit your application, you will receive an acknowledgment message in your personal email. This message will include your Student ID number and CapU email address, with instructions on how to track your application. Thereafter, all emails will be sent to your CapU email address.


You can track your application through your myCapU account.

Step 2: Receive your letter of offer and pay the tuition deposit

If your application is successful, we will email you a letter of offer.

To accept your offer of admission, you must pay a one-time CAD $5,000 tuition and fee deposit by the deadline specified in your offer. This deposit will go toward your first term tuition once you've registered for courses at CapU.

Step 3: Receive your letter of acceptance and apply for a study permit

Congratulations! Once you receive your letter of acceptance, you can use it to apply for or renew your study permit (and an entry visa, depending on citizenship).
