Here’s a handy guide to the steps you’ll take – from choosing a program to the first day of class – on your journey to become a student at Capilano University.

Steps to Become a CapU Student

Explore Our Areas of Study to see what piques your interest and go to Find a Program or Course for details on:

  • what you'll learn
  • the courses you'll take
  • who your instructors will be
  • what you’ll pay in tuition & fees.

Your university education is a big investment and it's important to have a clear idea of your costs and a plan for how you'll pay.

Learn about CapU tuition fees and costs, as well as how to pay, in Fees & Finances. While you're there, check into the Financial Aid & Awards that might help you meet your expenses.

Our step-by-step guide on How to Apply includes:

  • checking that you meet the admission requirements
  • ensuring you meet application deadlines
  • paying your application fee
  • submitting supporting documents such as transcripts.

Once you've been accepted at CapU, you’ll receive a notice of your Registration Time Ticket through your myCapU account a few weeks before registration starts. The Registration Time Ticket tells you the date and time when you can begin to register online for your courses.

To prepare, choose your courses and plan your schedule in advance – then get set to register at the time of your Registration Time Ticket.

Follow the detailed guides in How to Register.

You pay your fees once you've registered for your courses.

See How to Pay for all your payment options, and be sure to pay by the Fee Payment Deadline.
