Next steps once you've applied

So, you've finished your application and paid your application fee. What's next?

All students will receive an email acknowledgement of your application within two days.

Open enrolment - students will next receive a letter or email with your Student Number, along with instructions for providing supporting documentation.(see below)

Limited enrolment - students will receive a letter or email acknowledging your application in about 1-2 weeks. You will be advised in writing of all the admission requirements for the program.If you meet all requirements, you may be eligible to receive an offer. Official seat offers are sent in writing. A seat offer means you are conditionally accepted into the program. At that point, some programs require a medical and/or criminal record search and a non-refundable/non transferable deposit to hold the seat.

If your application is incomplete: Enrolment Services will contact you by mail, phone or email, and let you know why your application is incomplete or has not been accepted.

Supporting Documentation

All students will need to mail or drop off the following to the Registrar's Office, if you have not already done so:

  • High school transcript (if you are currently in Grade 12, you must request that the Ministry of Education submit your transcript directly to Douglas College and for some programs you will have to provide an interim transcript by April 15)
  • Optional: post-secondary transcript from another institution and a Transfer Credit Request Form if courses you have previously completed are needed for admission or course prerequisites. Documents must be received at least 2 months before the start of the semester. Find out more about Transfer Credits.

Please note that all transcripts submitted are retained by the College and will not be returned to you.

Once you have been accepted, provided all necessary documentation, and completed any unique program requirements, you will be assigned a time to register for classes.
