If you are a domestic student (Canadian Citizen, Permanent Resident, or Convention Refugee) and have questions about our programs and how to apply, please contact the Future Students’ Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 604-599-3030, or visit kpu.ca/discover to learn about ways to connect with our team of Student Recruitment Coordinators.
When you’re ready to apply, go to kpu.ca/apply and follow the steps on Education Planner BC, a centralized resource for admission to post-secondary institutions in BC.
If you are applying to a limited intake program, please be sure to include a second choice from the open intake programs.
Consider attending an information session to receive more detailed information about a particular program. Be sure to check kpu.ca/info-sessions frequently, as information sessions are added on an ongoing basis.
After you’ve received an offer of acceptance to KPU, meeting with an academic advisor is highly recommended to discuss your options before choosing classes. Domestic students can schedule an appointment at kpu.ca/advising and international students can schedule an appointment at kpu.ca/international/advising.
Applying as early as possible is always advantageous as it allows for time to submit supporting documents as required.
What are KPU’s admission requirements?
All applicants to undergraduate or graduate studies must satisfy KPU's Undergraduate English Proficiency Requirement through an acceptable High school course (English Studies 12 with a minimum grade of C+), undergraduate course (completion of 3 credits of undergraduate English with a minimum grade of C-), or testing.
Some programs will have additional, program-specific entrance requirements. These requirements can be found at calendar.kpu.ca/programs-az.
If you don’t meet KPU’s admission requirements, you can look into upgrading options for your English, math, or science courses. The Pathway is a unique model that pairs upgrading and undergraduate studies with guided support, offering students an option to begin work toward their intended undergraduate program in the Faculty of their choosing while upgrading.
After applying you will receive an email from KPU with your student number.
You’ll be able to use your student number to log in to your Online Self-Service portal, where you can check your application status, find out whether you need to submit supporting documents with your application, and learn what your next steps are.
If you’re not able to access your Online Self-Service account at oss.kpu.ca, please contact the Service Management Portal at 604-599-2116, option 3.
Once you receive an offer of admission to KPU, be sure to accept the offer by paying your confirmation deposit before the deadline stated in the offer letter.
This is entirely up to you! While some full-time programs offer little spare time for work, many programs are very flexible and will allow time for you to work while you study.
In addition to off-campus job opportunities, there are paid work-study and student assistant jobs on campus.
The Career Development Centre helps students enter the working world. Their services include resume and cover letter review, networking, job listings, employer info sessions, training scholarships, career days and job fairs. For more information, please visit: kpu.ca/careers.
Some of our programs offer co-operative education opportunities, where students can alternate semesters of study with paid work semesters.
