Students are selected on the basis of personal and professional suitability as well as academic standing. An interview may be required as part of the application process. Paid or volunteer experience with children and/or youth is considered in the admission decision. Application information and forms are available on the SCYC website: <www.cyc.uvic.ca>. Application deadline is February 28.
Admission requirements for applicants from secondary school are the same as those outlined for the Faculty of Social Sciences (see this page).
All Secondary School applicants must submit an Application for Admission to the University to Undergraduate Admissions and a Child and Youth Care application to the School.
Students wishing to apply to the School of Child and Youth Care from other colleges or universities must either have completed a minimum of 12 units of university transfer courses or have completed a human services diploma from an accredited institution with an overall GPA of B.
All transfer applicants must submit an Application for Admission to the University to Undergraduate Admissions and a Child and Youth Care application to the School.
Students wishing to transfer from other Faculties at the University of Victoria must submit an Application for Re-registration to Records Services and a Child and Youth Care Application to the School.
Successful applicants must satisfy the program requirements as stated in the calendar of the year they enter the program and may be required to complete 100- and 200-level courses.
The School of Child and Youth Care is interested in extending university-level learning opportunities to residents of BC and other regions who wish to do their courses by distributed learning and who may not qualify under the normal categories of admission.
“Special Access” applicants admitted in the PRE CYC admissions category are advised to complete 12 units of coursework before applying to the degree program. Upon successful completion of these courses, students may apply to the Child and Youth Care degree program.
Those who qualify for consideration in the Special Category will be selected by the School of Child and Youth Care for admission in the Special Category on the basis of educational history and non-educational achievements that indicate an ability to succeed at university.
Students who wish to take individual credit courses for personal or professional interest, and will be at least 21 years of age prior to the first day of classes, may apply for admission to Exploratory Studies. Exploratory Studies students may take up to 3 units of courses per term, normally to a maximum of 12 units attempted overall, and will be classified as “non-degree” students. See also “Other Applicant Categories” in Undergraduate Admissions.
Students who have completed a human services professional academic program at an accredited institution with an overall GPA of B (5.0) or higher may be eligible to receive block credit upon admission to the SCYC (15 units for a one-year certificate and 30 units for a two-year diploma). This does not include vocational or continuing studies certificates or diplomas. For further information on transfer credit, consult the BC Child and Youth Care Educators’ website: <www.cycec.bc.ca>. While every effort is made to keep the website updated, the UVic calendar content takes precedence in the event of errors or discrepancies on the website.
