We now have an updated Covid FAQ page that addresses some commonly asked questions regarding how KPU is adapting to Covid during this time.

 Application Deadlines:

 June 1st is the deadline for students who have received an offer from KPU towards an open-intake programto pay their confirmation deposit for priority registration this fall. Registration for the Fall 2020 semester will begin in July. However, we will be accepting applications until August 1st, 2020 for the upcoming Fall 2020 semester for open-intake programs.

Some limited intake programs have been extended past the March 1st deadline. Here is a list of the programs that are still available for applications.

As a reminder, if grade 12 students who have applied to KPU haven’t re-submitted their transcripts through STS since the beginning of spring break, they will need to go in and re-submit their permission for KPU to be able to access their transcripts once they are released to Post-Secondary Institutions in July. We have had a great response in the re-submission of transcripts for grade 12 students through STS so far, and we wanted to say thank you! This wouldn’t have been possible without you! Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have any additional questions about this process.
