Creating a UVic NetLink ID

Note for Continuing Studies students: Before you can apply for a NetLink-ID, you must have a UVic student number (a ‘V-number’) and you must be registered in at least one course. If this is your first course at UVic and you have not already received your UVic student number, contact the program area from which you are taking this course or Continuing Studies Registration.
