BC and Yukon applicants: Important admissions dates

BC and Yukon applicants: Important admissions dates

If you’re a Grade 12 student in BC or the Yukon, here are some important dates and deadlines to mark on your calendar.

January 31

Make sure you have submitted your post-secondary institution (PSI) choices form to the Ministry of Education indicating that you are applying to UBC so that UBC can receive your official grade information in May. If you have not done so, check in with your high school counsellor.

February 1

Deadline for distributed learning/online courses to be 100% complete if you want them to be used in the calculation of your UBC admission average.

February 15

If you entered the BC/Yukon school system after Grade 9, February 15 is the deadline for your counsellor or principal to submit a request for you to be waived UBC Vancouver’s language 11 requirementPlease instruct your counsellor to submit this request — and be sure to give them plenty of advance notice. To apply for exemption, UBC needs a written statement from your principal or counsellor indicating your date of entry and grade of entry into the BC school system and your UBC reference number. Statements must be emailed to language11.waiver@ubc.ca.

March 3 – April 14

The self-reporting link on your UBC Student Service Centre will be live. You need to input your courses and grades so that our office can calculate your UBC admissions average. Students should self-report by March 20.

Students in linear schools with a Term 2 report card date after March 20 will have until April 14 to self-report. Read the BC & Yukon self-reporting instructions early so you are ready to report your grades when you receive the relevant report card.

Mid-March – end of April

You will receive an admissions decision from UBC.

May 1

Deadline for most students to submit housing application to be eligible for priority access, and to accept UBC’s offer of admission and pay the acceptance deposit. (Some students’ deadline will be June 1. Please refer to your letter of admission or the Student Service Centre to find your assigned date.)

Mid-May

UBC receives your official grade information from the BC Ministry of Education. We will verify your self-reported grades against the information we receive from the Ministry, and will email you if anything is amiss.

  1. Hi there,

    There are inconsistencies on the deadline for accepting the offer. May 1st on letter of admission and June 1st on SSC. The SSC states that the deadline will be right beside the accept tab. However, the recent promotional email I received asking me to accept my offer should I find the date on the letter.

    Please advise which date should I take reference of.
