Some people say the art of snail mail is dead, but we disagree. There is no substitute for the tingly feeling you get from tearing open a crisp envelope, removing its contents, and getting the good news that you’ve been waiting for – like your offer of admission from UBC.
UBC has been sending out offers since December, and yours could arrive by mail or courier any time between now and May. To make sure there are no delays or errors, please log into the Student Service Centre (SSC) and make sure the address under Personal Info > Contact Summary is accurate. You can update your address information at any time in the SSC.
When updating your address
- Use your home mailing address where you live and will be applying for a study permit (if required). Using an address in a different location can cause problems in the study-permit process.
- Include a phone number at the same location as your home mailing address.
Check the status of your application
While you’re logged into the SSC, you can also check your application status, which is the most up-to-date information on your application. Keep in mind that we’re currently receiving a lot of documents from students, so if you’ve recently sent in a transcript or another required document, it will take some time for it to be updated in your profile.
