Accepting an offer of admission to UBC

Accepting an offer of admission to UBC

By now, many of you will have received an offer of admission to UBC. Congratulations on all of your hard work to reach this tremendous accomplishment! Now you must formally accept your offer before the deadline and pay the acceptance deposit to confirm your spot at UBC.

The deadline for you to accept depends on when your offer was made and to which program you’ve been accepted. For example, if you were offered admission to the Bachelor of Commerce degree in April, your accept date was May 1. For the majority of programs where decisions were made in April/May, your accept date is June 1.

Where do I find my accept date?

• On your offer of admission letter (page 2).
• On the UBC Student Service Centre following the Accept or Decline My Offer link.

How do I formally accept my offer?

To accept your offer, visit the Student Service Centre and follow Accept My Offer. It’s also essential to pay the acceptance deposit at the same time: CAD $500 for Canadian citizens and permanent residents, and CAD $1,000 for international students. This deposit will be credited to your first term’s tuition.

Do not miss your acceptance deadline!

Be sure to accept your offer on or before the stipulated deadline. Because of the extremely high demand for spaces at UBC, if you miss the deadline, your offer is likely to be withdrawn and made to another student.
