First of all, remember that your offer of admission to UBC was based on a combination of your academic profile and your Personal Profile. So when we receive your final grades, we’ll be looking at them alongside your Personal Profile.
Our process and timeline
In May, we’ll review grades for students who received first-round offers and students who self-reported and were admitted in the March-to-April timeframe. That’s when we’ll verify that the grade information submitted to UBC is accurate. If we have any concerns with your grades, we’ll reach out to you directly.
In July, we’ll review final grades. If you meet the conditions on your offer of admission, we’ll update your offer to reflect that.
What you can do
Most students are looking for a definitive answer: “Tell me exactly how much my grades can drop before I lose my offer.” But we can’t say: “Everyone whose grades drop more than X%, or drop below Y%, will lose their offers.”
Each student’s situation is unique and we review changes in academic standing on a case-by-case basis. We don’t like to withdraw offers, but we must ensure that they’re awarded consistently and fairly, and that you have a solid foundation for success.
Certain grade changes may cause us to look at your application more closely when your final grades are submitted. Our best advice is to keep working hard to present your best final grades so we can confirm your offer of admission to UBC.
