Alberta, Manitoba, the Maritimes, and Saskatchewan: upload your documents to UBC

Alberta, Manitoba, the Maritimes, and Saskatchewan: upload your documents to UBC

If you are a student in Alberta, Manitoba, the Maritimes, or Saskatchewan, here are a few tips on uploading your documents to UBC. If you attend a school outside these regions, read these document upload tips.

When do I upload my documents?

If you attend a school in Alberta, Manitoba, the Maritimes, or Saskatchewan, you can upload your documents between February 20 and March 15.

If you are completing an IB diploma at a school in these regions, you do not need to upload your documents. We will receive your anticipated IB grades directly from your IB Coordinator.

Which documents do I upload?

If you attend a semester school…

If you attend a semester school (courses are taken from September to January, and February to June), you will need to upload:

  • a transcript including final grades for your Grade 11 courses and final grades for your first-semester courses (if you are in Alberta, please include your final course grades and Provincial Exam results)
  • a list of in-progress courses as a separate document (this list can be written by hand as long as it is legible)

If your transcript does not contain any item listed above, you will need to wait until you have this information before you upload your documents.

If you attend a linear school…

If you attend a linear school (courses are taken from September to June), you will need to upload:

  • a transcript including final grades for Grade 11 courses and in-progress (interim) grades for all Grade 12 courses you are currently taking
  • a list of in-progress courses as a separate document (this list can be written by hand as long as it is legible)

If your transcript does not contain any item listed above, you will need to wait until you have this information before you upload your documents.

Document format and size

  • Your documents must be uploaded in PDF, TIFF, or JPEG format, and must not exceed 2 MB.
  • Multiple pages need to be collapsed into a single document. For example: If your transcript exceeds one page, you need to collapse the pages into a single PDF, TIFF, or JPEG and upload it through the Student Service Centre (SSC).

Please do not mail in a paper copy of your transcripts/report card. Doing so can slow down the review of your application. If you have any questions, please email grades.canada@ubc.ca. Please include your full name and UBC student number.

  1. Hi I am a grade 11 student from Calgary Alberta. I would like to apply for engineering at the end of grade 12 first semester. I was wondering if I take online courses like Math 30-1 and English 30-1 over the summer through ADLC (Alberta Distance Learning Centre) if they will still accept me into engineering assuming I get good grades online in those two courses?

    1. Hi Turja,

      Thanks for your interest in UBC! First off, you do not need to have all your required courses complete to apply. The application for 2018/19 will open in late August. You can apply anytime once it opens. After you apply we will get additional grade info from you to make a decision.

      Any distance course needs to be 100% complete by Feb. 1, 2018 if you want us to use it in your admission decision next year.

      Hope this helps. If you want to meet with us in person to ask further questions, we are at the Calgary Metropolitan Conference Centre on Saturday, April 22, 10:30am-12:00pm for an event. Stop by and say ‘Hi’.

      Best,

      Anthony
