BC and Yukon applicants: Self-reporting closes on April 13

BC and Yukon applicants: Self-reporting closes on April 13

While you were away for spring break, we’ve been reading as many Personal Profiles as possible so that you can have your admission decision by mid-April. In the meantime, we need you to self-report your grades (it’s mandatory!) by the April 13 deadline.

Full-year systems

If your courses run from September to June, please wait until you receive your Term 2 report card to self-report your grades. If you’ve already received your Term 2 report card, you can self-report your grades now. If you’re still waiting for your Term 2 report card, don’t worry. You won’t be disadvantaged in any way.

Semestered systems

If your school runs on a semestered system, please report your grades right away. For Semester 2, list the courses you’re currently taking and leave the grade section blank.

For detailed instructions on reporting your grades, visit our BC and Yukon self-reporting page. We look forward to evaluating your application very soon!

BC and Yukon applicants: Reporting your English 12 results

BC and Yukon applicants: Reporting your English 12 results

During the self-reporting period, we receive lots of questions about English 12 and the English 12 Provincial Exam. Here are answers to two of the most common questions we hear.

How do I report my final English 12 grade if I have not yet written my provincial exam?

 

  1. Under Course Type, indicate whether you took English 12 at a physical high school or via distributed learning/online.
  2. Under Grade Type, indicate that your English 12 grade is a Final Grade.
  3. Enter your final English 12 grade in the GR12 School % box.
  4. Enter 0 (zero) in the GR12 Exam % box.
  5. Enter 0 (zero) the GR12 Final % box.

I’m retaking English 12. Can I report my new interim grade?

If you are retaking the course from September to June at your home school, you can report your new interim English 12 grade as it appears on the high school report card that you receive between March 5 and April 14.

If you are retaking the course in Semester 2 (from February to June), you can only report your old English 12 grade and not your new interim grade from Semester 2.

Tour UBC’s Okanagan and Vancouver campuses

Tour UBC’s Okanagan and Vancouver campuses

If you’re still in the process of figuring out whether UBC is the right place for you, we highly recommend visiting us in person for a campus tour.

You can find lots of great info and photos on TwitterInstagram, and Snapchat, but there’s really no substitute for setting foot on campus, talking with current students face-to-face, and having them show you some of the places where you’ll spend time as a first-year student at UBC.

What to expect

Your guided walking tour will include:

  • visits to a residence, a library, and some of the recreational and social facilities on campus;
  • an overview of the kinds of services available to UBC students.

After the tour, an advisor will be available to answer your questions about academic programs, admissions, scholarship opportunities, and more for undergraduate students at UBC.

Can’t visit in person?

No problem! Get a feel for our two campuses with our virtual tours, then explore #UBCtour on social for a taste of what you’d see on an in-person campus tour.

What the heck are rolling admissions?

What the heck are rolling admissions?

UBC evaluates your UBC application once it’s complete – so after we’ve received your grades and other required information. With 40,000 applications coming in from different school systems around the world, we receive tons of grades and supporting documents at all different times.

We can’t evaluate everyone’s application at the same time, so we send out admissions decisions as we receive and review information. That’s what we mean by rolling admissions.

If we received your grade information early in the year, we may have evaluated your application in January or February. If you’re a BC or Yukon applicant, self-reporting recently opened and admissions decisions will roll out in March and April.

But don’t worry: UBC uses the same admissions criteria for everyone. Students who receive offers in February have to meet the same admissions criteria as those who receive offers in March, April, and beyond.

Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and the Maritimes: UBC document upload deadline is March 8

Have you uploaded your documents to the Student Service Centre yet? Document upload will be closing on Thursday, March 8, so be sure to get your documents in as soon as you have them.

Check out our tips on uploading your documents.

If you are an International Baccalaureate student in Saskatchewan, Manitoba, or the Maritimes, we will receive your anticipated IB results directly from your IB coordinators, so you do not need to upload documents to complete your application.

Have questions? Email us at grades.canada@ubc.ca and include your full name and UBC student number so we can assist you.

So you’ve applied to UBC, and now you’re wondering: “Did they get my documents?” and “When will I receive my admission decision?”

Tens of thousands of UBC applicants from across Canada and around the world have the same questions. The UBC Admissions Office is doing its best to read every applicant’s Personal Profile and transcript as carefully – and quickly – as possible. We’re swamped with applicant documents, but we’re working very hard to give you a decision as soon as we can.

Once we have evaluated your application, you will see our decision on the UBC Student Service Centre.

If you have sent your documents to us within the past five to six weeks, please be patient with us and we will update your status shortly.

In the meantime, consider coming out to one of our applicant information events, where you can get answers to all your burning questions about life at UBC. We have events scheduled for Canadian, American, and international students. Please join us!

We’re pleased to announce that first round offers of admission are now complete. UBC had a limited number of first round offers to extend, and all students who received a first round offer of admission will now see that in the UBC Student Service Centre under Admissions > Application Status.

What are my next steps if I did not receive a first round offer of admission?
