Self-reporting for BC/Yukon applicants closes April 14

We hope you enjoyed a lovely spring break. While you were away, we have been reading as many personal profiles as possible so you should have your admission decision by mid-April.

This is a reminder that self-reporting is mandatory and will close on April 14.

BC and Yukon applicants in a full-year system

If your school’s courses run from September to June, please wait until you receive your Term 2 report card to self-report your grades. If you self-report before you receive this report card, you will be doing so incorrectly.

If you have already received your Term 2 report card, please self-report your grades.

BC and Yukon applicants in a semestered system

If you are taking semestered courses, you can report your grades right away — and please do. Please do not report Semester 2 grades, only list the courses you are currently taking and leave the grade section blank. For more detailed instructions, please visit the BC & Yukon self-reporting instructions.

We look forward to evaluating your application very soon. You will not be disadvantaged if you are waiting for your Term 2 report card (full-year system) to self-report.

Living on campus is more than just a practical option for housing – it’s a great way to immerse yourself in the UBC student experience. All first-year undergraduates who enter UBC from high school are guaranteed a place in residence, but you must apply by May 1, 2017 (if you didn’t already do so as part of your UBC online application). The UBC housing application will close on May 1, 2017.

If you’re not planning to live on campus, you can build your own home away from home at the Collegia on UBC’s Vancouver campus and Okanagan campus. These are on-campus spaces where you can relax, store food, and connect with new friends.

Feeling at home on campus

No matter where you live, you will be part of a supportive environment that’s designed to help you adjust to university and enjoy your time as a student, meet new people, and make lifelong friends.

You’ll also have a range of meal options (Vancouver campus | Okanagan campus) to choose from.
