Reminder: When to upload your documents

If you haven't got your documents ready to upload at the time that you apply to UBC, don’t worry – you’re not required to yet.

The deadline to upload those documents will differ depending on whether you’re a Canadian or international student, what province you’re studying in, whether you’re a transfer student, and the curriculum you’re learning.
