After you've applied

Every year UBC reviews more than 40,000 applications and sends out admissions decisions from December through to April. After you submit your application, you may still have to submit additional documents. This waiting period is a great time to tour the campus and plan your finances.

 

Watch: I’ve applied to UBC. Now what?

Find out what happens after you’ve submitted your application, what you can do while you wait, and how to check your admission status.

Check your status

While we’re evaluating your application, you can log in to the Student Service Centre anytime for updates on your application status, upcoming deadlines, and outstanding documents and fees.

By May, UBC has offered admission to as many students as possible. We won’t know if there are additional spaces to fill until all of those students have decided whether or not to accept their offers. If you see in your Student Service Centre account that you have been waitlisted, there’s nothing left to do except wait a little longer. We will notify you if a space becomes available. If you wish to appeal an admission decision from UBC, please review the formal appeals process.

Submit your documents

UBC requires certain academic information to evaluate your application and determine whether you’ll receive an offer of admission. Your document requirements will vary depending on where you’re applying from and what degree(s) you’ve applied to.
