This year, we’ve received more than 8,000 applications from high school students who follow the Canadian curriculum and will be considered for a first-round offer of admission. That’s a lot of Personal Profiles to read! We’re already sending out first-round offers of admission and will continue to send them through to February 28. If you don’t receive an offer by February 28, don’t worry – no one will be refused admission during first-round offers of admission.
If I am not admitted by February 28, what do I do?
UBC is reviewing student applications every week. High school students who applied before the December 1 deadline will be admitted on different days as the weeks go by. All students who follow the Canadian curriculum and met the December 1 deadline will be considered for first-round offers of admission, and all of those offers will be finalized by February 28.
If you are not admitted by February 28, sit tight and follow the instructions we send you by email for additional grade information.
Can someone tell me if I’ll receive an offer?
If you contact our front-line team, they will not be able to tell you if you will be admitted. If you want to know what your current status is, have a look at your Student Service Centre (SSC). When you visit the SSC, you can learn about where your application is in the process by viewing your “Applicant Status.” The messaging on your Applicant Status will tell you if you have successfully submitted your application, list your dates and deadlines, and lay out your next steps.
If you have already been admitted, your applicant status will tell you that. If it does not say that you are admitted, check back after February 28. At that time, you’ll see new instructions that you must follow.
