UBC evaluates your UBC application once it’s complete, which means we need to receive all your grades and other required information first. With 40,000 applications coming in from different school systems around the world, we receive all those grades and supporting documents at 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. But don’t worry: UBC uses the same admissions criteria for everyone. Students who receive offers by the end of February have to meet the same admissions criteria as those who receive offers in March or April.
