What is UBC 101?

From textbooks to housing, medical insurance to degree planning, UBC 101 will set you up with the knowledge to help you succeed when you arrive on campus. As a new-to-UBC Okanagan student, you’ll be automatically enrolled in UBC 101. This course contains a series of online modules that will:

  • Introduce you to the history, traditions, and culture of UBC Okanagan.
  • Guide you through your academic transition to university.
  • Introduce you to on-campus support services.

The modules are designed to familiarize you with UBC Okanagan and the traditional territory where our students learn and grow. You’ll find out about all the advisors and orientation programs available to support you as you transition to UBC Okanagan. You will also learn more about the identity and cultural programs, career resources, learning supports, and wellness services that will assist you once you are on campus. Make sure you don’t miss the module that provides important information about course registration!
