Deadlines for distributed learning courses
Distributed learning courses are online or distance learning courses offered by a distributed learning provider.
Coursework that was delivered remotely for COVID-19 safety reasons by your high school is not considered distributed learning or distance learning.
If you are currently attending a Canadian high school and you are taking distributed learning courses to meet your application degree requirements, please arrange for interim (50% complete) grades to be submitted to UBC by March 15. These courses must be complete by June 30.
