Did you know that you can apply to study at UBC even if you’ve already begun your studies at another post-secondary institution? Every year, the University receives and reviews more than 9,000 post-secondary transfer applications from students in Canada and elsewhere around the world.
Application assessments in light of COVID-19
We are in the process of evaluating applications and are in close contact with your post-secondary institution and local decision-makers to determine next steps. Please rest assured that you will not be disadvantaged by any disruptions you’re experiencing due to COVID-19. If you applied by December 1, your application will be evaluated on the interim grades that you have already provided. If we ask you for a final transcript, we will evaluate your application based on the available grades from that document. In the event that we require any additional information from you in order to process your application, an advisor will be in touch.
Offers of admission
Admission decisions are posted in the Student Service Centre. Keep an eye on your Applicant Status for the most up-to-date information.
Any transfer credits that you have been granted will be posted in the Student Service Centre under Grades & Records. If you are transferring from a BC institution, you can use the online BC Transfer Guide to determine what transfer credit you can receive. Please note that in some cases, your transfer credits may not appear until you’ve accepted your offer and paid your deposit.
If you have a prior degree, transfer credits are not assessed. Please connect with your faculty advising office to determine second-degree requirements. Remember that you can only satisfy up to 50% of your second degree with credits from your first degree, even if your first degree is from UBC.
If you have questions about your post-secondary transfer application or transfer credits, please contact us.
