Reminder: When to upload your documents

Reminder: When to upload your documents

If you don’t have your documents ready to upload at the time that you apply to UBC, don’t worry – you’re not required to yet.

The deadline to complete UBC’s online application is January 15, 2020.

Your supporting documents do not need to be uploaded until after you’ve submitted your application. The deadline to upload those documents will differ depending on whether you’re a Canadian or international student, what province you’re studying in, whether you’re a transfer student, and the curriculum you’re learning.

Most of those deadlines will fall in March 2020, but you should find out your exact date and requirements well ahead of time. After you’ve applied, UBC will send you an email that outlines which documents you are required to submit, and when you’re required to submit them.

For more tips on when and how to upload your documents, keep checking the UBC Admissions Blog.

If you have already applied

If you’ve already submitted your UBC application, then you’re ahead of the game and you should keep an eye on the Student Service Centre under Admissions > Application Status for any updates or to find out if UBC still needs any documents from you.

Please keep in mind that it may take two to three weeks for documents that you’ve submitted to be uploaded to your application, so don’t worry if you’ve sent in a transcript and you don’t see it in the Student Service Centre yet.

Don’t miss the Presidential Scholars Award deadline

Don’t miss the Presidential Scholars Award deadline

Don’t be late for this incredible opportunity!

Canadian citizens and permanent residents who want to be considered for a Presidential Scholars Award must complete their UBC application for admission by December 1, 2019 (11:59 pm Pacific Standard Time). That’s less than two weeks’ time.

Writing your online application and preparing your Personal Profile is not something you’ll want to rush, so make sure you’ve left enough time to complete both parts.

 

What are Presidential Scholars Awards?

Presidential Scholars Awards are one-time awards of approximately $5,000, and renewable awards of up to $80,000 which are paid over four years. The Awards are offered to Canadian high school students (including Quebec CEGEP students) who excel academically as well as demonstrating leadership achievements in the arts, community, athletics, or their school.

 

How do you apply?

If you are a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada, and you are applying to UBC from high school or CEGEP, you will be automatically considered for a Presidential Scholars Award based on the academic profile and Personal Profile sections of your online application.

 

Not interested in a Presidential Scholars Award?

If you don’t want to be considered for a Presidential Scholars Awards, you have until January 15, 2019 to apply to UBC. Don’t let that deadline stop you from applying earlier, though – with your application out of the way, you can truly relax over the winter break.

Start now by checking out our online application tips.
