UBC application deadline is near

UBC application deadline is near

Deadlines: post-secondary life is going to be full of them, so it’s a good idea to not miss the first – and arguably the most important – one. If you’re planning on applying to UBC for the 2018/19 academic year, this is a friendly reminder that you have less than two weeks to complete your online application.

If you’re still working on your application

If you’re still finishing things up, please remember that you need to submit your application and pay your application fee by January 15 at 11:59 pm (PST).

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.

If you have questions

The answers to general questions – like personal profile inquiries or how UBC makes admissions decisions – can be found in our Applying to UBC section.

If there are specific things you want to discuss about your application, we’re happy to provide timely answers before the application deadline. Please contact us by phone, by email, visit us in person, or connect with us on Facebook or Twitter.
