UBC Updates



We’d like to remind you that the final application deadline for the 2021/2022 academic year is January 15, 2021. Students can review the Okanagan and Vancouver admission requirements, as well as the  application process, online. We will reach out to applicants in late January via email with more information about collecting grades.

After applying to UBC

BC applicants who submit their UBC online application after December 2 must provide UBC with their Personal Education Number (PEN) and order a transcript via by January 31. When ordering a transcript, applicants should select “Send my transcript now and allow this post-secondary institution to request transcript updates”, and choose the default date (one year from the date of their order), so that UBC can receive their interim and final grades continuously.

First-round offers of admission for applicants who submitted their UBC online application on or before December 2 will be going out soon and will continue until the end of February.

Admissions blog

If students have questions about applying to UBC or the admissions process, be sure to tell them about the UBC admissions blog. We publish several posts each week about everything from admissions requirements and the online application to program options, financial planning, upcoming deadlines, and any COVID-related changes to our processes.
