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 StudentTranscripts.gov.bc.ca 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.
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.

Hey Burnaby South!!
University of Toronto is holding a Virtual Information Session for Burnaby School District students and parents
In order to attend, you MUST register FIRST through this link: https://apply.adm.utoronto.ca/register/?id=ce9e7d0a-2ccf-4370-9af8-68bdd572bb60
Once you register for the session, you will receive a link to join via email and will also receive follow up reminders before the session starts.

In recent weeks, we have received numerous questions and concerns from students and parents about UBC’s admissions process this year.
We understand from these discussions that students may be adjusting to changes, such as new learning delivery methods, modified school schedules with less flexibility in course selection, and limited access to extracurricular activities at school or in your community.
We understand that adjusting to these changes can be challenging and want to reassure you that, as the school year unfolds, we will assess and adjust our current processes to ensure that students’ applications to UBC are not disadvantaged.
We will be flexible and responsive and are carefully watching and listening to accommodate these changes in this year’s admissions process.
As decisions are made, we will continue to update the the " Special message about your UBC application and COVID-19" post on our Admissions Blog
Special message about UBC applications and COVID-19
We will be as flexible as possible to ensure that your students’ applications to UBC are not disadvantaged by COVID-19 (coronavirus) disruptions.
We know that – like all students around the world – you are adjusting to ongoing changes meant to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and keep everyone in schools safe. We are carefully watching and listening, so we can accommodate these changes in this year’s admissions process.
We want to reassure you that as these disruptions and changes continue to roll out, UBC will assess and adjust our current processes. Keep checking your email and our blog post to discover any flexibilities and changes.
