Admissions

Readmission

This section applies to students who have previously attended UBC. For currently attending UBC students who wish to change to a different degree program or campus, please see Change of Degree Program (www.calendar.ubc.ca/okanagan/index.cfm?tree=2,274,0,0) or Change of Campus (www.calendar.ubc.ca/okanagan/index.cfm?tree=2,21,0,0).

Former UBC students who left In Good Standing and who have been away from certain UBC programs for less than one academic year may qualify for academic leave and be automatically eligible to register in the same program without applying for readmission. Please see Academic Leave (www.calendar.ubc.ca/okanagan/index.cfm?tree=3,326,0,0) for more information.

Former UBC students who left In Good Standing and whose automatic eligibility to register has expired must apply for readmission online through the Student Service Centre (students.ubc.ca/ssc) (under 'Admissions') and pay a non-refundable application fee. Eligibility for readmission to the same degree program at the same campus will be assessed on the basis of an applicant's performance in his/her last Winter Session at UBC. Eligibility for readmission to a different degree program (at the same or a different campus) will be assessed on the basis of an applicant's ability to satisfy applicable program-specific course requirements and meet the minimum competitive admission average of the program to which admission is sought.1

Former UBC students who had received an academic standing of Failed and had been required to discontinue studies at the University may be eligible to resume their program of study at the same campus. See Academic Standing (www.calendar.ubc.ca/okanagan/index.cfm?tree=3,41,91,0) and faculty academic regulations in Faculties, Schools, and Colleges (www.calendar.ubc.ca/okanagan/index.cfm?tree=18,0,0,0) for more information. Students will be required to submit an application and letter of appeal for readmission online through the Student Service Centre (students.ubc.ca/ssc) (under 'Admissions') and pay a non-refundable application fee.

Former UBC students who had received an academic standing of Failed and had been required to discontinue or withdraw from their studies at the University and who are seeking admission to a different UBC degree program or campus are advised that all University and program-specific admission and advancement criteria will apply. Students will be required to submit an application and letter of appeal for readmission online through the Student Service Centre (students.ubc.ca/ssc) (under 'Admissions') and pay a non-refundable application fee. Such applications will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and students are encouraged to contact Enrolment Services for additional information.

All applicants for readmission who have attended other post-secondary institutions since leaving UBC must submit transcripts of that study for assessment.

Students readmitted to a different program may normally transfer a maximum of 60 credits applicable to the new degree program.

Applicants who have completed a bachelor’s degree at UBC and who are readmitted to a second bachelor’s degree program must meet the program requirements specific for degree holders. Please see an academic advisor or a program advisor for more information.

1Academic evaluations are based on the average of the most recent courses attempted, including any failed or repeated courses, to a maximum of 30 credits unless otherwise prescribed by the program to which a student is applying. In cases where counting back 30 credits lands in the middle of an academic term, the average of that term will be used for the remaining credits required to reach the total of 30. Please see youbc Okanagan (you.ubc.ca/applying-ubc/university-college-transfer/) for more information.
