Admission

The Faculty will accept applications from students with varying educational preparation: (1) following graduation from secondary school or (2) following completion of at least 24 credits at UBC or its equivalent at another post-secondary institution.

Students entering from secondary school must have met the general University entrance requirements and have completed Principles of Mathematics 12 or Pre-Calculus 12 and one of Biology 12, Chemistry 12, or Physics 12, as well as Chemistry 11 and one of Biology 11 or Physics 11.

Applicants who apply to enter following completion of at least 24 credits of work at UBC or its equivalent at another post-secondary institution must have attained an overall average of at least 60% in all credits attempted. In the case of transfer students, consideration will be given to individual program of study in determining the transfer credit that may be applied to the Bachelor of Urban Forestry program. Graduates of a one-or two-year diploma program in forestry or urban forestry may be considered for course exemptions that may be applied towards the degree. Such students must have achieved an overall average of at least 65% in their diploma program, plus have the entrance requirements listed in the paragraph above.

Meeting the minimum academic requirements does not guarantee admission in the event that the number of applicants exceeds the number of available spaces.
