Students are not required to select a program major until they register for their second year. Students planning to apply to second-year admission degree programs are still required to follow the course requirements for the program to which they were originally admitted. Students not meeting the minimum academic standing required for compulsory courses in a given program may be required to withdraw from that program.
UBC permits students to take a limited number of percentage-graded electives as Credit/D/Fail. In the Faculty of Land and Food Systems, students are permitted to opt for Credit/D/Fail for only those courses designated as unrestricted electives. It is the students’ responsibility to be mindful of their degree requirements and possible future implications before selecting this option for a course. Selecting Credit/D/Fail may impact students’ eligibility for awards, scholarships or financial support. In addition, professional programs or graduate schools may not allow pre-requisites to be completed through Credit/D/Fail. Students wishing to complete a course through Credit/D/Fail are strongly encouraged to contact their Program Advisor or LFS Student Services prior to registration.
As per Campus-wide Policies and Regulations, students are not permitted to take courses for academic credit at other post-secondary institutions concurrently with their program in the Faculty without receiving prior consent from the Director, LFS Student Services. The Faculty is not obligated to grant transfer credit for students who do not receive permission in advance of attempting courses elsewhere.
