The School of Kinesiology has implemented a Broad-Based Admission policy that incorporates the use of supplementary criteria in addition to academic performance in the selection of students entering the Bachelor of Kinesiology degree program.
Detailed information on admission requirements for all applicants is available on the School of Kinesiology website (www.kin.educ.ubc.ca/undergraduate).
Admission of students into the Bachelor of Kinesiology program is based on academic performance and other accomplishments, including personal statements, demonstrated leadership skills, active participation in extracurricular activities, work experience, significant awards and achievements, and reference contacts.
Students who are accepted on transfer from other institutions must normally complete all remaining courses toward the Bachelor of Kinesiology at UBC. A maximum of 60 transfer credits will normally be granted. The University will not grant a degree for studies that represent less than the equivalent of two regular Winter Sessions (60 credits).
In general, transfer credit is limited to the initial two years of a degree program. Credit at a more senior level may be possible if prior written permission has been granted by the School's Undergraduate Advising Centre. A student wishing to take courses at another institution and transfer the credit toward a Bachelor of Kinesiology degree must first obtain a Letter of Permission from the School's Undergraduate Advising Centre. It is the student's responsibility to forward an official transcript to Enrolment Services, Admissions.
Students are reminded of the University rule regarding program responsibility. Students are responsible for the completeness and accuracy of their registration as it is related to the regulations of the program of study in which they are enrolled. The following is a summary of the registration procedures for all kinesiology students.
Enrolment may be limited in certain Kinesiology courses when the demand is greater than available resources. See Space in Courses.
