Post-Secondary Courses that Count Toward BC or Yukon Secondary School Graduation

Please note that this section of the UBC Calendar has been updated with information specific to undergraduate admissions in 2019. For information regarding undergraduate admissions in 2018, please see the archived version of the 2017/18 Academic Calendar.

The UBC Okanagan campus recognizes certain post-secondary courses, completed as part of the high school graduation requirements, for admission and for transfer credit.

For the purpose of admission, all post-secondary courses completed toward high school graduation must satisfy the requirements of the program of study to which an applicant is admitted. These courses must be transferable to the Okanagan campus in accordance with agreed-upon equivalencies published in the BC Transfer Guide. Successfully completed post-secondary courses are considered electives and will not be used in place of required Grade 12 courses.

The admission average will be calculated on all academic Grade 11 and Grade 12 coursework. Applicants must arrange to have an official transcript sent directly from their post-secondary institution to Undergraduate Admissions.

Courses successfully completed at recognized colleges and universities in BC and the Yukon are granted transfer credit in accordance with agreed-upon equivalencies published in the BC Transfer Guide.

1With the exception of Canadian Aboriginal language post-secondary courses. Contact Undergraduate Admissions for more information.
