Post-secondary Courses that Count Toward BC or Yukon High School Graduation

UBC 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, and must be transferable to UBC 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 provincially examinable Grade 12 courses.

The admission average will be calculated on English 12 and three additional approved examinable Grade 12 courses or approved post-secondary course(s). Applicants must arrange to have an official transcript sent directly from their post-secondary institution to UBC Undergraduate Admissions.

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