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

You are reading the 2022/23 Academic Calendar. The 2021/22 version remains in effect until 31 August 2022 and is available here

Please note that this section of the UBC Calendar has been updated with information specific to undergraduate admissions in 2021. For information regarding undergraduate admissions in 2020, please see the archived version of the 2020/21 Academic Calendar.

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 Guide1. Successfully completed post-secondary courses are considered electives and will not be used in place of required 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 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.

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