Procedure for Canadian Students

Applications for UBC Okanagan are due February 28 and must be submitted online. We strongly encourage you to apply early and submit the necessary documents as soon as they are available. UBC will begin considering you for admission as early as the necessary documents arrive. Students applying to UBC may select both a first choice and a second choice program for consideration.

If you are currently attending a British Columbia high school and apply to UBC Okanagan before the February 28 application deadline, you will be asked to self report your grades in March/April. If you do this, you will receive an immediate online admission decision.

If you are currently attending an Ontario secondary school and are applying to other universities via the Ontario University Application Centre, you will receive an OUAC number. Please include this on your UBC application form. This will authorize electronic release of your grades to UBC so there is no need to mail in paper transcripts. If you do not have an OUAC number, please ask your school to send your paper transcripts to UBC.

If you are currently attending a secondary school in another Canadian province or territory, have your school send in your transcripts in March or April. For details on admission criteria, visit ‘Canadian High School Admission Requirements’ on the Web site.
