Hi Immaculata:

Happy New Year, and welcome back to our monthly UBC updates!

We’d like to remind you that the final application deadline for the 2021/2022 academic year is January 15, 2021. You and your students can review the Okanagan and Vancouver admission requirements, as well as the  application process, online. We will reach out to applicants in late January via email with more information about collecting grades.

After applying to UBC

BC applicants who submit their UBC online application after December 2 must provide UBC with their Personal Education Number (PEN) and order a transcript via StudentTranscripts.gov.bc.ca by January 31. When ordering a transcript, applicants should select “Send my transcript now and allow this post-secondary institution to request transcript updates”, and choose the default date (one year from the date of their order), so that UBC can receive their interim and final grades continuously.

First-round offers of admission for applicants who submitted their UBC online application on or before December 2 will be going out soon and will continue until the end of February.

Happy New Year! I hope you had a relaxing holiday season and the new school term is starting off smoothly. I wanted to share some UVic updates that may be relevant to your students.

Virtual Event Updates for January 2021 (Registration for these events are available on our Events website)

  1. Discover UVic sessions (Jan. 12,18, 27): These general recruitment presentations are oriented toward your undecided grade 12 students still deciding where/whether/how to apply as well as keen grade 11 students doing some planning for next year.
  1. Parent Night (Jan. 14): Keynote speaker, Dr. Lisa Surridge, is Associate Dean Academic for the Faculty of Humanities, and she will provide information to parents/guardians that can help them prepare their students for the transition to post-secondary studies. These sessions have been very popular so far, and I’d encourage parents/guardians to attend.
  1. “I Want to Be in Theatre” Open House (Jan. 16): The open house is designed for students interested in studying Theatre and exploring whether Theatre at UVic is where they want to be (or not to be). This is a fantastic opportunity to check out a live rehearsal, connect with faculty and current students and learn more about the opportunities available in Theatre at UVic.

Admission Updates for January 2021

  • Late applications: The application deadline for all programs is January 31. With the exception of Writing, Music and all programs in the Faculty of Education, late applications will be accepted (with a late application fee) until February 14.
  • Making program changes on a submitted application: Students looking to change the program they have applied to should email their Admission Assistant by March 1. Pro Tip: They should indicate that the email is regarding a program change in the subject line of the email.
  • Self reporting will run February 15 - March 15: Self Reporting 101 information sessions will be held throughout February to help students navigate the self-reporting process. I strongly advise applicants to participate in one of these virtual sessions. Registration will be available on the Events section of our website.

While we’re always happy to answer emails and take calls to answer questions, prospective students can also book a 30-minute virtual appointment with their student recruiter at any time. Students can explore appointment availability and book their time slot here.

With our application deadline approaching on January 31 and self-reporting opening on February 15, this will be a busy time of year with many application related questions. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions that you might have.
