You are reading the 2024/25 Academic Calendar. The 2023/24 version remains in effect until August 31, 2024 and is available here.


Readmission applies to students who have previously attended UBC. For students currently attending UBC who wish to change to a different degree program or campus, please see Change of Degree Program or Change of Campus.

Students in good academic standing who have been away from certain UBC programs for less than one academic year may qualify for academic leave and be automatically eligible to register in the same program without applying for readmission. Please see Academic Leave for more information.

Former UBC students whose automatic eligibility to register has expired must apply for readmission online at the Applicant Service Centre (under Admissions) and pay a non-refundable application fee.

Eligibility for readmission to the same degree program at the same campus will be assessed on the basis of an applicant's performance in the last Winter Session at UBC.

Eligibility for readmission to a different degree program (at the same or a different campus) will be assessed on the basis of an applicant's ability to meet the minimum competitive admission average1 and any specific course requirements of the program to which the student is applying. Applicants must be in good academic standing.

Students who were required to withdraw may be required to submit a letter of appeal with their application for readmission. Please see an academic advisor or a program advisor for any additional program-specific readmission requirements.

All applicants for readmission who have attended other post-secondary institutions since leaving UBC must submit transcripts of that study for assessment.

Students readmitted to a different program may transfer a maximum of 60 credits applicable to the new degree program.

Applicants who have completed a bachelor's degree at UBC and who are readmitted to a second bachelor's degree program must meet the program requirements specific for degree holders. Please see an academic advisor or a program advisor for more information.

1Academic evaluations are based on the average of the most recent courses attempted, including any failed and repeated courses, to a maximum of 30 credits unless otherwise prescribed by the program to which a student is applying. In cases where counting back 30 credits lands in the middle of an academic term, the average of that term will be used for the remaining required credits to reach the total of 30.
