The Faculty will accept applications from students with varying educational preparation:
- directly from secondary school graduation, or
- following completion of at least 24 credits at UBC or its equivalent at another post-secondary institution.
Students entering from secondary school must have met the general University entrance requirements (see Admissions) and have completed Principles of Mathematics 12 or Pre-Calculus 12 and one of Biology 12, Chemistry 12, or Physics 12, as well as Chemistry 11 and one of Biology 11 and Physics 11.
Students who enter following completion of at least 24 credits of work at UBC or its equivalent at another post-secondary institution, must have attained an overall average of at least 60% in all credits attempted. In the case of transfer students, consideration will be given to individual cases of study in determining the transfer credit that may be applied to the natural resources conservation program. Graduates of a one-or two- year diploma program in a related discipline may be considered for course exemptions that may be applied towards the degree. Such students must have achieved an overall average of at least 65% in their diploma program, plus have the entrance requirements listed above.
Students may also apply for admission to Year 3 of the program under the terms of approved affiliation agreements between UBC and other academic institutions. Students who have met the minimum academic requirements for admission to Year 3 of the program under such agreements will be eligible for block transfer of credits upon admission.
