To be admitted to UBC, applicants from a collège d'enseignement général et professionel (CEGEP) must have at least one full year of study in a pre-university diploma program. This year must consist of twelve appropriate courses for admission, including either two courses in ENGL (603) or two courses in FREN (601) plus any prerequisite courses required for the selected degree program.
Admission is based on all academic courses completed in the pre-university diploma program. An admission average of at least 60% is required. Many programs have more qualified applicants than spaces and a higher admission average may be required.
The côte de rendement au collégial (R-Score) may be used as a supplement for admission. Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit their R-Score.
Transfer credit for up to one full year of study may be applied toward a UBC degree for students who have completed the pre-university diploma program and been issued a diplôme d'études collégiales (DEC). Admitted applicants who do not have a DEC will be considered for transfer credit on a case-by-case basis.
