This section applies to students who are currently attending UBC and who wish to change from the Okanagan campus to the Vancouver campus, or vice versa, with the exception of students in the Bachelor of Applied Science program1.
Current students who wish to change to a different program at the same campus, please see Change of Degree Program.
Students who have previously attended UBC and wish to return, please see Readmission.
To be eligible for a campus change, currently attending UBC students must be In Good Standing. They must also meet the University minimum average of 60% or 2.0 grade point average (calculated on a 4.0-point scale)2. Some programs may require a higher minimum competitive admission average and completion of specific courses.
Students who have been assigned Failed standing and had been required to discontinue or withdraw from their studies are not normally eligible to change campuses, but applications will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Students are encouraged to contact Enrolment Services for more information.
Students who wish to change campuses must complete the Change of Degree Program/Campus form on the Student Service Centre (under 'Registration') and pay a non-refundable application fee.
Normally students may transfer a maximum of 60 applicable credits unless registered in a special inter-campus program.
1Bachelor of Applied Science students who wish to change campuses should contact the School of Engineering Student Development Office on the Okanagan campus.
2Academic evaluations are based on the average of the most recent courses attempted, including any failed or 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 credits required to reach the total of 30. Please see youbc Okanagan for more information.
