Students who transfer to the UBC Okanagan campus with newly hired faculty members may either:
- transfer to the UBC Okanagan campus in order to complete a UBC degree. In this case, students should apply for admission in the usual way by submitting the application form, application fee, transcripts, reference letters, and any other supporting documentation required by the graduate program. It is expected that fees will be assessed as if the years spent by the student at the previous university were paid at the UBC Okanagan campus for that period. The maximum time to complete the program will be calculated on the same basis. Eligibility for awards will be as if the years spent by the student at the previous university were spent at the UBC Okanagan campus; or
- apply to become a visiting student in order to complete their work and graduate from their original university. Students may spend up to one year at the UBC Okanagan campus as a visiting graduate student. Credits completed while a visiting student may not subsequently be credited toward completion of a degree at UBC.
