UBC and Online Courses
December 16, 2016
Dear Grade 12s:
Just for clarification about when online courses need to be completed as per below.
For UBC, yes, the deadline on the website to complete online courses which will be used for admission purposes only, must be completed by February 1 as written on the UBC website. However, it does take time for the Distance Learning Schools to mark and prepare your marks and so just be mindful and perhaps check with your Distance Learning provider to verify when you should be done in order to have the marks submitted on time by February 1.
See below from UBC:
Policy on summer school, night school, online courses & correspondence courses If a student plans to take Distributed Learning courses (e.g., online courses, distance learning, or courses at another school) to meet UBC requirements, they must list these in the Academic Profile section of the UBC application. USED TO CALCULATE A COMPETITIVE ADMISSION AVERAGE Courses must complete by February 1; and The Distributed Learning school must submit the final grade in time for UBC to evaluate the students application
