As we near the end of Period 1 you may be thinking about requesting to overload a module for your Period 2 schedule.
You will find the Overloading Policy attached, and also on your Vista site. The online request to overload form can be found here: https://secure.sauder.ubc.ca/mba/overload_request/overload_request.cfm
You will need to have an 80% average in your Post-Core modules in order to qualify to overload – once you have sent your request in we need to wait until your grades from P1 are in prior to confirming any overloads.
Please also note that overloading of modules prior to going on exchange does not exempt students from taking a full course load at their exchange partner school. Our exchange agreements are predicated upon students participating and contributing fully at their exchange partner school, and this includes taking a full course load.
If you are interested in auditing a module in P2, rather than overloading, please note that all auditing of MBA modules is unofficial and there will be no record on your transcript. You will need to approach the instructor directly to receive permission to audit their module, and the instructor will let you know what level of participation will be required of you. Please note that some instructors may not allow auditing due to space restrictions or how the material is taught. Auditors do not have access to the course Vista sites.
