Official transcripts from every post-secondary institution that you attended are required. After you apply for admission, the Undergraduate Admissions Office will review your application for completion and determine which documents are needed. You will then receive an acknowledgement email with your next steps. If you are currently studying at a post-secondary institution, it’s best to wait until your Fall term grades are available before you order your transcript. Our evaluators need to see the grades from your most recently completed coursework (up to December 2017).

You can also find this list on your Student Service Centre (SSC) in the “Application Status” page; this is also the best place to find out if your transcripts have been received. It will take time for postage and processing, so please be patient!

All transcripts must be sent directly from your institution to the Undergraduate Admissions Office, and not the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences. Transcripts can be addressed to:

The University of British Columbia
Undergraduate Admissions Office
2016-1874 East Mall
Vancouver, BC, Canada V6T 1Z1

If you attended, or are attending, UBC or UBCO, you do not have to order your UBC transcripts.
