UBC senate approves early admissions process in wake of teachers' strike

March 15, 2012

Given the possibility that some BC students might not have traditional spring report cards in light of the province's teachers' strike, UBC's Vancouver campus senate approved Wednesday a proposal to allow the institution to consider final confirmed grades to date, including final Grade 11 and completed Grade 12 courses. Adopting this measure will allow UBC to make admissions offers to BC students by mid-April -- the same timeframe as in previous years. Grade 12 marks will be available from the education ministry in May, and, as has been the case in prior years, additional offers will be made at that time. The Okanagan campus senate approved this measure on February 29. UBC News Release
