Applying for Transit

Applying for Transit to UBC for Year 3

Upon successful completion of all required courses at UNBC, students will be allowed to transit to UBC for Year 3. Transit-to-UBC application forms will be emailed to year 2 students in the Fall. Under no circumstances can a student transit if missing more than 6 credits; missing course(s) cannot be in ENGR, MATH, or STAT courses, or required as pre-requisites. Students must have a minimum UNBC cumulative GPA of 2.0 before they can transit to UBC.

Students transiting to UBC and interested in living on campus must apply to UBC Housing as early as possible. It’s important that students respond promptly to emails. Students will have a week to accept the housing placement and pay their deposit. If students are late to apply, they will be in jeopardy of losing their spot.


Applying for Transit to UNBC for Year 5

Students who have completed all required courses at UBC are eligible for transit to UNBC for Year 5 to complete their capstone project. Transit-to-UNBC application forms will be emailed to year 4 students in the Winter. The form will indicate where students can apply for UNBC Housing, should they be interested. Students who have not completed all course requirements and/or do not meet the minimum required average (see “progression”) may not be able to transit to UNBC.



Progression between years and institutions requires good academic standing in the program at the most recent institution of residence (UNBC or UBC). At UNBC this means a GPA of at least 2.0 or 63%. At UBC this means that an average of 55%, and passing grades in at least 65% of the credits taken.
