Next steps for your UBC admission
Successful applicants to the Vantage One programs will be notified by email with their official offer letter.
You can also see the status of your application via UBC's online Student Service Centre.
Once you have received an offer to join UBC Vantage College, you can review the steps below to prepare you for your program. You can also download a PDF copy of the 2024 Registration and Orientation Guide.
1. APPLY FOR STUDENT HOUSING
2. ACCEPT YOUR OFFER
When you receive an offer of acceptance, it means we have reserved a place for you at UBC Vantage College, but we can only hold it for so long. To reserve your spot, you must formally accept your offer and pay your non-refundable $3000 CAD deposit before the date listed on your UBC Offer of Admission letter.
Please note that Vantage One does not permit program changes after you have accepted your offer of admission.
Accepting your offer involves an easy three-step process:
1. Visit the Student Service Centre at students.ubc.ca/ssc
2. Log in and select "Accept My Offer"
3. Follow the steps to complete your payment
Your deposit will be applied to your first-term tuition instalment.
If you do not plan to attend UBC Vantage College, please visit the Student Service Centre and select "Decline My Offer."
3. APPLY FOR A STUDY PERMIT
Obtaining a permit might take several months, so we encourage you to submit your application as soon as you accept your offer.
Read up on our study permits page to learn more about the application process.
4. REGISTER FOR YOUR COURSES
Log into UBC's Student Service Centre and register for a Vantage Standard Timetable (STT). All incoming Vantage students will receive an email with instructions on how to complete the registration process. This email will also include your registration start time and date. Once registration opens, you should register for courses as soon as possible as STT's have limited capacity. Registration for first-year students opens in mid to late June.
