PSI Entrance Requirements
WHAT ARE THE ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS FOR POST SECONDARY INSTITUTIONS?
Every post secondary institution (PSI) creates its own entrance requirements.  A PSI includes any schooling after secondary school – colleges, technical schools, universities, etc.  What a student needs for admission at UBC Okanagan is not the same as at UBC Vancouver, Okanagan College or the University of Alberta.  Typically there are entrance requirements for the school in general and then there are specific entrance requirements for each faculty or program and students must meet all of them to apply.  Most PSI’s look only at grade 12 marks for entrance, but that is not consistently the case.  Students need to research the entrance requirements for any PSI that they might be interested in attending after high school and then ensure that they are taking the appropriate courses.
 
UBC/UBCO are now looking at grade 11 marks for entrance if the approved grade 12 course has not been completed by February of the student's graduation year.  For details, see tab marked "UBC/UBCO Admissions Changes"
