UNBC- University of Northern B.C.
I hope this email finds you and your students doing well, with many of you looking ahead to high school spring break. Today, we are sharing with you the March Newsletter from Student Recruitment at UNBC.
In this newsletter, we cover:
2022/23 Application Deadlines – Extensions
Applications are currently open for Fall 2022 and Winter 2023 on EducationPlannerBC.ca. Some programs have a posted application deadline of March 1 or earlier. Many of these deadlines are extended. For example, Arts, Commerce, Planning, and Science majors are continually accepting applications for Fall 2022 (it’s never too late to apply). Competitive programs such as Engineering or Health Sciences have limited seats but will post if they are accepting late applications past the deadline or are accepting applications to a waitlist.
The reason we post any deadline is so that applicants have time to complete their applications, receive an admissions response, apply for entrance awards before their deadlines, and to have first choice of their schedule when course registration opens.
Our Admissions team maintains an up-to-date reflection of each program’s application acceptance status on our website at unbc.ca/admissions/undergraduate/undergraduate-application-deadlines - we highly recommend bookmarking this page!
Do not hesitate to contact us for clarification at email@example.com.

Assistant Registrar, Student Recruitment and Applicant Relations
Other common questions:
I applied for a program with a supplementary application, when will I hear my decision?
Programs with supplementary applications (Bachelor of Health Science, Dance, Music, Visual Studies) make offers after the supplementary application has been reviewed. For Health Science applicants, we highly recommend that they complete their supplementary application as soon as possible as offers have started for this program and the deadline is March 1. For Fine Arts applicants, most auditions will be held in March.
What is the admitting average for each program?
Admission averages are finalized once the pool of applicants is known after the March 1 application deadline and do change throughout the admission cycle. For students who have not received an offer, we recommend that they consider the estimated competitive admission averages highlighted on our Admission Widget as these are the competitive ranges for our programs.
What is the average needed to maintain to keep an offer of admission?
Applicants who have received an offer of admission with high school courses in program must:
