Applicants are welcome to upload unofficial transcripts from ALL post-secondary institutions attended but you need to make arrangements to have the official transcript sent to UNBC by the application deadline. All official transcripts are required, no matter how long it has been since you attended and even if the coursework was not completed. Failure to do so may result in your admission being denied, an admission offer rescinded, or removal from a graduate program. Official transcripts should be sent to: UNBC - Office of the Registrar, Attn: Graduate Studies Unit, 3333 University Way, Prince George, BC V2N 4Z9 CANADA
International applicants are required to also upload proof of Bachelor's degree (and/or Master's degree if applicable).
Applicants will need to supply the email addresses and first and last name information for the three people to be used as referees for your graduate application. Ideally, you should obtain the referee's institutional/organizational email address for this purpose. Depending on the graduate program you are applying to, you may need to supply academic and/or professional references.
All supporting documents should be uploaded or entered via the online application. For details on required documents, please refer to the application checklists.
Official transcripts and official English language proficiency test scores need to be sent directly from the issuing institution to UNBC, but copies of other documents such as the Statement of Academic Interests, Sample of Written Academic Work (if applicable), and unofficial transcripts can be uploaded and do not need to be sent by mail if uploaded.
