Applying to UNBC​

We’re excited your student has decided to attend UNBC!

Encourage your student to apply for student scholarships or bursaries and watch for upcoming deadlines.


Student Arrival

Welcome to campus! Whether your student is commuting to UNBC from home or moving to campus housing, starting university is a big step in their life.

You can help your student adjust to their new surroundings by keeping yourself in the loop as well.


Attending UNBC

Your student has made it to UNBC and is starting to attend classes and hopefully get involved in some of the many on-campus opportunities such as student clubs, events and more.​

Whether your student needs support in or out of the classroom, UNBC has services to help them succeed. All they have to do is ask!

Looking for a way to show your student that they are on your mind? Get Chartwells or the UNBC Bookstore to create a care package for them!
