Step Three: You will be redirected to EducationPlanner BC. Once redirected, either:

  • Sign Up for EducationPlanner BC or
  • Log In if you already have an account


Step Four: Fill out all prompted questions under 'Update Profile' section. If this is your first time creating a profile, you will be prompted to update your personal information under 'Update Profile.' Do your absolute best to answer as accurately and thoroughly as possible!  

Step Five: When prompted to 'Start Applying to an Institution,' select UNBC. That IS the institution you want to apply to, right? Good. Click that.

Step Six: Complete your application. Fill out any additional details to the questions asked in this section. Questions about your academic interests, academic history and more! Remember, you can browse our programs here: www.unbc.ca/programs

HOT TIP - If you're in high school, enter your self-declared grades. This is an estimate grade percentage you think you'll get in each of your courses. By entering self-declared grades, you can receive provisional admission to your program! Ensure you are entering the correct courses based on your program of interest. Note that your self-declared grades will be used for awards consideration, so be as accurate as you can!
