Navigate your degree and courses
December 19, 2021
Dear UBC Science (BSc and BCS students),
Students who have been approved by Science Advising for “deferred standing” status in a course are expected to sit at the first scheduled time for a make-up exam.
Courses are listed alphabetically by course code below with any information that we have about the scheduled make-up exams.
After reviewing the information, if you have questions:
October is upon us and with the passing of the Thanksgiving long weekend, there are a few things to keep in mind as you move forward with your Science courses.
October 8, 2021 Update
For many online Science courses in 2021 winter session, students are expected to complete major assessments (e.g. midterm, final exam/assignment) in-person. There may be circumstances under which a student is prevented from coming to campus to complete these assessments. In this case, you must apply for an alternate format exam. Students in the local Vancouver area will generally not be eligible for this academic concession for reasons related to distance to campus.
If you're an international BSc or BCS student who has registered for courses in the 2021 Winter Session, you will receive a request on August 7 to complete a survey to help us plan for your return to Canada and to in-person studies. This survey has gone out to most undergraduate international students at UBC and you can see an example of the email below.
It is essential that you complete the survey so that we can get a sense of your plans for arrival/return and what challenges you’re anticipating that you may encounter.
UBC is currently planning a return to on-campus activity for 2021/22 Winter Session. Courses will be primarily delivered in-person, with the expectation that students will be on campus in September. A limited selection of courses are available with online delivery.

Dear UBC Science (BSc and BCS) students,
We know that you have questions about what to expect for your studies this fall and we are writing to share an update to help guide your plans.
During your degree, you might find that the specialization you are in is no longer the one that you want. There are a variety of reasons why you might explore switching your specialization – maybe you’ve changed your mind about the scientific discipline you want to study or you didn’t get into your first choice when you applied in second year. Whatever the reason, switching specializations takes some research and planning.
If you are trying to register in a course that you attempted in term 1 (and did not pass or have a W standing), you may not be able to register yourself into the same course in term 2. Here's what you need to do:
