IMPORTANT INFORMATION- Application procedures have recently changed from previous years. All Year 1 applicants must now apply through UBC Faculty of Science.
The majority of students apply for admission to the BSc Psychology Major at the end of Year 1. For Year 1 UBC students who are entering Year 2 and interested in applying, UBC Faculty of Science accepts all such applicants for here: http://www.science.ubc.ca/students/degree/apply
Please read this information carefully before completing your application.
ONLY online application forms will be accepted. This applies to current UBC students and transferring students.
Applications will be considered once a year.
Students coming in as transfer students must submit copies of current transcripts from all other postsecondary institutions to the UBC Department of Psychology Attention: Dr. Boris Gorzalka by Friday, June 21st 2013.
If you are a UBC student applying for this program, your application will not be processed until you have successfully transferred to the Faculty of Science.
If you missed the Year 1 application deadline to apply for the BSc Psychology Major, the Department of Psychology grants approval to a limited number of undergraduate students ending Year 2. Admission continues exclusively through Dr. Gorzalka at the Department of Psychology at UBC specifically for all second year undergraduates who will be entering third year academic status. Please note that very few (approximately 10), students are admitted to the BSc Psychology Major at the end of Year 2.
Because we accept a total of 50 students each year of which 40 are first year students entering second year and 10 are second year students entering third year, no spaces are available for students currently in third or fourth year.
Notification regarding admission will be communicated by email. Please check your UBC email account regularly or configure the settings in your UBC email account to have all emails forwarded to another email address that you use more regularly. All current UBC students can register online for a Campus-Wide Login/NetInfo email account at http://www.it.ubc.ca/accounts/interchange/.
Admission and continuation are based on academic performance.
