As the recipient of an eligible OUC degree, you can apply to accept a UBC degree and thereby become a full member of the distinguished community of UBC alumni.
Eligible alumni are those holding one or more of the following credentials granted by OUC as the sole granting institution between January 1, 1998 and June 30, 2005:
- Bachelor of Arts;
- Bachelor of Education;
- Bachelor of Fine Arts;
- Bachelor of Science;
- Bachelor of Science in Nursing; and
- Bachelor of Social Work.
In order to finalize the granting of the UBC degree and to receive a parchment, candidates must make application through UBC Enrolment Services. See "How To Apply" below for the link to the application.
UBC graduates now number 226,935 with more than 5,000 of these alumni already residing in the Okanagan area.
Alumni UBC, helps alumni connect with one another through the Alumni Connections e-newsletter, social media and a wide range of relevant events. As valued members of the UBC community, alumni are welcome participants in UBC's commitment to make a positive difference in the world. Through Alumni UBC, you'll learn about the many options available to you to do that. You may also apply to expand your studies as a returning UBC unclassified student.
All UBC alumni are eligible for an ACard which, among other benefits, acts as the equivalent of a UBC community borrower's library card (valued at $120 a year). ACards are free to alumni and, in the Okanagan, can be picked up from the UBC Okanagan campus library with verification of alumni status.
How to apply
We won't presume that you want to be a part of this network without hearing from you first.
- Apply for a UBC degree
- A one-time administrative fee of $100 plus 7% PST will be payable at the time of application, in keeping with UBC graduation practice. This fee allows UBC Enrolment Services to provide you with a parchment and to confirm your new status as a UBC degree holder.
This is not a time-limited offer; your UBC degree will be available to you whenever you choose to apply.
*The Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) and the Bachelor of Computer Information Systems (BCIS) degrees are not eligible programs for degree conversion because when OUC ceased to exist, UBC Okanagan did not assume responsibility for them.
Note: while BBA students are not eligible for degree conferral by UBC, some previously enrolled BBA students are eligible to receive a degree that is co-conferred by UBC and Okanagan College
