Taking a break from UBC
Can I take time off from UBC?
If you are a Human Kinetics, Management, Science, Arts, or Fine Arts student in good academic standing, you can take an academic leave for one academic year and still have automatic eligibility to register in the following Winter Session.
For example, if you left UBC in good standing after finishing Winter Session 2021, you will automatically be able to register in the following:
- Summer Session 2022 (starting in April 2022)
- Winter Session 2022 (starting in September 2022)
- Summer Session 2023 (starting in April 2023)
- Winter Session 2023 (starting in September 2023)
If you plan on taking more than one academic year off you will be required to apply for readmission. The application is found on the Student Service Centre (SSC) and is typically due in January. Eligibility for readmission will be assessed using the grades from your last Winter Session at UBC Okanagan.
