Your pre-university checklist
Before school starts, there are some things you’ll need to do so that you’re ready for your studies.
Navigating academics online
With most classes being offered online this fall, university learning will be different from previous years. UBC has numerous resources to help you flourish in this new learning environment.
- Get connected with the tools and strategies you need to succeed
- Get started with online classes
- Explore academic resources, support, and accommodations
- Contact an academic advisor
- Familiarize yourself with important dates and deadlines
- Explore UBCO’s library resources
- Get support with technical issues
Learn how to pay your tuition, access options for funding your education, and more.
Enriching your student life
Courses are online this term, but that doesn’t mean you have to put your student experience on hold.
All new-to-UBCO students (including transfer and mature students) are automatically paired with an upper-year student in the same academic program. Peer mentors are seasoned campus experts who can answer your non-academic questions.
Watch UBC Okanagan’s events calendar for upcoming online offerings — speakers, workshops and more.
Staying connected to campus—virtually
Familiarize yourself with campus culture, spaces, amenities, and attractions, so you’ll be ready to explore them in person when it’s safe to do so.
