Full-Time Classification

The following applies to full-time classification:

  • A full-time student is one who pays full-time tuition fees (schedule A of the tuition fee schedule). See the fees section of the UBC Calendar for details.
  • Graduate programs may articulate specific limitations regarding on-campus paid employment as consistent with participation in full-time study. Students holding Teaching Assistantships must adhere to TA contract rules regarding hours of employment.
  • Students who pay tuition fees according to Schedule A are not permitted to switch to Schedule B after the initial payment of the tuition fees in the first term of the program.
  • Doctoral students must be full-time students.
