Further Information:

Under the terms of the Western Deans’ Agreement, graduate students of the member institutions may take courses at another member institution without having to pay the host university’s tuition fees.

Wherever possible, these fees will also be waived. Students must have the Western Deans’ Agreement Authorization form approved by the relevant Graduate Program Advisor and the College of Graduate Studies at least two weeks prior to the commencement of the course(s) requested. The fee waiver is not available retroactively.

In order to receive transfer credit, if applicable, the student must provide a copy of their transcript from the host institution. Please have the transcript forwarded to the College of Graduate Studies at UBC’s Okanagan campus.
