The UBC Calendar
The UBC Calendar is our official rulebook. Refer to it for comprehensive information about all of the programs, courses, services, and academic policies of the University. Much of the information is also presented here on the myBCom website. We’ve made every effort to ensure its completeness and accuracy; however, in any instance where this website does not agree with the information in the UBC Calendar, the regulations and policies in the Calendar will prevail. The UBC Sauder School of Business and the University reserve the right to change academic policies at their discretion. Such changes may be implemented without prior notice and may be applied to currently enrolled students.

Knowing about the policies and regulations that apply to you as a UBC student will help you to better plan your studies and make smart decisions toward achieving academic success.
It's up to you to:
- take responsibility for your goals, values and academic decision making. Reach out to a success coach, academic advisor, or career coach if you need help or guidance.
- consult Chapman Learning Commons resource guides to learn what constitutes plagiarism, how to properly cite your work, and what it means to respect copyright.
- attend classes and exams. If you are absent due to circumstances beyond your control, inform us as soon as possible. You may be eligible for an academic concession.
- know when the UBC exam periods are and don’t make travel plans until you have confirmed your exam schedule.
As a UBC student you’ll sometimes feel inundated with information. The University’s central and program offices, instructors, and student organizations all have a need to communicate to students with important information about programs, campus life, resources and enrichment opportunities. Monitor your email regularly and follow campus social media channels to stay informed.
