These registration statistics and reports represent the students' time at UBC. These times include registration (for graduate students this includes course work and thesis research), on leave periods, extensions, and withdrawals. A separate area deals with Academic Progress.
Data are grouped into registration periods that span September through the following August. This includes the Winter session (September - April) and the following Summer session (May - August). This cycle represents the university's academic year which also runs from September through August.
We currently have data from 1991 onwards. Data are grouped into snapshot periods: November (Winter session), March (Winter session) and August (Summer Session).
