Authenticity of Documents

  

UBC Calendar: http://www.calendar.ubc.ca/vancouver/index.cfm?tree=12,204,340,613

From the Calendar:

"Every person who applies to the UBC Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies must confirm that all statements made and all documentation submitted in support of his or her application are authentic, true, complete, and valid. The applicant is responsible for the authenticity of documentation submitted in support of his or her application for admission to UBC.

"The Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies reserves the right to return transcripts, degree certificates and/or reference letters to the original issuer for verification. The Dean of the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies reserves the right to rescind a letter of admission or to require that a student withdraw if it is determined that the student has submitted falsified documents in support of his or her application for admission."

More information

Applicants who have submitted falsified records to UBC or to another university will not be considered for admission at any time in the future. UBC shares the names of applicants who submit falsified documentation with the Association of Universities and College of Canada (AUCC), and Canada Immigration (the latter in the event the student requires/required a Study Permit to enter Canada).

If a graduate program suspects that a document submitted in support of an application has been altered or falsified in any way, the applicant's file should be sent immediately to the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies to be checked for authenticity.
