**Before you submit the application, please ensure that you have met the academic standing and course requirements as stated within the UBC Calendar.**
Applicants for the Minor in Commerce must have successfully completed one of MATH 100, 102, 104, 110, 120, 180, or 184 and one of ECON 101, LFS 101, ECON 310, and one of ECON 102, ECON 311. Meeting the minimum academic standing and course requirements alone will not guarantee you will be accepted in to the minor. Please give careful thought to your academic plan as part of your application, as it is important to demonstrate you have thought your proposal through before submitting.
Please submit the completed form no later than March 31. Applicants will be notified of their admission decision from LFS Student Services by email in early June.

Of the upper-level credits required for the minor, a maximum of 6 credits can be double-counted towards the required courses or restricted elective requirements of the major. The remaining upper-level credits may be completed within unrestricted elective requirements (if possible with careful planning). There are no restrictions on double-counting lower-level prerequisites or requirements, if they exist for the minor program.
