I am curious as to what this statement means: "Performance courses are counted towards the required minimum 90 credits but the grades earned in such courses are not usually counted in computing the academic average."

1)Does "performance courses" refer to jazz/concert band/choir courses?

2)Does it also refer to music history courses to? or are they counted as towards your cGPA?

Thanks!

1) Yes, among others.

2) No, at least if you're referring to the kind of music history courses I'm familiar with, which involve no performance.

I don't think this refers to performance-based courses that are graded. It was my understanding this referred to performance-based courses that are "pass/fail." (i.e. not performance as in "music performance")

Thanks for the reply! However, if it is referring to pass/fail courses are they be graded in the first place? It says "grades earned in such courses"...

Good point - and full disclosure - I never contacted UBC to clarify this, so you may want to do so yourself.  But as a performance major myself, I find it hard to believe they wouldn't consider any of the undergraduate courses/grades in my degree program. If that's the case... brutal (I highly doubt it though).

    • Not all courses that I took that could transfer were on the transfer credit list especially upper lvl courses. (Didn’t transfer but they counted for my biologist in training credits) I took a 300 lvl intro to immunology, imin 371 at u of a.
    • Will you be accepting or Windsor? 😊
    • sorry and i realized one more thing- a lot of my courses (fairly content heavy) dont show up on the alberta transfer credit search tool, has that happened to anyone and their course still got transferred? thanks
    • Yup, those Harbourview Condominiums, they seem nice in pics I'm hoping they are in person too lol. Thank you so much for the quick reply and advice, it's very helpful!
    • Hey, are you talking about that complex (might be a duplex not sure) that's right past the bridge? People over-exaggerate the un-safe environment of that side of the bridge. When people say they it's sketchy, they're always referring to like Indian road and Detroit street, which are only 'sketchy' because some houses are boarded up. The complex you're looking at is like a 10 minute walk from that area, and even that area isn't honestly that bad. My opinion is totally objective btw, I've been in Windsor for 22 years and I live in more of a 'suburb' on the opposite side of the city. My advice is that when you go, if you feel like what you see at first sight is safe, then you'll be fine. What you see is exactly what you get, and it is the better part of that neighbourhood.
