I think its a professional program. Correct me if I am wrong

Check out this link, in the blue box under "what is available" medicine is classified as a professional program.

https://studentaidbc.ca/repay/repayment-help/bc-completion-grant

At UBC, our student financial support person always instructs us to put bachelor’s degree. That’s what I put this year and in previous years, and I’ve already had this year’s application approved.

edit: the exception is if you’re doing an MD PhD, in which case I believe you’d put Doctorate.

I accidentally submitted my application and put professional instead of bachelor :(

Would that mean that I wouldnt get the grant?

Would I be able to submit a reassessment form to change it to bachelors, or even reapply next year as a bachelor? Kinda stressed out about this

Don't be stressed out. Very simple: submit the appendix 7 from https://studentaidbc.ca/sites/all/files/form-library/appendix_7.pdf

You only need to change question #25, and I think you should be fine. Call them if you have any additional concern.

Do you think they would really change it though from Professional to Bachelor? I'm thinking that most people select Bachelor because it's technically correct and they get extra benefits or whatnot from doing it, but StudentAidBC I'm worried would go "well technically according to our system, medicine is considered a professional program so why would we change it"

Alberta also had to submit an Appendix 3 for me because the program wasn't listed when I applied, and they also listed my program as professional
