What defines "part-time term"

Recommended Posts

Not sure if I need to fill out the additional information box that says "If applicable, please explain why: A) Your education has not been continuous B ) Your college or university education includes one or more part-time terms C) You are not currently attending college or university."

I took 30+ credits in first and second year but only 27 credits in third year. Would that year count as a "part-time term" that I need to explain in this box? UBC admissions say they consider full time terms to be 5 courses/term or 30 credits/year. In third year, I did take 5 courses in first term and 6 courses in second term but they added up to only 27 credits.

You could make a note if you feel it’s necessary, or have a reason you want to share. But it’s probably fine if you don’t. That box is really more for explaining gaps or more significant part-time terms, and you don’t really fall into that category.
