Survey of Advising and Admissions Personnel on Administrative Systems Related to Transfer: Results.
British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer, Vancouver.
This report presents the results of the Survey of Advising and Admissions Personnel on Administrative Systems Related to Transfer questionnaire as prepared by the British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer's Task Force on Standards and Processes. Responses from 98 individual counselors were received. By far the most common type of transfers cited by advisors was from college university-transfer programs to university degree programs, followed by college career/technical programs to degree programs. The single most valued document in the advising process is the print Transfer Guide. Access to the online Transfer Guide was rated as the most "potentially" valuable resource. Most advisors feel that students do not have a good understanding of the transfer system. Based on their experience, respondents estimated that: 69% of students experienced no difficulties with the transfer process; 27% of students experienced minor difficulties with the transfer process; 9% of students experienced major difficulties with the transfer process. Of the 94 respondents who replied to the question: "Based on your experience, which of the statements below best describes the transfer process in BC [British Columbia] as you see it," 90% rated the system as "Good" (55%) or "Pretty Good" (35%). Nobody chose the option "This system does not work well." (VWC)
