Transfer Credit Assessment for B.C. College Transfer Students Admitted to the University of British Columbia in the 1997/98 Session.
Reh-Bosch, Susan; Atkins, Lorraine
This report assesses the transfer credit process for British Columbia (BC) college transfer applicants to the University of British Columbia (UBC). Results indicate that students are earning on average 49.7 credits from the BC college attended and are being granted an average of 42.2 credits when transferring to UBC. This translated into 84.9% of credits earned at the college that were granted transfer credits at UBC. In the cases where students were not granted transfer credits based on college credits earned, there were eight explicit reasons why this occurred: college course was not articulated at UBC; college credits were weighted less at UBC; student exceeded maximum number of transfer credits permitted for a specific UBC program; student exceeded maximum number of transfer credits in a specific subject area; equivalent or duplicate courses were completed at the college and credit was granted for only one of those courses at UBC; high school level (or equivalent) course was completed; no credit was granted if college course was taken on its own; and college course was not given credit in a specific UBC program. Appendices 1-5 detail all college courses not articulated at UBC that were completed by students admitted into each of the five undergraduate degree programs of Applied Science, Arts, Commerce, Human Kinetics, and Science.
