BC College Transfer Credit Evaluation: An Analysis of Students Entering the University of Victoria, Winter 1998/99 Session.
Victoria Univ. (British Columbia).
This report documents the results of the transcript evaluation process for British Columbia (BC) college transfer students who applied to the University of Victoria (UVic) for the winter 1998/99 session. It examines the extent to which BC college credits were transferable/transferred to UVic and the reasons why they were sometimes not transferable/transferred. Key findings of the analysis are presented. Students attempted an average of 51.18 credits at the BC college(s) they attended. BC college transfer students applied to UVic with 48.76 potentially transferable credits on average. Fewer than 5% of all attempted BC college credits were ineligible for transfer to the University of Victoria. About 11% of potentially transferable credits were not granted transfer to UVic. The primary reasons for this lack of credit transfer were that the courses were not articulated at UVic, the courses were transferred but at a reduced credit value, and an equivalent or duplicate course had already been granted transfer. About three-fourths of the credits that were successfully transferred mapped to specific UVic courses; one-fourth were granted unassigned transfer credit. The credit transfer patterns described above varied somewhat by BC college and by UVic faculty of admission. (VWC)
