British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer, Vancouver.
The mandate of the British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer (BCCAT) is to support and facilitate effective articulation, transfer, and admission arrangements for students wishing to move between the province's colleges, institutes, university colleges, and universities. The Council was established by the Minister of Advanced Education and Job Training in 1989. During fiscal year 2002-2003, the Council completed numerous research projects that were designed to assess transfer system effectiveness and issues within postsecondary admissions policy. This paper offers a brief synopsis of findings from the projects, as well as URL addresses for complete reports posted on the Internet. Some of the highlights from the Analysis of Applications, Admissions, and Registrations of B.C. College Transfer Applicants to B.C.
