2003-2004 Annual Report to the Ministry of Advanced Education
British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer
On March 25, 2003, the British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer (BCCAT) received a Management Letter that outlined the expectations of the Ministry of Advanced Education for the B.C. Council on Admissions and Transfer in 2003-2004. In this Annual Report, BCCAT details how the Council has addressed and met those expectations and provides information on other projects and initiatives that have been undertaken to achieve that mandate. An expansion of activities has been initiated, normally focused on improving transfer credit arrangements between public post-secondary institutions, to include facilitating and coordinating articulation between public and private institutions. The council has also started, as requested in the Management Letter, "to explore issues pertaining to admission policies, practices, and capacity, for direct entry students and transfer students entering into and moving between institutions." This report outlines the substantial progress achieved in both of these arenas. Although not part of the initial work plan, BCCAT assumed managerial responsibility for Opening Doors in mid-year and has prepared a detailed plan to substantively improve and expand this information service in 2004-05, within the same budget allocation as was provided in 2003-04. Finally, due to unanticipated staffing difficulties, emergency arrangements had to be implemented to coordinate and maintain the Online Transfer Guide through 2003-04 and to implement a plan to ensure a greater level of security and continuity in how this essential information service will be maintained in the future.
