British Columbia/Alberta Transfer System Protocol
British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer
The purpose of this agreement is to provide assurance to students that they will receive transfer credit for courses or programs they have successfully completed where the content/outcomes are demonstrably equivalent to those offered at the institution to which they transfer. This protocol is undertaken by the British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer (BCCAT) and the Alberta Council on Admissions and Transfer (ACAT) in lieu of formal articulation because it is unlikely that the volume of students transferring to institutions in the other province will justify the resources necessary to undertake a formal articulation on a course-to-course basis. Additionally, the mandates of BCCAT and ACAT have not traditionally extended to the provision of specific information on out-of-province transfer agreements. However, should the volume of student transfer justify formal articulation, or should institutions be desirous of doing so for particular reasons, this protocol does not preclude formal articulation between institutions across provincial boundaries. (Contains 1 note.) [This document is based on the Pan-Canadian Protocol on the Transferability of University Credits and on BCCAT's suggested template for a Transfer Protocol between institutions in the BC Transfer System. It was approved by the Alberta Council on Admissions and Transfer on January 25, 2007 and the British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer on March 9, 2007.]
