British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer
A major challenge is to ensure continuing and efficient student mobility and transferability of credits across this broad array of institutions with changing mandates. This paper describes the ideal post-secondary system in 2020 by addressing five factors critical to its evolution: (1) student mobility and transition; (2) transferability of credit; (3) applicability of credit; (4) program quality and institutional accreditation; and (5) availability of consistent and reliable data. In order to accomplish the work in the five critical areas and move towards the kind of ideal education system described in the paper, an intentional rather than "laissez-faire" approach must be taken by both government and post-secondary institutions. Such an intentional approach, with measurable goals and clear timelines for achieving them, will build on our existing successes; provide evidence of quality assurance to facilitate degree recognition nationally and internationally; improve the capacity of institutions and the system to plan more effectively; and result in a more flexible, responsive, and effective system of student mobility and transfer in 2020. [This paper has been written to provide advice from the British Columbia (BC) Council to the Campus 2020 consultation in areas that relate to British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer's (BCCAT's) mandate.]
