2005 Admissions and Transfer Experiences of Students Continuing Their Studies in British Columbia. Research Results
British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer
This newsletter summarizes the admissions and transfer experiences of approximately 7,000 students surveyed in the spring of 2005 who left a British Columbia (BC) college, university college, or institute program to continue their studies in another program at the same institution or at another BC public institution. In some instances, these findings are compared with responses to similar surveys conducted in 2000 and 2002. It is concluded that, overall, transfer experiences were positive. Respondents said they were able to transfer into their institutions of choice for further studies and enrol in their preferred programs and courses; most received the course transfer credits they expected. Institutions are encouraged to: (1) develop and maintain up-to-date online information for transfer planning; (2) clarify with students that even though courses transfer, they may not be applicable to a specific program; and (3) read the full study upon which this report is based to be informed about the specific issues that may apply to them. (Contains 2 footnotes.)
