The "Admissions" Side of BCCAT: An Update. Special Report
British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer
To spearhead increased emphasis on admissions, the British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer (BCCAT) formed an Admissions Committee in Fall 2003. The committee recognized the importance of institutional autonomy in determining admissions policies and processes at each institution. Following initiation of the Student Transitions Project (STP) in Spring 2005, the Admissions Committee found that much of its planned work could be best accomplished under the STP. The past four years have seen significant development of BCCAT's admissions agenda under the auspices of its Admissions Committee and in partnership with the STP. Significant gains have been made in providing systematic access to data about student enrollment and mobility; institutions have been engaged in policy discussions; and students have been provided with current, reliable information on post-secondary programs. BCCAT plans to continue supporting research on student mobility and applicant flows. Research is intended to assist institutions with enrollment planning, in periods of both increasing and declining student demand, as institutions become increasingly reliant on established enrollment planning practices to attract and retain students. The Council will also explore further work in the area of admissions apart from student mobility research.
