Transfer in British Columbia: What Does the Research Tell Us? Research Results
Cowin, Bob
British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer
Findings from the British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer (BCCAT) sponsored research describing the British Columbia (BC) transfer system over the past decade are summarized. The overall assessment is that the transfer system has performed well: many students have transferred, they have done so with relative ease, and they have achieved bachelor's degrees with much the same success as students who enrolled in university directly from secondary school. With increased diversity of the post-secondary system and growing numbers of degree options and transfer destinations, many factors, including location, affordability, maturity, mobility, and competitiveness of admission requirements may influence an individual's choice of post-secondary institution. BCCAT research indicates that beginning university-level studies at a college or at a university are both viable routes to a degree. (Contains 2 figures.)
