Recalibrating the BC Transfer System: Approved Final Report
British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer
In November 2005, the BC Council on Admissions and Transfer launched a consultation entitled Recalibrating the BC Transfer System with the institutional members of the BC Transfer System and other interested parties. This consultation was motivated in large part by significant changes in the BC post-secondary system over the last decade, and concern that these changes had not resulted in concomitant adjustments in the structure of the BC Transfer System or the organization of the BC Transfer Guide. The objectives of the consultation were to understand the scope and nature of the concerns which had been expressed at various meetings and by various institutions, and to seek the best advice we could from the system about what changes or adaptations are needed. This final report and the recommendations it contains were approved in principle by Council at their October 6, 2006 meeting, and will lay the groundwork for future efforts toward recalibrating the BC Transfer System. This report contains a summary of the recommendations which are outlined at the end of each issue-related section: (1) Organization of the BC Transfer Guide-- Sending/Receiving Designation; (2) Regional Transfer Guides and Transfer Protocols; (3) Conversion of Case-by-Case Transfer to Articulation-Based Transfer; (4) Recording of Public/Private Articulation Agreements; (5) Recording Out-of-Province Articulation Agreements; (6) Developing More Program Transfer Information and Innovative Transfer Models; (7) Is it time for a complete re-examination of the BC Transfer Model?; and (8) Priorities, Suggestions and Advice. Appended: Consultation Paper and Questions. (Contains 2 tables and 4 endnotes.)
