British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer
The role of the British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer (BCCAT) is to facilitate admission, articulation, and transfer arrangements in the BC post-secondary system. BCCAT carries out this work in various ways; for example, engaging in research on admissions and student transitions, evaluating the effectiveness of the transfer system and determining where improvements could be made, developing key resources for system stakeholders, providing web tools for post-secondary planning, encouraging policy and practices to support student mobility, and working towards an expanded transfer system in BC. This report presents a detailed account of the projects and activities carried out by BCCAT this past year. The Council's work involves a wide range of activities, all focused on facilitating admission, articulation, and transfer in BC. In 2008-09, considerable progress was made in three main areas of the Council's Work Plan: (1) implementation of recommendations arising from the Recalibrating the BC Transfer System consultation; (2) research on student mobility; and (3) a number of projects related to Admissions and Research. Appended to this report are: (1) 2008-09 Publications and Resources; (2) Recalibration Project: Recommendation Summary and Update; (3) 2008-09 Activities Related to Expanding the BC Transfer System; and (4) Promotional Materials.
