BC Transfer Students: Profile and Performance Report (2008/09-2012/13)
Tikina, Anna
British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer
The British Columbia (BC) Council on Admissions and Transfer has been periodically publishing BC College Transfer Student Profile reports for almost 25 years. Historically, these reports tracked the mobility of students from colleges and institutes to degree granting research-intensive universities in BC, the pathway which is often referred to as linear or vertical transfer. While transfer patterns in BC have always been more complex than in many U.S. jurisdictions, given the wider variety of institutions that participate in the BC Transfer System, patterns have become even more complex during the period examined in this report. The BC post-secondary system witnessed significant change in the last decade. This report aims at analyzing demographic characteristics and academic performance of transfer students to research-intensive universities in BC during 2008/09-2012/13 academic years. Other transfer pathways were not considered. Transfer student profiles and performance data constitute two sections in this report. The first section reports on the number of transfer students by year, by sending institution, transfer credit volume, credits undertaken in the first 12 months at the receiving institution, program, age and gender. The second section contains data regarding academic performance: grade point averages at various points of their studies, number of months and credits to complete the degree and degree completion rates. The following are appended: (1) Selected RRU courses taken by transfer students with the number of students and course GPA (course title list at the end of the Appendix A); (2) Selected SFU courses taken by transfer students with the number of students, their admission GPA (where possible) and course GPA (course titles are listed in Table 34 of the report); (3) Selected TRU courses taken by transfer students with the number of students and course GPA (course titles are listed in Table 35 of the report); (4) Selected UBC-V courses taken by transfer students with the number of students, their admission GPA (where possible) and course GPA (course titles are listed in Table 36 of the report); (5) Selected UBC-O courses taken by transfer students with the number of students, their admission GPA (where possible) and course GPA (course titles are listed in Table 37 of the report); (6) Selected UNBC courses taken by transfer students with the number of students, their admission GPA (where possible) and course GPA (course titles are listed in Table 38 of the report); and (7) Selected UVic courses taken by transfer students with the number of students, their admission GPA (where possible) and course GPA (course titles are listed in Table 39 of the report).
