BC’s post-secondary institutions offer a variety of programs, and transfer opens up new possibilities for accessing these programs. For example, if a student does not meet the admission requirements for entering a BC university directly, they may be eligible to apply for admission later as a transfer student. Students can complete up to two years credit (and sometimes more!) and transfer to a university to finish their degree.
Students can also transfer between non-degree programs. For example, you may start a diploma at one institution and finish it at another. Or you can take distance education courses from a variety of places, and transfer the credits back to your “home” institution. Transfer allows students to begin their studies at an institution of their choice, opening up possibilities of taking courses close to home, smaller class sizes, and more affordable tuition fees.
