Transfer credit will be granted only for credit courses.

Introduction to Tourism Accounting

Entrepreneurship Environmental Stewardship
Human Resource Management Co-op, Internship or Practicum

Some institutions may require a minimum grade (such as a C or better) in some or all of these courses. Students must be in good academic standing at the institution at which the credits were earned.

Transferring from a Diploma to a Degree program

Upon acceptance and admission to the degree Program, students who have successfully completed a diploma will be able to transfer a maximum of 60 credits towards the Bachelor of Tourism Management (BTM) Degree. BCIT applicants may be eligible for additional credits due to program length.

Grade requirements may vary for individual courses at each institution. Students may be required to take any prerequisite courses not fulfilled by the Diploma Program.

Students graduating from a diploma program on a co-operative education format are eligible to graduate on a co-op program where offered within the BTM. Students from diploma programs offering field work/practicum/internship will graduate on that basis from the BTM.

General Note

This agreement is based on the assumption that all students entering a Tourism Management Diploma Program have completed the following:

  • B.C. Grade 12 or equivalent
  • B.C. English 12 (some institutions may require minimum grade); or the Language Proficiency Index (LPI) level specified by the institution or program; or equivalent; or a more advanced course
  • B.C. Math 11 (Principles or Applications) with a C+ or better; or Applications of Math 12; or equivalent; or a more advanced course

Students who have not completed these requirements may be required to remedy the deficiency.

This agreement is also based on the assumption that institutions will only grant transfer credit for courses taken for credit (i.e. not for non-credit courses).
