Coast Mountain College

Coast Mountain College (CMTN) was established in 1975 at the site of the BC Vocational School in Terrace, BC. Since then the college has grown to be a diverse, decentralized institution that strives to meet the lifelong learning needs of Northwest residents.

The college region encompasses 80,000 square kilometres serving 90,000 residents. There are ten campus/centre locations in: Hazelton, Kitimat, Nass Valley, Prince Rupert, Queen Charlotte City, Smithers, Stewart and Terrace.

The college offers students the opportunity to select from a wide selection of basic education, career, vocational, trade, academic/university transfer and special education programs.

  • Transfer Credits

    To be recognized for past educational performance you may transfer up to 75% of the credits required for your credential.


    These credits must be from an accredited post-secondary institute and the minimum mark must C grade (60%). Students educated by BC post secondary institutions should refer to the BC Transfer Guide to see if credit has been established with CMTN or one of the provincial research universities. In order to receive transfer credit at CMTN you must be a registered student.

    Courses recognized in the BC Transfer Guide


    If your course appears in the BC Transfer Guide, it means that the course has an articulation in place. Please submit a Transfer Credit Request Form [PDF] and an official transcript. Transcripts are considered official when they are submitted in the envelop from the institution you attended (most institutions can mail transcripts directly to the college).


    Courses not formally articulated
