University Canada West
University Canada West (UCW) is an innovative business and technology-oriented university with two campuses in downtown Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
The Vancouver House Campus, located at 1461 Granville St., and the West Pender Campus located at 626 West Pender St. in the historic London Building.
Phone: 1-877-431-6887. Email: email@example.com
UCW currently offers four degrees – Master of Business Administration, Bachelor of Commerce, Bachelor of Arts in Business Communication, and Associate of Arts – under the authority of the Government of British Columbia’s Degree Quality Assessment Board.
With four terms per year, motivated students can complete their degrees more quickly. Each term consists of 10 weeks of classes with two weeks for exams.
A minimum course grade of C (2.00 on a 4.33 scale) or equivalent is required.
The maximum number of credit hours that can be awarded toward degree requirements as a combination of transfer credit and Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) is 30 credit hours for an Associate degree and 60 credit hours for a Bachelor’s degree.
Courses used to meet the requirements of a previously earned undergraduate or graduate degree will not be eligible for transfer credit.
Transfer credit will normally be granted for a course only where UCW offers a parallel or similar course with substantially the same content at a similar level. Specifically,
- lower level undergraduate courses (100-200) do not normally receive credit as upper level (300-400) undergraduate courses, and
- undergraduate courses do not receive credit as graduate courses.
For undergraduate programs, courses of appropriate academic content for which UCW does not offer a similar course may be considered for elective credit.
The full transfer credit policy is available here.
