Western Community College

Western Community College (WCC) was founded in 2012.  Since its inception, WCC has provided educational opportunities to the Fraser Valley and across BC.  With a focus on affordability, WCC helps students develop a career plan that meets their objectives in life, while providing the skills they need to succeed today and along their career journey.

WCC is proud to offer over 60 programs across diverse fields such as aviation, child and family support, health care, hospitality, accounting, information technology, and business management.  This wide range of programing is delivered at certificate, diploma, undergraduate and post-graduate levels, including the Bachelor of Hospitality Management (BHM) degree program.

One of the core beliefs of WCC is that we “transform communities through education”.  These programs have been designed with our community partners to provide real-world training for students to meet community needs.

  • Credit Transfer Policy

    Studies taken at or recognized by other accredited post-secondary institutions may be eligible for credit transfer up to the maximum allowed under the residency requirement (60 credits). Courses appropriate for transfer credit are those that can normally be applied to fulfill specific course or elective requirements of a program.


    Program applicants may request transfer credit for courses successfully completed at any recognized and accredited post-secondary institution. Courses completed at British Columbia post-secondary institutions will be awarded transfer credits based on the principles of transfer of the BC Transfer System.

  • Credit Transfer Process

    Once accepted into a program of studies, students may request credit transfer by submitting a Transfer Credit Request Form to the Registrar’s Office indicating which credits the applicant wishes to transfer. Additional documents supporting the request, such as a course syllabus or a grading scale, may be requested from the applicant.
    Credit transfer requests must be submitted before the first day of the term. Requests will not be accepted after the first day of the term unless the student is a late applicant.

  • Mature Student Applicants

    WCC understands that as people mature, priorities change and education may become more of a focus to build a career.
    We welcome students who have not completed Grade 12 or the equivalent once you have reached the age of 19.

  • Applicants with Prior Learning (PLA/PLAR)

    WCC will provide applicants with the opportunity to gain formal recognition of learning gained through prior learning experiences determined to be equivalent to college courses, even though that learning may have taken place in non-academic institutions or environments.
    The College is committed to enabling applicants to apply for prior learning assessment and recognition (PLAR), and will grant academic credit where appropriate. The PLAR process is an assessment of life experiences including, but not limited to, the following:

    • Work
    • Training
    • Independent study
    • Demonstration of competencies before objective observer(s)
    • Credit challenge through examinations
    • Testimonials and references from persons familiar with the applicant’s skill set.
