You can’t transfer if you are not admitted! The first thing you need to do is apply to the institution to which you want to transfer. You can apply to most public institutions either at their website or through EducationPlannerBC. Each institution sets its own admission requirements, so be sure to review the academic calendar for details regarding institutional policies.
Here are some basics regarding admission as a BC transfer student:
* You must have completed the minimum number of transferable credits (usually 24 or higher) with a minimum GPA of C (or 60% or 2.00 average) or better on all courses, as calculated by the university.
* Admission can be to an institution, a faculty, or a program
The Institution: Your grade point average (GPA) and transfer credits will usually determine if you’re admitted to an institution. At some institutions you must apply and be admitted to a specific program, not just to the institution.
A Faculty or Program: Admission to a faculty or program may involve additional considerations. A Faculty of Science, for example, may expect you to have taken certain math and science courses.
* You must arrange to send all your official transcripts: Arrange for your home institution(s) to send a copy of your official final transcript(s) to the transfer institution. This won’t happen automatically – only you can authorize this. Most institutions charge a transcript fee. Check to see if an official interim transcript is required with your application.
