UBC is working with BCCAT to adapt the Transfer Credit System (TCS) to house all of their agreements outside of BC and internationally. Data is currently being imported into the TCS, which will be customized to allow for all of the agreements to be managed within the same interface. This data will then be available to all other post-secondary institutions, as well as on the UBC website. So far, about 40,000 non-BC and international equivalencies from both UBC campuses are scheduled to be imported. In addition, approximately 16,000 equivalencies to other BC Transfer System members have already been imported and published in the BC Transfer Guide.
This pilot project has huge potential, with other BC post-secondary institutions already expressing great interest in following UBC’s lead.
