BCCAT Research 

Learning about Access and Mobility
in the BC Transfer System

BCCAT research examines key questions about student access, mobility, and success. These projects inform BCCAT and our post-secondary partners on the development of policies and processes, strengthening support for students as they move towards their educational goals. Our projects are identified through outreach to, and feedback from BC Transfer System partners and the broader post-secondary community. The 2018-19 Research Plan outlines current research and potential projects being considered for future years. Click here to view this year's research plan.

How to Articulate: New Edition!

The How to Articulate handbook has been updated, and the new edition is now available. The revised handbook now incorporates the content previously provided in the "Sender's" and "Receiver's" guides. The handbook is designed to be a resource for institutions, departments, faculty members, and articulation committees who are involved in articulating courses and programs for transfer credit within the BC Transfer System. The content is based on best practices observed and recorded by BCCAT over many years of coordinating and administering articulation and transfer activities.

CLEARING THE WAY:

Improving Access for BC's Diverse Post-Secondary Learners

BCCAT works together with post-secondary partners to improve access to pathways, enabling diverse learners to advance towards their educational goals. BCCAT's 2018-19 Annual Review presents highlights on recent projects and activities undertaken by the Council in support of these objectives.
