BCCAT is often asked how courses are evaluated and end up in the BC Transfer Guide. The Transfer Credit Evaluation System (TCES) has been developed to help facilitate the creation and maintenance of articulations in the BC Transfer Guide. The TCES is a web-based application which allows institutions to submit articulation requests, and allows institutions to respond to requests to create a formal transfer agreement. Once an agreement is made, it is verified by BCCAT and then published in the BC Transfer Guide. The system has a variety of additional functions designed to assist institutions in the maintenance and processing of articulation requests. A basic flow chart of the process of creating transfer agreements is as follows:
Each institution has an account in the TCES that provides access to agreements published in the BC Transfer Guide. The TCES is accessed by either the Institutional Contact Person (ICP), or the Transfer Credit Contact (TCC) at the registrar's office of the institution. These two roles are BCCAT's conduit to the institutions, and liaise with faculty and academic staff to support the maintenance and evaluation of articulation requests. If you would like to have a course submitted for evaluation, or wish to check the status of an articulation request, please contact either the ICP or TCC of your institution.
