Introduction

The Sender's Guide was developed primarily to assist BC Transfer System member institutions in performing sending functions. Institutions are encouraged to consult this guide and use those sections most relevant to their needs. In addition, BCCAT’s handbook How to Articulate contains a wealth of practical advice on many procedural and policy issues surrounding articulation. It would be redundant for this guide to cover the same topics; therefore, the contents of this guide should be used in combination with the contents of How to Articulate. 

A note about the term “sending institution”: As a result of the Enabling the BC Transfer System initiative, BCCAT has moved away from using the terms “sending institution” and “receiving institution”, in recognition that all BC Transfer System member institutions are free to determine the size and scope of the role they wish to play within the transfer system.  While the term “sending institution” is used in this handbook, it is used with the acknowledgement that sending articulation requests is only one of the many activities that institutions perform in relation to articulation and transfer. In addition, BCCAT’s handbook How to Articulate contains a wealth of practical advice on many procedural and policy issues surrounding articulation. It would be redundant for this guide to cover the same topics; therefore, the contents of this guide should be used in combination with the contents of How to Articulate.
