BC Council on Admissions & Transfer

Council members are appointed by the Minister responsible for post-secondary institutions and are representatives selected from public universities, colleges, institutes; private post-secondary education; and the public secondary school system.

The Council guides the work of standing committees, each devoted to different aspects of the Council’s mandate. The work of the Council and committees is coordinated by a small team of staff.
