What We Do

Established in 1989, the BC Council on Admissions & Transfer (BCCAT) oversees the BC Transfer System, enabling important links between the BC post-secondary institutions, the education ministries, and the public and private education sectors.

BCCAT facilitates admission, articulation, application, and transfer arrangements among BC post-secondary institutions for the benefit of students.

This involves:

  • ENGAGEMENT: BCCAT engages post-secondary partners by working collaboratively to address credit transfer challenges and opportunities

  • INFORMATION: BCCAT informs institutions and other post-secondary partners through conducting research, providing advice, and answering questions related to student transfer, mobility, and success in the BC post-secondary system.

  • SUPPORT: BCCAT supports BC students by providing web-based planning tools (, and assists the transfer and articulation community by delivering substantive resources and streamlined services
