BCCAT facilitates the operation of the BC Transfer System by administering the operations of the BC Transfer Guide and Education Planner. BCCAT also facilitates and supports the work of 68 articulation committees. These committees promote communication and discussion about articulation and transfer issues within disciplines and subjects. BCCAT also provides policy guidelines and research resources to assist in developing efficient and effective articulation practices and represents the BC Transfer System in interactions with relevant institutions, associations, and agencies.
The members of the Council are appointed by the BC ministry responsible for advanced education and represent different functions, institutions, and positions within the BC post-secondary system. The Council meets regularly to set the direction and policy that guides the work of BCCAT's staff members. There are also four committees that advise BCCAT in its work: Transfer and Articulation, Research, Education Planner, and Admissions.
BCCAT's work is advisory and facilitative. BCCAT does not make decisions on individual transfer credit requests, and it does not direct institutions' actions regarding transfer unless the issue involves compliance with BCCAT's operating policies or principles. BCCAT also does not make rulings in transfer-related disputes between institutions. However, it can facilitate discussions with the goal of resolving such disputes.
