English as a Second Language (ESL)

Articulation committees have representation from each BC Transfer System member institution with programs or courses in the subject area. Committees meet annually to discuss issues related to course transfer and curriculum in their subject.

This articulation committee webpage has been designed so that committees can request to have their own content, documents, links or other information presented. Committees also have the option to create a Moodle site for this purpose (see Using Moodle).
