Using the University Transfer Program, students are able to explore their interests through first- and second-year university courses that may be transferred to a college or university in the second or third program year.
Typically four years in duration, and are offered by all major public and private universities in Canada. These universities use a credit-based system, with majors (specializations) and degree programs requiring completion of a set number of course credits. A standard Bachelor’s degree program requires the completion of 120 credits in total.

What is the University Transfer Program in Canada?
Our Associate of Arts Degree and Associate of Science concentrations:
To gain admission to a university, transfer students have to fulfill that university’s admission requirements. In addition, students may need to fulfill program requirements for admission to certain faculties, departments, or schools.
Alexander College offers a wide range of first- and second-year university courses that are transferable within the BCCAT system and beyond.
In British Columbia, the majority of accredited public and private colleges and universities allow students to transfer their post-secondary credits toward a Bachelor’s degree program of their choice within the British Columbia Council for Admissions and Transfer (BCCAT) system.
Additionally, universities may change their admissions requirements for transfer students without further notice, and this may not be reflected in the standard study plans in a timely manner.
When a student meets with an Academic Advisor to create their study plan, it is guaranteed to be up-to-date.
For help with your university transfer application and program requirements please contact our Academic Advising team.
To assist students in choosing courses that will allow them to successfully transfer to the university, Alexander College offers Academic Advising Services to all its students.
