University Canada West participates in the British Columbia post-secondary system that facilitates student transfer between educational institutions. The British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer (BCCAT) oversees this system. The Council coordinates agreements between institutions regarding student transfer of course credits from one post-secondary institution to another.
