BCCAT officially names Langara as a "receiving" institution

May 7, 2013

Earlier this week, Langara College announced that it has been formally designated as a "receiving" institution by the British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer (BCCAT). The college, which has historically been listed as a "sending" institution in BCCAT's BC Transfer Guide, will now be listed as "sending and receiving." The first institution officially listed as "sending" to Langara is Simon Fraser University, providing more complete information for students transferring credit from SFU to the college. More PSE schools will be listed as "sending" to Langara in the coming months. "Langara's designation as a receiving institution is a reflection of today's mobile student, who studies at several institutions throughout their career," said Langara's provost. According to a BCCAT report released earlier this year, student mobility between PSE institutions has become increasingly multi-directional, as opposed to the traditional model of students moving from colleges to research universities.
