October 16, 2014

Credit transfer councils in Alberta, British Columbia, New Brunswick, and Ontario have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) that will help reduce barriers for students wishing to transfer between Canadian colleges and universities. The agreement, signed by the AB Council on Admissions and Transfer (ACAT), the BC Council on Admissions and Transfer (BCCAT), the NB Council on Articulations and Transfer (NBCAT), and the ON Council on Articulation and Transfer (ONCAT), calls on each organization to enhance information channels for students, help institutions build additional pathways, and engage in research that will lead to comprehensive, transparent pan-Canadian credit transfer and student mobility processes. The groups also agree in the MOU to take on a more pronounced leadership role in enhancing student mobility through outreach and engagement with a number of key organizations. ONCAT News Release
