Did you know?
To be recognized for past educational performance you may transfer up to 75% of the credits required for your credential.
These credits must be from an accredited post-secondary institute and the minimum mark must C grade (60%). Students educated by BC post secondary institutions from around the world should refer to the BC Transfer Guide to see if credit has been established with CMTN or one of the provincial research universities. In order to receive transfer credit at CMTN you must be a registered student.
Transfer from BC post-secondary institutions
There are two processes for students with credit from BC post-secondary:
1. Courses recognized in the BC Transfer Guide
If your course appears in the BC Transfer Guide, it means that the course has an articulation in place. Please pay the $25.00 application fee and submit a Transfer Credit Request Form [PDF] and an official transcript. Transcripts are considered official when they are submitted in the envelop from the institution you attended (most institutions can mail or send transcripts electronically directly to the college).
2. Courses not recognized in the BC Transfer Guide
For courses that are not formally articulated, course outlines will need to be submitted in addition to the $25.00 application fee, Transfer Credit Request Form [PDF] and official transcripts. Course outlines can be submitted at the time of the request, either in person, by mail or as PDF attachments in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Remember to include “Transfer request” and your CMTN student number in the subject line.
3. Letters of Permission
If you want to request pre-approval to receive credit for a course not yet complete at another BC post-secondary institution, please complete the Transfer Credit Letter of Permission Request Form [PDF]. You can either print it off and mail it to the Registrar's Office or fill it out, save it to your computer, and attach it to an email. Please send it to: email@example.com and include "Letter of Permission form and your student number" in the subject line. Allow 2 weeks for this review to take place and the Registrars Office will email the outcome of the review. If approved, official transcripts must be submitted to award credit.
Once you have successfully completed the pre-approved course with a final grade of C (60%) or higher, please pay the $25.00 application fee and submit a Transfer Credit Request Form [PDF], and an official transcript from the sending institution.
Credit requests from post-secondary institutions outside British Columbia
Coast Mountain College encourages applicants from all over the world. If you have been trained outside the province of British Columbia, you are still eligible to receive transfer credits, but you will need to submit additional documentation to support your transfer credit. Documentation will differ if you were educated in another Canadian province or if you were trained in another country.
Other Canadian provinces
Complete and submit a Transfer Credit Request Form [PDF], an official transcript and course outlines for each of the courses you would like to be considered for credit. Transcripts are considered official when they are submitted in the envelop from the institution you attended. The course outlines can be sent in with the request form as PDF attachments or submitted separately to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Subject matter experts are the college will be consulted to see if the content matches the level and curriculum of the course your have requested credit for. Please allow 6-8 weeks for this review to take place and the Registrars Office will email the outcome of the review.
Submit a Transfer Credit Request Form and a comprehensive evaluation of your credential. Comprehensive evaluations can be obtained in BC through the International Credential Evaluation Service (ICES). Other acceptable external credential evaluation services can be found at Alliance of Credential Evaluation Services of Canada). All costs associated with this evaluation are the responsibility of the student, and students should expect additional time for these evaluations to complete the review. Similar to an official transcript, comprehensive evaluations will be considered official when they are submitted in the sealed envelop from the credential evaluation service (these evaluations can be mailed directly to the college).
