University transfer means starting your education at Douglas and then applying for admission as a transfer student to another institution to complete your studies. A successful transfer requires research and planning. To help you stay on track and achieve your educational goals, meet with a Student Success Advisor early, in your studies.
A course is considered university-transferable (UT) if it transfers to at least one of British Columbia's five research universities (UBC-Vancouver, UBC-Okanagan, Simon Fraser University, University of Victoria, or University of Northern British Columbia) as per the BC transfer guide.
