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 an Academic Advisor early, in your studies.
For more information on how course transfer works from Douglas to another post-secondary institution, see our Course Planning Guide for transfer students.
An Associate degree allows you to complete the first two years (60 credits) of a four-year bachelor’s degree at Douglas before transferring to university. Douglas offers associate degrees in both Arts and Science disciplines. The following checklists will help you plan and track your progress toward completion of an associate degree.
Many Douglas students transfer to SFU or UBC. To make the process easier, we have developed university transfer planning guides and professional program guides for the most common bachelor’s degrees and professional programs Douglas students pursue. These guides tell you the specific SFU or UBC courses required for your chosen major, Douglas College course equivalencies and any prerequisites for these courses.
NOTE: These guides are not official transfer tables, but a resource to assist you in planning. To get the most current and accurate information, consult the BC Transfer Guide and the admissions pages of the university you plan to transfer to.
