How CGA-BC Grants Transfer Credit Status
To Post Secondary Courses
When business course administrators seek CGA transfer credit status for their courses, CGA-BC’s Education Services department performs a close examination of the course.
In particular, CGA-BC reviews how closely the course matches CGA course requirements and takes a long look at the course outline.
We also review the course prerequisites, text and supplemental materials to see if the course covers the appropriate subject material.
In a similar vein we also review:
- Course credits
- Course format
- Length of the course in hours
- Grading system.
We also compare the post secondary course’s methods of evaluation to the CGA standards. These include assignments and quizzes, class participation, mid-term exams and final examinations. This review includes the weighting and degree of knowledge and proficiency required to successfully complete assignments and exams.
If and when a course is granted transfer credit status, the post secondary school is contacted and the course is included in CGA-BC’s transfer credit guide, online and in print.
