The Pan-Canadian Consortium on Admissions & Transfer and the Association of Registrars of the Universities & Colleges of Canada are pleased to announce the launch of Phase Two of the ARUCC/PCCAT National Project Transcript Guidelines and Transfer Credit Nomenclature Study.

The next stage of the project over the summer months and early fall will focus on reviewing all the data submitted in the spring 2015 time period; developing the transcript standards and transfer credit nomenclature; and building, testing and loading the national, online searchable database. The goal is to launch the national database in the fall of 2015.

Questions regarding the project can be directed to Joanne Duklas, Primary Investigator and Project Lead (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
