These Course Planning documents are intended for use only as a guide. They are created by the Langara Counselling Department based on University Academic Calendars and the British Columbia Transfer Guide. Please visit the University of British Columbia (UBC) and Simon Fraser University (SFU) websites for official information on course/program requirements; it is the student’s responsibility to consult original sources to ensure accuracy.
An Arts and Science University Transfer handout has been designed to help prospective and new students understand how the university transfer process works. If you have any questions please contact us.
For Langara course transferability to other universities, colleges and institutes within British Columbia, please refer to the British Columbia Transfer Guide.
For Langara block transferability to other universities, colleges and institutes within British Columbia, please refer to the Block Transfer Credit section of the British Columbia Transfer Guide.

Langara students interested in transferring outside of BC should contact the admissions office at institutions of interest. While the BC Transfer Guide only indicates how Langara courses get transfer credit at other post-secondary institutions within British Columbia, many Langara courses are recognized for transfer credit at institutions outside the province and country. Students can consult the institution's website (program information can usually be found by searching "academic calendar" or visiting department webpages) and review course requirements for the program(s) of interest. It can be helpful to review Langara's course offerings to see if the College offers courses with the same or similar content, and to ask if these courses would receive transfer credit towards a student's degree or program of choice at the institution outside of BC. Each institution would have their own process for assessing transfer credit so it's best to contact them directly; admissions personnel handling transfer credit may request students' Langara official transcript and course outlines, and it can be helpful to provide them with a list of how Langara courses are given transfer credit at the main research institutions in BC (i.e., UBC, SFU, UNBC, UVIC) which can be found by searching the BC Transfer Guide.
