Equivalency

Courses taken outside of B.C. may be eligible for equivalency credit if they closely match the learning outcomes of some Grades 10, 11 or 12 courses. For example, a student who completes a course in Alberta may receive credit for a comparable course in B.C. through equivalency.

Courses (or programs) taken outside of the B.C. school system may qualify for equivalency credit if:

  • They match approximately 80% or more of the prescribed learning outcomes of an approved B.C. course.
  • The student provides documentation that the learning outcomes of the course were successfully completed.

In general, students should be granted credit, through equivalency, for courses taken in other Canadian provinces and territories.
