Courses taken outside of B.C. may be eligible for equivalency credit if they closely match the content 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:

  • Sufficient content has been covered to enable the student to be successful in further learning in the content area
  • The student provides documentation that the learning standards of the course were successfully completed

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