Web por­tal for post-sec­ondary ed­u­ca­tion credit trans­fers launched

Sackville Tribune - - COMMUNITY -

- A new web-based por­tal will help stu­dents trans­fer their aca­demic cred­its be­tween uni­ver­si­ties and col­leges based in New Brunswick. The pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ment launched the New Brunswick Credit Trans­fer Por­tal Thurs­day, March 15.

The por­tal was de­vel­oped through the New Brunswick Coun­cil on Ar­tic­u­la­tions and Trans­fer, an ad­vi­sory group com­posed of gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials and aca­demic in­sti­tu­tions that work to smooth the tran­si­tion from one in­sti­tu­tion to an­other. The web por­tal is one of the ac­tiv­i­ties it has un­der­taken to achieve its man­date.

“There are many rea­sons why a stu­dent may wish, or need, to trans­fer and move,” said Coulombe. “Our goal is to make that tran­si­tion eas­ier. In do­ing so, we are en­cour­ag­ing stu­dents to com­plete their post-sec­ondary ed­u­ca­tion.”

The web-based trans­fer tool will ben­e­fit stu­dents, coun­sel­lors, univer­sity and col­lege staff, par­ents and any­one seek­ing to pur­sue a post­sec­ondary ed­u­ca­tion. It is avail­able to stu­dents wish­ing to trans­fer within and be­tween New Brunswick in­sti­tu­tions. In­ter­provin­cial credit trans­fers will be grad­u­ally added to the por­tal.
