WHAT DOES ALL THIS MEAN

Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting)
Normally, formal admission requires completion of a minimum of 60 applicable credits or a suitable two-year diploma program. Applicants who do not meet this requirement but possess other post-secondary credits and/or significant experiential learning may also apply and may receive credit for courses taken and/or through Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR). Those assessed as lacking some requirements may be admitted to the degree program provisionally (pending completion of qualifying coursework).
Students who plan to complete a credential through TRU-OL must complete and submit a Program Admission/Transfer Credit form.
Note the following points:
Those with a recognized two-year college business diploma receive a block transfer of up to 60 credits toward the degree. Other recognized diplomas are also eligible but may receive a reduced block transfer.
Those with selected BC Institute of Technology (BCIT) business diplomas receive a block transfer of up to 72 credits toward the degree.
Those with the Certified General Accountants’ Association (CGA) foundation, advanced, and PACE levels receive block transfers of up to 90 credits toward the degree, based on compulsory courses taken in their accounting programs and the association’s mandatory practical experience requirements.
Those who have completed the Certified Management Accountants (CMA) program may apply and are normally awarded a block of 90 transfer credits for successful completion of the CMA’s syllabus, entrance examination, strategic leadership, and experience requirements.
Those in the process of completing the CMA or CGA program are eligible for provisional admission and may take TRU-OL courses concurrent to their CMA or CGA program.
Those who completed diplomas prior to 2001 are required to provide documentation of their recent business experience and evidence of their current knowledge of the use of computers in the workplace.
As listed below, residency requirements, general education requirements, core knowledge requirements, concentration requirements, and elective requirements must be completed.
120 credits, 45 at the upper (300/400) level, with a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 over all courses applicable to the degree but taken outside any block transfer are required.
Minimum grade of C+ is required for all concentration courses (minimum C+ grade requirement is not averaged).
Students may receive up to fifty per cent of credit required for this credential through Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR). Refer to PLAR policies or email Business and Management Studies for more information.
