Program Description

Program Description

Option A: (SFU Computing Science and Software Systems transfer)

  1. Assured SFU Computing Science and Software Systems Degree 2nd year Admission Pathway
  2. Assured admission under this pathway requires completion of the VCC Computer Science and Software Systems Certificate. Students must have an overall average GPA of 2.75 on the courses required for the pathway which are listed below (calculated based on the best attempt for each course) and an overall average of 2.75 (again, calculated based on the best attempt for each course) on all work combined in order to be considered for the 'assured admission' pathway. Students who have been previously required to withdraw from another institution would be considered ineligible for the 'assured admission' pathway as would students who were formerly in a Computing, Engineering or Mechatronics program at SFU.

    The following courses must be completed as part of this pathway: CMPT 1010, CMPT 1020, MATH 1100, MATH 1120, MATH 1200, MATH 1221, SCIE 1100, SCIE 1110, and two of the following electives; SOCI 1100, SOCI 1200 ECON 1100, ECON 1200, PSYC 1100 or PSYC 1200.

    Of these courses, the following core courses must be taken at VCC: SCIE 1110, SCIE 1100, CMPT 1010 and CMPT 1020. Other (non-core) courses in the certificate that are taken at post-secondary institutions other than VCC may be used towards completion of the VCC/SFU Computing pathway, providing that they transfer independently to SFU and receive the same credit at SFU as does the VCC pathway course. All credits must be obtained within sixteen months.

    In addition, for at least two of the terms at VCC students would need to meet a minimum course load of 12 credits.

  3. Competitive Computing Science and Software Systems Degree 2nd year Admission Pathway
  4. For competitive admission into 2nd year of the SFU Computing Science and Software System Degree, students must complete a minimum 24 units of transferable course work, including: one mathematics course chosen from MATH 1120, MATH 1100, MATH 1200 and MATH 1221; CMPT 1020 (for which CMPT 1010 is a prerequisite); and one additional mathematics course chosen from the above list. Full details can be found on SFU's College/University site under the program specific requirements for Computing Science students.

    Applicants from both pathways must meet the general SFU English language and quantitative admission requirements.

    Option B: (UBC BSc in Computer Science transfer)

    No assured admission agreement is in place with UBC. To attempt admission into the 2nd year of the BSc in Computer Science at UBC students must complete the following courses: CMPT 1010, CMPT 1020, MATH 1100, MATH 1120, MATH 1200, MATH 1221, and BIOL 1100 or BIOL 1200.

    In addition, students must take:

    • Two science elective chosen from PHYS 1100, PHYS 1200, CHEM 1121, CHEM 1223 (please check pre-requisites and course schedules)

    Please visit the UBC Faculty of Science post-secondary transfer website for further information.

    Option C: (UBC BA in Computer Science transfer)

    No assured admission agreement is in place with UBC. To attempt admission into the 2nd year of the BA in Computer Science at UBC it is recommended that students complete the following courses: CMPT 1010, CMPT 1020, MATH 1100, MATH 1120, MATH 1200, and MATH 1221. In addition, it is recommended that students take:

    • Three elective courses chosen from ENGL 1100, SOCI 1100, SOCI 1200 ECON 1100, ECON 1200, PSYC 1100 or PSYC 1200

    The required GPA for transfer to other post-secondary institutions may vary based on transfer agreements with other institutions.


    Evaluation of Student Learning

    Evaluation of the courses is determined by the instructor and may include a combination of practical assignments, projects, theory exam and/or practical exams.

    Successful completion of a minimum of 30 credits of university transfer articulated first year courses as per the British Columbia Council on Admission and Transfer Guide (BCCAT) is required for completion of the certificate.


    Once you have completed all of the required courses to be eligible for this certificate you can complete the Application for Credential and submit to records@vcc.ca.
