Non-member Institutions in the Learner Pathways System
Transfer decisions involving non-member institutions are also accessible via the Learner Pathways System.
The Alberta Council on Admissions and Transfer passed a policy in 2012 allowing Alberta Transfer System member institutions to share their decisions with non-member post-secondary institutions. The member institution must be the “to” or receiving institution.
The ACAT Secretariat maintains non-member institution offering data in the Learner Pathways System (LPS). Alberta Transfer and Pathways System member institutions can upload and publish their decisions in the same manner as member institutions. Where a member institution has a decision(s) with a non-member institution for its offerings, the member institution Contact Person can request the non-member institution and offerings be added to the LPS. The member institution does this by submitting a request to the ACAT Secretariat at email@example.com. Then, the member institution can add the transfer decision(s) with the non-member(s) institution.
Non-member data is intended to provide member institutions a means to share transfer decisions they have already made, rather than a means to ”assess” the transferability of non-member offerings.
The ACAT Secretariat is responsible for managing non-member offerings data. The Secretariat will add non-member institutions and offerings to the LPS. If a member institution would like to share their transfer decisions(s) with a non-member institution(s), contact the ACAT Secretariat with the institution name and list of offerings.
LPS member institutions are responsible for managing their decisions.
