Vancouver Premier College has established a comprehensive set of policies to ensure that students are informed during their post-secondary educational journey. Among the value-added policies developed by VPC is the Credit Transfer Guarantee that ensures students who earn credit at a VPC institution can transfer that credit to any other VPC institution or program thereby reducing the time and cost associated with program and credential completion.
Board of Directors’ or Governance Policies typically encompass the various roles, responsibilities and accountabilities of VPC’s Board of Directors which is comprised of the majority shareholders, executive administrators and other representatives that serve the interests of VPC stakeholders and the public that exists within the BC post-secondary education environment.
Academic Policies govern VPC’s various institutional programs and academic life of students, instructors and academic administrators. These policies address all aspects of educational administration including but not limited to the requirements for admission and graduation; course administration; student and instructor evaluation; and, awarding of institutional certificates and diplomas.
Administrative and Operational Policies include those policies and procedures that guide the effective and efficient management, administration and operation of VPC institutions inclusive of its departments and facilities. These policies include human resources, health and safety, management information systems, finance, budgeting, maintenance, and building security.
The process by which policy and financial accountability is ensured in private post-secondary educational institutions differs somewhat from the processes used by provincial government supported institutions due primarily to the fact that government does not provide any financial support or assistance to private, for profit educational institutions. Notwithstanding, VPC is regulated by and is accountable to the Private Training Institutions Branch of the BC Ministry of Advanced Education, Skills and Training for the development and filing of audited financial statements, the posting of bonds to ensure VPC’s long term commitments to its students are met, and, to undergo an annual quality review by the Private Training Institutions Branch.
