Laddering

If the prospect of a bachelor’s degree seems like a distant goal, consider planning your studies in stages.  Complete a certificate or diploma program first and then continue on with the requirements for the BGS.

Laddering is the term used when you earn a certificate or diploma and incorporate the courses taken into the requirements for a subsequent credential. For example, if you have graduated with a certificate or diploma from one of Canada’s public postsecondary institutions you can ladder those studies into the BGS.

Some examples of UFV programs that have laddered into the BGS:

• Agriculture Technology diploma
• Applied Business Technology certificate
• Associate of Arts degree
• Early Childhood Education certificate
• General Studies Diploma
• Library Information Technology diploma
• Social Services Diploma

Do you have questions about how a program you have completed might ladder into the BGS degree program? You can either email bgs@ufv.ca or contact the Arts Advice Centre on 604 557 4028
