External Credit Information

Info about the External Credits Program

The Ministry of Education has completed its review and approval of the Provincial Sport Organizations’ applications for inclusion in the External Credentials - Sport Credit Program. Participation in one of the following programs by BC Alpine athletes could allow the student to be eligible to receive external credits:

 

1. Athlete Programs

BC Alpine has template letters for eligible athletes. Following a request from an athlete who has successfully participated in one of the recognized Athlete Category Sport Programs, the athlete will receive a confirmation letter from BC Alpine to submit to their school for Athlete External Credits. It is the responsibility of the athlete to take the documentation to his or her school counselor to receive the credits.

Student athletes who have in the past participated in the currently approved programs will be eligible for credit. All participation is retroactive so that an athlete can gain credit for past performance/participation as long as the documentation is presented and the participation was during or after the 2004-05 school year.
