Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do School of Business courses transfer to other Colleges and Universities?

    Many of our courses transfer to comparable programs in universities and colleges. Since we are always developing new courses, negotiation for transferability is an ongoing process.  You will find information on this subject on the Advising Centre website .

    I work during the day, can I take courses at night?

    From September to April, evening studies courses are available four evenings a week, Monday to Thursday. Evening courses are sometimes offered in May and June.  They are scheduled to enable a student to complete a Business Certificate (6 courses = 18 credits) or an Advanced Business Certificate (10 courses = 30 credits).  For assistance with course selection, please contact Advising or visit their webpages for the Advising Centre.

    Can I transfer courses from other schools into the School of Business programs?

    Yes, courses from other schools can be considered for credit here; however, to determine whether yours will be successfully granted credit please see more details about transfer credits in the admissions area.

    What if I don’t meet the math requirements for admission?

    If you do not meet the math requirements, please contact an Admissions and Advising.  Capilano University offers pre-university level courses.  Please see admission requirements for the School of Business, located in the left menu column on this web page.  There are admission requirements listed under each program area.

    I have booked a flight before my exam date. Can I write my exam(s) early?

    Without exception, exams cannot be written earlier than the scheduled dates.  It is the responsibility of students to be familiar with all policies in course outlines, as well as university policies.

    I would like permission to register for a course for which I do not meet the pre-requisite or for which I believe I have an equivalent course for the pre-requisite.

    You may contact the instructor directly for such queries, as it is the instructor who will decide either way.  For instructor emails, please see the campus phonebook.  To find out who is teaching a course, please see the MyCap Schedule (be sure to select the correct term first).

    What if I have more questions?

    An advisor is available to assist you with detailed program planning at or 604-984-4900. Or, bring your questions to a course planning workshop before registration.  

    The School of Business does offer program planners for many of our program, these are handy checklists for planning your education and can be found on our Course Planning page. 



    What do I do if I want to continue with an Advanced Diploma?

    With the launch of Concentrations in the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree program in September 2016, new applications for Advanced Diploma programs were discontinued. Students who began their studies prior to Fall 2016 had the option of continuing towards an Advanced Diploma, but were notified they must declare their intention by November 30, 2016.  They will then have four years (to Spring 2020) to finish the requirements.
