Ministry of Advanced Education

Student Transitions Project

Overview

The Student Transitions Project links data about students in the B.C. public post-secondary education system with information from their years in kindergarten to Grade 12. The data comes from nine-digit personal education numbers, or PENs, which are assigned to every student entering the B.C. education system.

There are strict procedures in place to ensure that individual privacy is protected. The data exchanged as part of the project cannot be used to make decisions about individual students.

This information is helping the Ministry of Advanced Education, the Ministry of Education, school districts and post-secondary institutions plan and manage programs effectively to ensure student success in higher education.
