STUDY OF INSTITUTIONAL POLICIES REGARDING ACCEPTANCE OF TRANSFER OF CREDIT FROM TECHNICAL-TERMINAL PROGRAMS IN JUNIOR COLLEGES.
Auburn Univ., AL.
QUESTIONNAIRE RESPONSES FROM 17 STATE UNIVERSITIES AND LAND-GRANT COLLEGES IN THE SOUTHERN REGION WERE OBTAINED TO PERMIT COMPARISON OF PRACTICES AND TO ASSIST IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN EQUITABLE POLICY TOWARD TRANSFER CREDIT ACCEPTANCE AT AUBURN. NINE INSTITUTIONS INDICATED THAT NO WORK COMPLETED IN A TERMINAL-TECHNICAL PROGRAM IN A JUNIOR COLLEGE WOULD BE ACCEPTED IN A TRANSFER TO A BACCALAUREATE DEGREE PROGRAM. THOSE INSTITUTIONS WHICH DID INDICATE CONCERN WITH THIS PROBLEM SEEM TO HAVE EVOLVED A POLICY WHEREBY TERMINAL-TECHNICAL WORK IS ACCEPTED IN TRANSFER EITHER ON THE BASIS OF SATISFACTORY SCORES ON PROFICIENCY EXAMINATIONS, ON THE BASIS OF VALIDATION WORK, OR OUTRIGHT, PROVIDED THAT THE STUDENT'S GRADES HAD BEEN SATISFACTORY. IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT THE AUBURN POLICY REFLECT CONSIDERATION OF THE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN THE STUDENT'S PROGRAM AT THE JUNIOR COLLEGE AND THE CURRICULUM TO WHICH HE IS TRANSFERRING. (AL)
