Development of an Articulation Handbook.
Strain, Judith A.
Although the completion of an associate degree at a public community college in Kansas fulfills the lower division requirements for universities in the state, transfer students frequently encounter deficits in requirements for specific baccalaureate degrees and/or programs due to the lack of program integration and problems of transferability of credit. At Butler County Community College (BCCC), a project was developed to clarify some of these problems and to alleviate student fears. First, a contact person was located at each of the state-supported universities to serve as a communications link with BCCC project staff. Next, a complete evaluation by the universities of BCCC catalog listings was requested. Then, program sheets were prepared listing university program requirements and BCCC equivalencies, and copies were sent to the university contact person for correction and approval. Additionally, contacts were asked for general information on transfer requirements and admissions procedures. Finally, the information and program sheets were compiled in a notebook and distributed to appropriate advisors and administrators, as well as made available to students and high school counselors. Although several difficulties were encountered in establishing communications and preparing the program sheets, the project has great potential for helping students reach specific goals and for recruitment. Sample program sheets are included. (HB)
