Nevada Univ. System, Reno.
Nevada's policies on student transfer from the community colleges to the universities in the University of Nevada System (UNS) are codified in this statement. After section 1 outlines the assumptions underlying the state policy, section 2 presents the UNS Articulation Board's role with respect to policy recommendations, the establishment of task forces, research development, and the creation of procedures to improve articulation and communication among institutions. Section 3 discusses the conditions under which associate in arts (AA) graduates, students with other degrees and certificates, and non-degreed students may be admitted to senior institutions. This section covers AA-degree requirements, transferability of credit, academic standards, and other admissions requirements. Section 4 mandates the maintenance of a Master Course File, to list baccalaureate-level community college courses, and systemwide guides to transfer courses. Section 5 defines transfer courses, outlines procedures, and specifies the maximum number of transferable credits, while section 6 identifies the course numbering system to be used in all institutions. After section 7 outlines methods of curriculum planning and means of satisfying credit requirements, section 8 indicates ways of satisfying course requirements by examination. Finally, section 9 presents the policy on concurrent registration, and section 10 outlines the role of counselors, advisors, and other student services personnel with respect to transfer students.
