College Transfer Guidelines.
Missouri State Dept. of Higher Education, Jefferson City.
Based on a review of Missouri statutes, prior articulation statements, articulation policies in other states, and relevant professional literature, this report offers guidelines to promote and facilitate the transfer of students between institutions of higher education in Missouri. After introductory material discusses the articulation process between two- and four-year institutions, definitions are provided of key terms, including associate of arts, science, and applied science degrees; general education requirements; baccalaureate degree majors; degree programs; lower- and upper-division student status; introductory and specialized courses; and eight transfer student categories. Following a statement of the applicability of the guidelines to public colleges and universities and to the independent sector, guidelines are presented for: (1) freshman and sophomore study and general education requirements; (2) course prerequisites, majors, and degree requirements; (3) teacher education certification; (4) change in major or degree objective; (5) transfer of associate degree programs, non-degree transfers, and transfer of grades; and (6) credit by examination, experiential learning, and pass/fail credit. Next, other considerations for students are discussed in relation to admission, catalog information, academic records, and state certification requirements. Finally, the procedure for the review of the guidelines by a committee on transfer and articulation is outlined. (HB)
