An Integrated On-Line Transfer Credit Evaluation System-Admissions through Graduation Audit.
Schuman, Chester D.
This document discusses a computerized transfer evaluation system designed by Pennsylvania College of Technology, a comprehensive two-year institution with an enrollment of over 4,800 students. It is noted that the Admissions Office processes approximately 500 transfer applications for a fall semester, as well as a large number of evaluations for current students who take summer courses at other institutions. This document discusses how the transfer evaluation system was developed, how it allows the college to efficiently process transfer evaluations, how it is used as a counseling tool, and how it acts as part of an admissions/admittance system. Included is an overview of how the system operates, examples of computer screens, and an example of how the system works on a day-to-day basis. Copies of computer screens used in the process and reproduced in this document include the Graduation Profile, copies of screens used in the evaluation of external credits, and part of the transfer guide for the college.
