Enhancing Student Transfer: A Memorandum of Understanding between the California Community Colleges and the University of California.
California Univ., Berkeley. Office of the President.
This document discusses student transfer and outlines several goals for its enhancement. Student transfer must be made more efficient, and quality transfer education that leads to eventual attainment of the baccalaureate degree must be ensured. In achieving these objectives, California schools will adopt several goals, described in this memorandum: improve articulation procedures, develop ASSIST (Articulation System Stimulating Interinstitutional Student Transfer) as the official statewide repository for articulation information, reinvigorate transfer center partnerships, enhance transfer alliances, create more part-time options at the University of California, develop baccalaureate financial aid packages, intensify outreach activities, increase data collection and exchange, and enhance cooperative and admissions programs. A committee consisting of systemwide officers, as well as campus administrators, Academic Senate representatives and students will monitor implementation of these activities and assess their progress and effectiveness.
