Curriculum and Credit Transfer Problems in the Upper Level Institutions.
Marsh, Robert
Transfer procedures in the case of students transferring from junior colleges to upper level institutions (institutions offering only upper level and graduate work) should be as flexible as possible. Four major points should be followed closely in developing transfer policies: (1) Upper level institutions should develop programs that cater to the needs and interests of junior college graduates. (2) Upper level institutions should accept without question all graduates of junior colleges who have earned the Associate of Arts or the Associate of Science Degree. (3) Upper level institutions should set up guidelines for the general curriculum junior college students should take, but they must not quibble about specific courses. (4) Upper level institutions should give credit and accept students on the basis of life experience as well as on formal credits earned. (HS)
