Transfer of College Credits and Off-Campus Learning.
In response to numerous complaints from evening college students across the country, a study on transfer of college credits was sanctioned by the United States Association of Evening Students (USAES). The purpose of this report is to emphasize and make administrators, deans, and faculty of institutions of higher education aware of problems associated with transfer credits as students become more mobile. The report reflects the issues at hand including off-campus learning, and what trends are being implemented to reform the educational process in terms of credentials. The study concludes that a locally, regionally, or nationally organized agency should be formed to oversee and monitor transfer credits. Further, there must be cooperation among the evening college deans and administrators in the form of scheduled meetings in order to make this program feasible. It is hoped that such meetings are encouraged among local colleges so they could periodically review related course requirements for ease of transfer credit evaluation. (HS)
