Policy for Facilitating Student Mobility in Massachusetts Higher Education and Commonwealth Transfer Compact.
Massachusetts State Board of Higher Education, Boston.
In an effort to facilitate student mobility in Massachusetts higher education for two-year college students to the upper division of four-year institutions, the Massachusetts Transfer Review Council initiated a Commonwealth Transfer Compact. The policy statement indicates that an associate degree from any community college signatory to the CTC will be honored as a unit and construed as: (1) completion of at least 60 hours of work toward a baccalaureate degree, and (2) completion of at least 33 credit hours toward fulfillment of the general education requirements for the baccalaureate degree. Signatory institutions will honor this policy and adhere to (1) the following: the definition of an associate degree transferable as a unit toward a baccalaureate degree as the equivalent of 60 credit hours of undergraduate college-level study, including 6 hours of English/communication, 9 hours of behavioral/social sciences, 9 hours of humanities/fine arts, 9 hours of mathematics/sciences, and the remaining credits to be on a college level; (2) the awarding, upon acceptance, of the full number of credits earned while enrolled in the associate degree program; and (3) continuous review and evaluation of the implementation of this policy and referral to the Massachusetts Transfer Review Council of problems related to student mobility. Clarifications and an application admission form are included. (MJM)
