Transferability of Credits from AAS Degree Programs at Technical Education Centers to Public Four-Year Colleges and Universities in South Carolina.
Krech, Alan S.
Institutions were asked to send data on the total number of graduates from degree programs in Technical Education Centers who applied to their institutions, and the total number who were accepted. Results indicated that: (1) No applicant who completed an AAS degree program was denied admission to a public 4-year institution and that applicants who had not completed their degree programs were generally admitted if their academic records reflected some minimum quality of academic achievement. (2) Out of 17 cases of students who transferred from nondegree programs in Technical Education Centers, 11 students received some credit for diploma work completed in Technical Education Centers. (3) One hundred and eleven students transferred from AAS degree programs at Technical Education Centers to 4-year public institutions in the fall term of 1972. Of these 111, 59 had received their associate degrees, 51 had not completed their associate degree programs, and one student's status was unknown. The conclusion suggests the need for a reexamination, based on the above facts, of present transfer policies in terms of sound educational criteria, thus leading to greater statewide consistency in this area.
