Articulation Agreement Between William Penn College and Indian Hills Community College.
William Penn Coll., Oskaloosa, IA.; Indian Hills Community Coll., Ottumwa, IA.
Interinstitutional cooperation must assume a higher planning priority as competition for students and scarce resources becomes greater. It is perhaps of greatest benefit to students recognizing the purpose of both private and public institutions and wishing to partake of selected educational opportunities from both. Further, upper division enrollees at private four-year colleges are increasingly coming from community colleges. This document results from recognition of these factors by William Penn College, a private institution, and Indian Hills Community College, and sets forth the terms and conditions of an articulation agreement designed to (1) identify specific interinstitutional areas of agreement; (2) set forth the criteria for transferring associate degrees as the first two-year component of the baccalaureate degree; (3) provide for continuous evaluation and review of programs, policies, procedures, and relationships affecting interinstitutional student transfer; (4) recognize those vocational-technical programs which can be articulated into the baccalaureate degree; and (5) recommend revisions, as necessary, to promote the success and general well-being of the students served by the parties to the agreement. Fifteen provisions constitute the bulk of this document. (Author/JDS)
