Emerging Patterns of Statewide Articulation Transfer Agreements.
Kintzer, Frederick C.
This document provides an historical perspective on state government involvement in postsecondary articulation/transfer matters, and a state-by-state discussion of articulation developments in higher education. To date, 39 states have released guidelines or policies regulating the transfer of credit between two- and four-year colleges, and in some cases, procedures directing the articulation of curricula. Of the 39 state documents, 14 contain specifically drawn policies and 13 others are primarily made up of general guidelines. Most of the other 12 states rely almost entirely on interinstitutional agreements, but have also identified a state agency with some degree of statewide responsibility. In these 12 states, including the District of Columbia, statewide guidelines or policies are in the planning process. The final section of this document summarizes the articulation/transfer scene. Articulation/transfer policy agreements should continue to be voluntary. While the need for statewide guidelines and coordination is recognized, authority for policy determination should rest with institutions, although cooperative responsibility between institutions and state agencies is important in the formulation of interinstitutional policies and procedures on articulation/transfer.
