Community College-Senior College Articulation in Illinois: Summary of a Report and Recommendations by the Illinois Community College-Senior College Articulation Task Force.
Illinois Univ., Urbana. Office of School and Coll. Relations.
Prepared by the Illinois Community College-Senior College Task Force on Articulation, this report examines the current status of articulation among and between community colleges and senior colleges and universities in Illinois, and recommends a program of articulation for the state. Section I provides an introduction and background to Illinois's efforts to improve articulation in the state. Section II sets the articulation question within the context of a growing lack of consensus among community college and senior college administrators, faculty, and students regarding the articulation of baccalaureate-oriented community college curricula and corresponding four-year college programs. Section III describes the methods used to collect data from community college and senior college representatives, potential transfer students, and transfer students at four-year institutions, while section IV offers a summary of the major findings of the research activities. Section V presents a series of recommendations, including: (1) the refinement of efforts to communicate senior colleges' admissions requirements to potential transfer students; (2) the continuation of the discussion of lower-/upper-division course classification; (3) improved course advising at community colleges; and (4) the designation of faculty or staff at the senior colleges to serve as academic advisors specifically for transfer students.
