Bridging the Gap: A Case Study of Cooperative Strategies to Improve the Transfer Experience.
Bowles, Dympna J.; And Others
Two projects involving the City University of New York that address problems associated with the transfer of community college students into senior college programs are described. The City University Course Equivalency Project has provided course-by-course information on credit transfer. Two major phases were involved: the evaluation by each senior college of all community college courses for their equivalence, and the dissemination of this information. In addition, a 1983-1984 pilot study of Queensborough Community College students who transferred to City College investigated the current status of articulation agreements, transfer information, services available at the colleges, and student achievement at the senior college. The 91 transfer students were administered a questionnaire to elicit their views on the transfer process and services they felt would improve the transfer experience. Based on the pilot project, the following recommendations are offered: contact between the community college and senior college to develop and implement articulation agreements should be on both departmental and central administrative levels; dissemination of information on articulation policies and practices is important; and ready and early access to articulation information improves students' transfer experience.
