Articulation Agreements: A Report.
Nebraska Coordinating Commission for Postsecondary Education, Lincoln.
Designed to assist the Nebraska Coordinating Commission for Postsecondary Education (NCCPE) in the development of a statewide policy for transfer of credit from two- and four-year postsecondary institutions and a smooth transition from secondary to postsecondary learning, this report describes articulation agreements and cooperative programs in place at the state's colleges and universities. The document begins with a two-page status report on articulation in Nebraska, highlighting the role of the state's community colleges in providing affordable entry-level postsecondary education. The bulk of the report consists of brief descriptions of agreements relating to articulation or cooperative programming in place at Nebraska postsecondary institutions. Institutions are categorized by the six divisions in Nebraska higher education (i.e., community colleges, state colleges, the University of Nebraska system, independent colleges and universities, federally supported institutions, and proprietary institutions), and for each, the nature of the arrangement and the participating institutions are provided. Three appendixes are included, of which the first discusses goals and funding for Tech Prep programs in Nebraska, designed to prepare secondary students for technologically advanced careers by course sequences and experience from the secondary to postsecondary levels; the second describes Tech Prep and other cooperative ventures between community colleges and secondary schools; and the third provides the articulation agreement of the Nebraska Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers.
