Report of the Transfer Articulation Task Force.
Arizona State Board of Directors for Community Colleges, Phoenix.; Arizona Board of Regents, Phoenix.
This report to the Arizona State Legislature describes a model transfer system developed by the Transfer Articulation Task Force, a cooperative effort among the state's universities and community colleges to improve articulation and transfer. Following an introduction to the Task Force, elements of the proposed transfer model are reviewed, including a limit on credits that can be transferred to a baccalaureate degree; the development of transfer degrees at community colleges, general education requirements, and common major requirements for equivalent majors; the ability to transfer blocks of courses; and the establishment of six major categories into which students can transfer. The following three support systems for the model are then described: (1) a new management system, discussing organizational structure, the division of responsibilities and the role of the articulation facilitator (ATF), faculty selection and training for ATFs, accountability, and implementation; (2) a new advising system, including provisions for enhanced advocacy for students, student access to proactive advising, support for student decision-making, advising networks, staff development and support, and evaluation; and (3) computer-based information systems, including a course applicability system to aid in curriculum development and a transfer student data warehouse to assist potential transfer students and advisors. Guiding principles for articulation task forces, a recommended process for developing new transfer degrees and suggested criteria, an organizational chart of state agencies, an ATF position description, and a description of the duties of articulation support services are attached.
