A Review of SUNY's Transfer and Articulation Policies and Enrollment Initiatives. How Effectively Are These Initiatives Serving Transfer Students?
Edwards, Janet M.
This report examines the State University of New York's (SUNY) transfer and articulation policies and enrollment initiatives, and attempts to determine how effective they are in serving transfer students. The foreword identifies the working papers, data reviews, and analyses from which the report draws. The report is separated into five sections and a concluding statement. Section 1 contains policies pertaining to the transfer of students within SUNY. Section 2 is an analysis of SUNY transfer application and enrollment trends. Section 3 examines the impact of SUNY transfer policies. Section 4 contains a description of the current transfer situation, focusing on main problems and issues. Section 5 provides recommendations for action, some of which include differentiating between the processes of transfer and articulation, eliminating the specific AA (Associates in Arts) and AS (Associates in Science) degree requirements, providing incentives for baccalaureate campuses to increase transfer enrollments, and continuing transfer and articulation research. Appendices include statistics on recent trends in transfer students, summaries of surveys and presidential narratives, an evolution of transfer policies, and copies of previous Board of Trustees transfer policies.
