Transfer Opportunity Program. Written Testimony [to the] Little Hoover Commission Public Hearing on Community Colleges.
Case, Linda B.
This testimony describes existing efforts to promote community college student transfer from the Los Rios Community College District to the University of California (UC), Davis. Since the mid-1980's, UC Davis has participated in collaborative efforts with California community colleges to implement the following transfer-related services: (1) articulation through a Web-based Articulation System Stimulating Interinstitutional Student Transfer (ASSIST) program; (2) transfer centers; (3) the Transfer Opportunity Program; (4) transfer admission agreements (TAAS); (5) Math, Engineering, Science Achievement (MESA)/California Community College Program (CCCP) for non-traditional students; (6) the Early Academic Outreach Program; and (7) counselor institutes. UC Davis proposes several more initiatives to continue promoting transfer: (1) faculty-to-faculty-articulation dialogues; (2) transfer student recruitment, Web-page campaign and degree navigator; (3) Early Academic Outreach Program/Transfer Opportunity Program Adviser; (4) UC Davis/UCOP-Fresno virtual advising collaboration; (5) expansion of the transfer opportunity program to the Santa Clara County region; and (6) expansion of the transfer admission agreement program. Appended are a memorandum on enhancing student transfer, a description of ASSIST software, the Transfer Opportunity Program mission statement, and the UC Davis Transfer Admissions Agreement. (AS)
