A Community College--University Transfer System for Arizona.
The State Board of Directors for Community Colleges of Arizona is in the process of strengthening and formalizing its university transfer system. This document presents an outline of one possible community college-university transfer system based upon existing agreements and procedures in place. One of the key features of the system is an Automated Transfer Program Guide to provide accurate, reliable, and timely information on how a student's community college transcript would be evaluated for transfer into the academic programs at the state's public universities. One of the first steps is to transform the current paper-based course equivalency guide into electronic format in order to ease maintenance and expand its usability. Curriculum check-sheets that describe the courses a student should take during their first two years at a community college to be eligible to transfer are already being implemented. Electronic versions of these would become the source of program information for the Automated Transfer Program Guide. An automated transfer program guide would allow students to enter the courses they have taken at a community college, and then receive an immediate response about which of those courses will transfer to a particular program at a specific university. The guide would also make recommendations about what additional courses students should complete at a community college. Additionally, the automated transfer program guide could be used for other functions, such as electronic transmission of transcripts. (TGO)
