Credit Transfer: Guidelines for Student Transfer and Articulation among Missouri Colleges and Universities.
Missouri State Coordinating Board for Higher Education, Jefferson City.
These guidelines, issued by the Coordinating Board for Higher Education in the State of Missouri, are for promoting and facilitating the transfer of students between institutions of higher education within the state. They are issued according to statutory requirements. The guiding principles of this report hold that the transfer process should not be to the advantage or disadvantage to either transfer or native students, and that transfer decisions should be predictable in order to facilitate the workability of the system. The guidelines also state that any changes in the curriculum that affect transfer and articulation agreements should be implemented in a timely manner. The associate of arts degree is the statewide general studies transfer degree, structured for entry into baccalaureate degree programs. This report presents the prescribed general education curriculum and discusses program-to-program institutionally articulated degrees and transfer without a degree. It describes the need for colleges and universities to evaluate the transferability of lower-division credits beyond the associate degree requirements on a case-by-case basis. It reviews policies for admission of transfer students, changes in majors, and credit for non-traditional learning. Review procedures and the appeals process are also detailed. The report concludes with a definition of terms. (NB)
