Transfer in Virginia--an Update. Transfer Connection, 1996.
Virginia State Dept. of Community Colleges, Richmond.
The "State Policy on Transfer", adopted in 1991, continues to be highly effective in helping students transfer from two-year to four-year institutions. In addition, the policy has promoted cooperation between institutions, most of which have progressed beyond questions of policy compliance to practices that facilitate equitable admission and ensure that transfer students will complete their baccalaureate degree. This document presents articles on topics that are designed to increase the understanding of how credits transfer, how transfer guides can be used to facilitate transfer, and how articulation agreements are developed. Articles include: (1) When is a Credit not a Credit? (2) Transfer Guides--Road Maps for Transfer Planning; (3) Guidelines for Developing Articulation Agreements between Community Colleges and Four-Year Institutions; (4) High School--Community College--Four-Year College Examples of Articulated Programs through Tech Prep; and (5) Opportunities for Advanced Standing for High School Students. Some notable benefits of articulation agreements listed include elimination of uncertainty in the acceptance of credits, elimination of unnecessary duplication of course work, and reduction in the cost of a baccalaureate degree. Contains a list of Virginia's Chief Transfer Officers (1995-96). (TGO)
