Transfer in Virginia--An Update. Transfer Connection, 1998.
Virginia State Dept. of Community Colleges, Richmond.; Virginia State Council of Higher Education, Richmond.
This annual publication presents articles that describe a sample of exemplary transfer practices at Virginia's colleges and universities. The articles are designed to increase understanding of how institutions communicate information and facilitate transfer between two-year and four-year institutions. An overview, "Transfer in Virginia- An Update," discusses several very useful tools available to assist students in making informed course selections while they are attending the community colleges and Richard Bland College, and notes that many four-year colleges and universities now offer guaranteed admissions to students who earn a transfer-oriented degree. The first article examines "Web sites as Sources of Transfer Information.""Transferability of the General Studies Degree" is an article that discusses a degree commonly offered by community colleges for students who come to college with credits accumulated from other colleges or through experience. Not all of these degrees are eligible for transfer, but the article lists the colleges that offer transfer-eligible general studies degrees. The last article of this newsletter, "Examples of Exemplary Programs," highlights colleges and universities throughout Virginia that have exemplary programs facilitating transfer between two- and four-year institutions. Included at the end of the newsletter is a list of Virginia's Chief Transfer Officers (1998-99). (VWC)
