University and Community College Systems of Nevada Report on Articulation and Transfer.
Nevada Univ. and Community Coll. System, Reno. Office of the Chancellor.
This document reports on articulation and transfer in the University and Community College System of Nevada (UCCSN). In 1996, the Board of Regents of UCCSN established guidelines for facilitating transfer students in the transfer process and encouraging completion of an associate's degree. The policy states: (1) that all campuses will enact institution-to-institution agreements that provide completion of an associate's degree; (2) all students who have attained an associate's degree will receive admission at junior status; (3) associate's degree attainment automatically fulfills all University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) and University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) general education requirements; (4) reverse transfer agreements will be made if lower-division courses required by the major are not offered by the community college; and (5) transfer students will be able to complete bachelor's degrees in the same time as native UNR or UNLV students. This report presents data since initiation of these guidelines. Findings from fall of 1997 data show that a significant percentage of undergraduates at Nevada universities previously completed coursework at Nevada community colleges. Approximately 55% of seniors at UNR have transfer credit, and 44% of seniors at UNLV have transfer credit. This document also discusses major-to-major contracts being written between institutions, specifically curricular changes in communication, models that work, course levels, and transfer GPA. (CJW)
