Transfer and Articulation in South Carolina.
South Carolina Commission on Higher Education, Columbia.
This document details regulations and procedures for transfer in public two-year and four-year institutions in South Carolina as mandated by Act 137 of 1995. This Act stipulates that the Council of College and University Presidents and the State Board shall develop better articulation of associate and baccalaureate degree programs. In compliance, the Commission established a Transfer Articulation Policy Committee. Consequently, the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education approved 74 courses for transfer from two- to four-year public institutions. The Commission has also mandated that all four-year public institutions shall issue annually a transfer guide covering items related to admission requirements, standardized examinations, maximums in course credits, course listings, articulation agreements, and others. Transfer Blocks/Statewide Agreements are also detailed, along with information on related reports and statewide documents. A quality assurance process for course work that requires a formal review is required every four years. Information on how the staff of the Commission on Higher Education shall print and distribute copies of these procedures is described. Copies of the processes and procedures are to be made available through the Internet and institutional catalogues. (JJL)
