Governance of Articulation and Transfer in Maryland and Florida.
Goff, Donald Gary
This paper compares and contrasts the higher education articulation and transfer policies and processes between the states of Florida and Maryland. The author examines how the state governance structures impact articulation and transfer. Both states have instituted statewide policies meant to implement high levels of transfer between two-year and four-year institutions. The paper compares the results of different policies and programs, and attempts to make projections regarding future success for articulation and transfer within the two states. The State of Florida ranks fourth in the nation in population (15,111,244). Almost 4% of the total Florida population is enrolled in higher education. Compared to the national percentage of students in higher education, Florida received a D+ rating. In addition, Florida received a B+ rating for completion rates, and a D for affordability factors. Florida has a 2+2 system of transfer, which means that students who earn an associate's degree at a community college must be accepted into a Florida college or university. Maryland ranks 19th in the nation for population (5,171,643), with 4.13% of the population enrolled in higher education programs. Maryland received an A for percentage of students in higher education, a B- for retention, and a D for affordability. Maryland officials intend to develop a 2+2 strategy for transfer.
