A Descriptive Study of the Associate in Science and Associate in Applied Science Degree General Education Modules for Articulation and Transfer in Maryland and Florida.
Goff, Donald Gary
The purpose of this paper is to compare and contrast the higher education articulation and transfer policies and processes between the states of Florida and Maryland. The paper 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). 3.87% of the total Florida population is enrolled in higher education. Compared to the percentage of students in higher education in all states, Florida received a D+ rating. 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 AA 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, and a B- for retention. Maryland received a D for affordability. Maryland aims to develop a 2+2 strategy for transfer.
