Clearing Paths to College Degrees: Transfer Policies in SREB States. A Focus Report in the Challenge to Lead Series
Creech, Joseph D.; Lord, Joan M.
Southern Regional Education Board (SREB)
This report looks at actions Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) states have taken in recent years to improve the connections between public two- and four-year colleges, and it offers suggestions on what needs to happen next. To best understand the progress in their states, policymakers and education leaders should ask about the effectiveness in their state's college transfer policies, particularly as these policies have developed in the last 10 years. This report guides these leaders in answering two key questions: (1) What are the key statewide agreements and policies that help students move from one college to another--and does my state have them? (2) How does my state know whether students are able to make smooth transfers? Appendices include: (A) Legislation and Regulation Related to Transfer in SREB States; (B) Transfer of Credit Hours; and (C) Web-Based Postsecondary Transfer Guides in SREB States. (Contains 2 figures and 1 table.)
