Where There's a Web, There's a Way: Statewide Approaches to Promoting Community College Student Transfer
de la Torre, Daniel, Jr.
Journal of College Admission, n194 p6-11 Win 2007
Red states, blue states. Maybe in politics there are differences, but when it comes to progressive transfer policies, the color-line division disappears. From the Northeast to the mid-Atlantic states to the Florida peninsula, across the Great Plains to the Southwest and on to California, state public higher education systems have made, and continue to make, great strides in recognizing the value of community college education. More importantly, they are taking leading roles in demonstrating how to promote access to higher education. One of the most compelling examples of this is seen in the development of transfer and articulation systems that facilitate the transition of community college students into public four-year institutions. Thanks to the Internet, the most exciting and effective way to see this system in action is through the array of Web-based resources dedicated to the transfer process. This article describes a survey of state-supported Web resources that answer common transfer questions.
