Critical Condition: Prescriptions for Improving Transfer Pathways in the Health Professions
Reddy, Vikash; Flores Morales, Josefina
Campaign for College Opportunity
Over the past year, the COVID-19 global pandemic has highlighted the critical role that health professionals play in our society. This report looks closely at ADT [Associate Degree for Transfer] awards in health fields and discusses practices and challenges relayed by administrators at campuses with high rates of ADT conferral and acceptance in health fields. In particular, the California Community Colleges are awarding an increasing number of ADTs in fields related to health professions each year. However, ADTs in health-related fields are still limited, and there is wide variability in how ADTs are implemented among community college campuses that are offering them. ADTs streamline the transfer process, but navigating the pathway from a community college to a four-year degree in a health or related field is still a complex endeavor for students. The development of ADT pathways requires close communication between the California Community Colleges and the California State University systems.
