The trouble with transfer reforms

Streamlining transfers between community colleges and four-year universities makes sense, but transfer reforms won’t help more students earn bachelor’s degrees. States with streamlined articulation policies don’t have higher transfer rates, higher bachelor’s degree completion rates, shorter time-to-degree and/or fewer “wasted” credits.

    But do they have less student debt?

  2. California recently passed a new law to streamline transferring… the goal is to create 2-year, 60 unit AA degrees that cover the lower division GE requirements and the lower division requirements for a specific major… eg, an AA in Physics for Transfer, or an AA for Math for Transfer. According to the new state law, the California State Universities are supposed to develop a way for all such transfers to graduate with only 60 more units.
