Effective Transfer and Articulation Agreements to Increase College Success (session #246)
States and postsecondary systems have struggled with the challenge of negotiating transfer and articulation agreements between postsecondary institutions and systems to ensure that students who seek to enroll at a new college do not lose college credits that they have earned at institutions in which they have previously enrolled. Poor transfer systems cost students and states significant resources and negatively impact college attainment rates. This session will feature the latest research conducted by the Western Interstate Commission on Higher Education (WICHE) on how states can build stronger and more effective systems for facilitating the successful transfer of students into state postsecondary institutions.
