The Past
CAN IMPAC LDTP What happened?

Accountability Sustainability CAN – no “quality control” IMPAC – no measurable outcomes LDTP
Not intersegmental Mega-descriptors Work-around – not even close to identifying true “transfer pattern”

The Present
C-ID SB 1440 TMCs AA-T/AS-T

A system to replace and expand on CAN a supra-numbering system a response to mandates & needs  a published set of course descriptors


 

A database of course descriptors Intersegmental SB 1440

 Faculty-driven  Implementing

Identify the essential, common components of common transfer courses  Enough details to serve as the basis for articulation – universities can opt to accept all courses (articulate) that align with a descriptor  Inform course updates

Permit identification of comparable courses  Identify required courses in TMCs CCC-CCC articulation/reciprocity


called for in SB 1440

Associate Degree for Transfer Requirements:
 A student must complete 60 semester units or 90 quarter units that are eligible for transfer to the CSU that consist of  IGETC or CSU GE Breadth  a major or area of emphasis of at least 18 units, as defined by the CCC  No additional local graduation requirements may be required  Minimum GPA of 2.0

 Appropriate courses for an
associate degree  Preparation for transfer  “Double-counting” encouraged  60 units total including GE

Common “core” is typically 6 units Additional courses selected from list (s) Total 18 units (minimum) Some courses may be in related fields

934 local degrees approved as of September 24, 2013 25 TMCs finalized and active; four more in preparation (Ag, Biology, Chemistry, Econ) “Model Curriculum” for nursing engineering

The Future
Discipline faculty needed to review C-ID course submissions “Backlog” must be addressed

Various disciplines in progress IGETC for STEM to assist “highly sequenced” STEM majors SB 440 – new mandates

SB 1440
• May 11, 2012 Reforming the State's Transfer Process: A Progress Report on Senate Bill SB 1440 • LAO Recommendations:
▫ Statutorily endorse the TMC approach ▫ Clarify in statute that community colleges are expected to create an associate degree for transfer in every major they offer that has an approved TMC

LAO Recommendations (continued)
• Clarify in statute its expectation that—with limited exceptions—CSU campuses accept TMC–aligned associate degrees for transfer in each of the CSU degree options within a given major. • Begin to identify next steps if the segments fall short of meeting the above goals.

SB 440 (Padilla, 2013)
• Initially - included all elements of the LAO recommendations. • Now – mandates for CCCs, but not for CSU. • ADT = Associate Degree for Transfer • AOE = Area of Emphasis
▫ Like a major, but broader.

SB 440 (Padilla, 2013)
• After the start of 2013-2014:
▫ Every CCC shall create an ADT in every major/AOE for which there is a TMC within 18 months of the approval of the TMC.

• Before the start of 2015-2016:
▫ Every CCC shall create an ADT in every major/AOE for which there is a TMC finalized prior to start of 2013-2014 academic year. ▫ Two TMCs in AOEs will be developed.

SB 440 (Padilla, 2013)
• Before the start of 2016-2017:
▫ At least two more TMCs in AOEs will be developed.

• Issues?
▫ What is an AOE? ▫ Potential CCC response? ▫ BoG goal implementation VS SB 440 mandates – is there any flexibility?

The Future (continued)
• Distance Education • Basic Skills • Career Technical Education

Thank you!

AA-T and AS-T Requirements
1.“the CSU shall guarantee admission with junior status” 2.“. . . does not guarantee admission for specific majors or campuses” 3.“priority admission ---to local CSU campus and to a program or major that is similar . . . as determined by the CSU campus”

AA-T and AS-T Requirements
“The CSU may require a student transferring pursuant to this article to take additional courses at the CSU so long as the student is not required to take any more than 60 additional semester units or 90 quarter units at the CSU for majors requiring 120 semester units or 180 quarter units.”

AA-T and AS-T Requirements
“The CSU shall not require students . . . to repeat courses that are similar to those taken at the CC that counted toward the associate degree for transfer.”
