Enhanced for better communication between community colleges and universities. If a community college submits a course for a direct equivalent, and does not receive it, the university will provide feedback indicating why. The feedback will be sent through ACETS staff.
AGEC courses must be E or Better at all universities. Common Courses must be E or Better at all universities with the shared major. All remaining courses completing the transfer associate degree must be E or Better at the university or universities to which the student plans to transfer.
Previously P [pass] was not permitted, even with transfer courses. Now permitted only if: o It was transferred in from a non-AGEC awarding institution; and o It was the only option available for the student; and o The AGEC awarding institution verifies that it is equivalent to a C or better.
Based on data demonstrating student success Assured admission for transfer students [Arizona residents only] o Completed AGEC, with cumulative 2.50 GPA or better. o Completed associates, with a cumulative 2.00 GPA or better. Delegated admission for transfer students o Arizona residents not meeting assured admission criteria. o All non-Arizona residents.
A majority of ATF faculty agreed a CNS not needed, confirming the strength of the CEG. Institutional responses emphasized the curricular complexities, financial costs, and faculty/staff time involved developing a CNS. Many thanks to all ATF faculty who provided invaluable feedback!
A Nutrition ATF was approved by APASC at their September meeting. Environmental/Sustainability Workgroup met in May: o Discussed if/how to incorporate related issues into ATFs. o Added two questions to the ATF agenda for discussion.
Virtual meetings are a viable option for ATF meetings. The idea of cluster meetings is being considered for Fall AAS to BAS degree pathways continue to be discussed.
