61440 Oct 20104/12/2017Progress to Date“Priority admission” defined for students enrolling at their local CSU or in a CSU major deemed “similar”Process implemented to identify students intending to transfer with a degree in Fall 2012Joint Web site created for staff and faculty:Requirement that degrees be available to students beginning in the Fall 2011 term metPaul will elaborate more on the Marketing efforts in a few minutes.
7Curricular Side of SB 1440Work began between CSU and CCC Academic Senate prior to the bill’s signingCurricular elements dealt with at the 1440 Intersegmental Curriculum Workgroup (ICW)Representatives from CSU and CCC Academic Senates and COs, 1 CCC CIO
8TMC – A Statewide Solution While the legislation does not call for a statewide approach, the faculty from the two segments believed this would make more sense.Ultimate goal? One degree per major that prepares students for ANY CSU with that major.
9What’s a TMC (Transfer Model Curriculum)? Developed & vetted intersegmentally (CCC and CSU)Built on the C-ID systemRepresents faculty consensusServes as a blueprint to guide local associate degree for transfer (AA-T or AS-T) developmentProvides for some uniformity as well as local options“Core” requirementsOthers are options for your local degreeFaculty can narrow the course options or pass choices on to students.Some TMCs are narrow and more prescriptive; others are more open. It depends on the discipline.What if you don’t presently offer a required core course?It must be developed

11Transfer Model Curriculum How Do Degrees Get Developed?AA-T or AS-T Developed by Colleges, Approved by CCC Chancellor’s OfficeTransfer Model CurriculumC-IDSupported the Leadership of the Academic Senate to:Provide a statewide solution using Transfer Model Curriculum (TMC)Leverage C-ID numbering to simplify identification of comparable coursesStandardize degree namingIdentify twenty-five popular majors
12Local Roles in Degree Development Process Discipline Faculty: Develop an AA-T or AS-T in a major aligned with TMC; select the best options from TMC.Curriculum Committee: Facilitates the local approval process through Board of Trustees.Articulation Officer: Submits courses for C-ID approval and assists departments with articulation questions and ASSIST documentation.Counselors: Provide input on major and GE unit requirements and facilitate communication of new degree requirements and benefits to students.Administrators: Ensure compliance with SB 1440 and Program and Course Approval Handbook (PCAH); oversee process of submitting proposal to CCC Chancellor’s Office

18CSU Goals for AA-T/AS-T Acceptance All CSU campuses will have at least one degree designated as “similar” in each TMC major offered by the end of the Spring 2012 term

The numbers should continue to increase as CSU faculty have more time for additional review and solutioning.
