SB 1440 Update What is SB 1440? A Degree with a Guarantee C-ID’s and TMC’s Finalized Transfer Model Curriculum Approved Associate Degrees for Transfer The Goal MPC Transfer Degrees for Fall 2013 The future
The Student Transfer Achievement Reform Act 66746. (a) Commencing with the fall term of the 2011–12 academic year, a student who earns an associate degree for transfer granted pursuant to subdivision (b) shall be deemed eligible for transfer into a California State University baccalaureate program when the student meets both of the following requirements: (1) Completion of 60 semester units or 90 quarter units that are eligible for transfer to the California State University, including both of the following: (A) The Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) or the California State University General Education-Breadth Requirements. (B) A minimum of 18 semester units or 27 quarter units in a major or area of emphasis, as determined by the community college district. (2) Obtainment of a minimum grade point average of 2.0.
No Additional Requirements A community college district shall not impose any requirements in addition to the requirements of this section, including any local college or district requirements, for a student to be eligible for the associate degree for transfer and subsequent admission to the California State University pursuant to Section 66747.
SB 1440 Implementation Lots of hard work, negotiation, compromise, patience and goodwill. SB1440 Implementation and Oversight Committee Staff from CSUCO and CCCCO The Intersegmental Curriculum Workgroup The Intersegmental Marketing Workgroup The Counseling Resources Workgroup The Early Student Identification Workgroup Faculty from Community Colleges and CSU
The guarantee itself The guarantee itself means that students who earn an AA-T or AS-T degree and meet the CSU minimum eligibility requirements are guaranteed admission to a CSU, but not necessarily to a particular campus or major.
With the AA-T or AS-T degree, students may be given a GPA bump when applying to an impacted campus outside your local area or an impacted major that is deemed similar.
Priority Admission for the Transfer Associates Degrees CSU Campus Admissions Impaction Status Similar Degree Local Applicant* Similar Degree Non-Local Applicant No Impaction Priority Admission Min. 2.0 GPA (Ed. Code 66745) Campus Impacted Priority Admission Min. 2.0 GPA (Ed. Code 66745) Supplementary GPA Requirement Additional.20 GPA Point Program Impacted (Any CA Student) Supplementary GPA Requirement Additional.10 GPA Point (20 seats or more) Campus & Program Impacted (Any CA Student) Supplementary GPA Requirement Additional.10 GPA Point (20 seats or more)
In addition, once at the CSU, if a student is admitted and enrolled in a designated similar degree program they have the opportunity to complete their bachelor’s degree with as little as 60 semester units or 90 quarter units of coursework.
To pursue this special degree rather than a traditional AA or AS degree, students should meet with a counselor to develop an education plan that puts you on the path toward the AA-T or AS-T degree.
High School Students Most importantly, don’t neglect your class work: Take college-track courses all through high school Read and write often for school and for pleasure Take an English class in your junior or senior year that concentrates on critical reading and writing Take four years of math while in high school, including Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 with efforts to achieve at least a “B” grade In your junior and senior year, take the Early Assessment Program test to find out if you are on track to be ready for college
SB 1415 Common Course Numbering System C-ID (Course Identification Numbering System) http://www.c-id.net/ Course Descriptors
Approved Course Descriptor General Course Description Minimum units Prerequisites/Advisories Content Objectives Methods of Evaluation Recommended Textbooks
352 approved course descriptors and 41 draft descriptors MPC has submitted 39 course descriptors Curriculum Advisory Committee has approved 140 additional courses for submission
Transfer Model Curriculum (TMC) Process In response to SB 1440, the Academic Senates for California Community Colleges and California State University decided to develop a faculty-led, state-wide, concerted effort to identify the course content for new associate degrees for transfer… The C-ID infrastructure is being used to develop and vet the transfer model curriculum (TMC) in each of the most common transfer majors.
