5 What Does Ohio Need to Stay Competitive in the 21 st Century More graduates with higher education degrees More timely degree completion More efficient completion (cost) Less repeat of learning/receive credit for what you have completed

6 Challenges Providing incentives to retain students to degree completion Accurately reflect and record work completed by students that meets established degree requirements Tracking students mobility as they transfer Developing systems at both sending and receiving colleges and universities to facilitate ease of information exchange and degree award

7 Currently in Place… Bilateral articulation since the early 1990’s Statewide articulation since mid-1990’s Statewide articulation broadened since 2004 OAN/TAGS and CTAN/CTAGS HEI student tracking

8 Next Step…Reverse Transfer Who does it apply to? Tri-C students who have completed at least 20 credit hours, have at least a 2.00 GPA, and have transferred to another institution How does it work? Transfer remaining/applicable baccalaureate courses taken at their current institution(s) back to Tri-C (using current State of Ohio Transfer Policy guidelines), and graduate students that meet all the graduation requirements at Tri-C with an Associate Degree

9 Tri-C Pilot Project - 2009 Worked with Cleveland State University CSU assisted in identifying Tri-C transfer students Notification was sent out by CSU advising the students of the opportunity to have coursework reviewed/earn an Associate Degree from Tri-C Students signed a waiver allowing their transcript to be sent to Tri-C for evaluation

10 Pilot continued… Transcripts sent to Tri-C at no charge to student Transcripts were evaluated through degree audit system (DARS) Notification was sent from Tri-C to students

11 Results for CSU 107 Students requested an audit 39 Students met degree requirements 53 Total degrees (some students received both AA & AS) awarded 18 Students were missing one requirement

12 Next…Baldwin Wallace 49 Students requested an audit 37 Students met degree requirements 40 Total degrees (some students received both AA & AS) awarded 3 Students were granted degrees the following term


14 Current Reverse Transfer Partners Baldwin Wallace University Cleveland State University Tiffin College Franklin University Kent State University The University of Akron Ursuline College Central State University

15 Benefits for Students Students earned a degree Students will be employable at a higher level earlier helping to offset educational expenses as they pursue advanced degrees Student earn higher wages Students are motivated to move forward and continue education Increase the number of degree holders in the state and region

16 Benefits for Community Colleges Improve graduation rates Increase number of degrees awarded Acknowledge the transfer population as a significant and viable path toward completion Improve partnerships with four-year institutions Increase the alumni base Support economic growth of the region

17 Benefits for Universities Improves regional pipeline to the 4-year degree Demonstrates a cooperative regional partnership in higher education for student success and degree attainment Support economic growth of the region

18 Benefits for the Region Increased number of regional degree holders Lower rate of unemployment/underemployment and improve per capita income Greater ability to attract business and industry to area Increase in civic and charitable activities
