OnlineGroup 2-Articulation Agreement
Audience:The people most likely to benefit from our information are all incoming transfer students who wish to apply earned Major credits to a 4-year degree. This information could be found in a universities admission office or website and may be provided by department advisors.
Problem or Opportunity:Our main issue is the availability of articulation agreements between universities. Students who attend a 2-year school who wish to transfer to a 4-year college may or may not have certain credits applied to their degree. We believe there is a credit need for this information because transfer students can make up a large percentage of a student body. We believe that this information does exist, though not easily accessible by students. The lack of this information could impact a student’s decision to attend certain university programs. Without this information, a student may find themselves wasting valuable time and money on courses they did not need to take or had already received credit for.
Research Strategies:Our topic may contain primary information in the form of interviews conducted with students and administration members. We may also find information on university websites, Texas State Board of Education website, or actual articulation agreement documents. Magazines or other periodicals may also be reviewed.
Purpose of Proposal:The purpose of this proposal is to investigate what information transfer students need about course acceptance using Articulation Agreements. Students who have access to these agreements may be able to plan their college career more efficiently, saving valuable time and money.
- How can we make the articulation agreements available to all students?
- Who is in charge of designing articulation agreements, and how do they implement them.
- What decisions are considered in the acceptance of credits from other universities?
- Once a student has access to the agreements, how could they use the information?
