Accelerate Review of ADT Modifications

Resolution Number: 
Consultation with the Chancellor's Office

Whereas, Associate Degrees for Transfer (ADTs) require review by the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office to ensure compliance with the designed Transfer Model Curriculum (TMC) for each degree; and

Whereas, Colleges should be able to make minor modifications to an ADT that do not deviate from the relevant TMC and do not significantly alter the degree, such as the addition of courses, the removal of courses, and other course-related modifications, without undue scrutiny by the Chancellor’s Office;

Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges encourage the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office to establish a process for fast- tracking the approval of Associate Degrees for Transfer that have been minimally modified in a manner that is clearly consistent with the Transfer Model Curriculum upon which they are based.
