Articulation and Transfer

Whereas, AB 928 (Berman, 2021) [1], the Student Transfer Achievement Reform Act of 2021 aims to further streamline and make the transfer process easier for students to navigate but does not address the crucial need for additional spaces for transfer students to the California State University or University of California [2], especially for students to transfer to institutions in or near their community college service area;

Whereas, The Academic Senate for California Community Colleges (ASCCC) has a long history of supporting transfer opportunities and streamlined processes, and has approved Transfer in the Higher Education System to be an area of focus of the ASCCC for 2021-22 [3];

Whereas, The Intersegmental Committee of Academic Senates is considering transfer to be a prioritized component of their work for 2021-22; and

Whereas, The Vision for Success goals for transfer and equity [4] are unattainable unless additional spaces for transfer students are assured;

Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges work with practitioners within and among the California Community College, the California State University, and the University of California systems to build transfer guarantees that will increase the number of spaces for community college students transferring to the California State University or the University of California, especially for students to transfer to institutions in or near their community college service area.
