The Academic Program Articulation Steering Committee (APASC) is the central committee which:

(1) receives all of the curriculum and transfer support changes from the various committees;

(2) reviews these changes; and

(3) when appropriate, endorses these changes in the

transfer model/system.

APASC membership is comprised of four university vice provosts (or their designees) and an ABOR staff member and four community college chief academic officers (or their designees) and one at-large member.
