    Progress to Date

    • “Priority admission” defined for students enrolling at their local CSU or in a CSU major deemed “similar”

    • Process implemented to identify students intending to transfer with a degree in Fall 2012

    • Joint Web site created for staff and faculty:

    • Requirement that degrees be available to students beginning in the Fall 2011 term met

    Curricular side of sb 1440
    Curricular Side of SB 1440

    • Work began between CSU and CCC Academic Senate prior to the bill’s signing

    • Curricular elements dealt with at the 1440 Intersegmental Curriculum Workgroup (ICW)

    • Representatives from CSU and CCC Academic Senates and COs, 1 CCC CIO

    Tmc a statewide solution
    TMC – A Statewide Solution

    • While the legislation does not call for a statewide approach, the faculty from the two segments believed this would make more sense.

    • Ultimate goal? One degree per major that prepares students for ANY CSU with that major.

    What s a tmc transfer model curriculum
    What’s a TMC (Transfer Model Curriculum)?

    • Developed & vetted intersegmentally (CCC and CSU)

    • Built on the C-ID system

    • Represents faculty consensus

    • Serves as a blueprint to guide local associate degree for transfer (AA-T or AS-T) development

    • Provides for some uniformity as well as local options

      • “Core” requirements

      • Others are options for your local degree

      • Faculty can narrow the course options or pass choices on to students.

    • Some TMCs are narrow and more prescriptive; others are more open. It depends on the discipline.

    • What if you don’t presently offer a required core course?

      • It must be developed

    Local roles in degree development process
    Local Roles in Degree Development Process

    • Discipline Faculty: Develop an AA-T or AS-T in a major aligned with TMC; select the best options from TMC.

    • Curriculum Committee: Facilitates the local approval process through Board of Trustees.

    • Articulation Officer: Submits courses for C-ID approval and assists departments with articulation questions and ASSIST documentation.

    • Counselors: Provide input on major and GE unit requirements and facilitate communication of new degree requirements and benefits to students.

    • Administrators: Ensure compliance with SB 1440 and Program and Course Approval Handbook (PCAH); oversee process of submitting proposal to CCC Chancellor’s Office
