Transfer Pathways

Do you teach in one of the 12 disciplines below?  Do your courses support a major in one of those disciplines?  Do you advise students?  Do you make transfer happen?  Are you a student interested in one of these programs?  Then we need YOUR voice!

This semester twelve teams have been meeting with the goal of developing a Transfer Pathway that would assist students in the transfer from one of our Minnesota State Colleges to a Minnesota State Universities with the designated baccalaureate degree.  Students utilizing a Transfer Pathway would enter as a junior and be able to complete their baccalaureate degree in 60 credits – without losing time and money or generating excess credits.

Your colleagues need your help!  Teams of faculty, staff, administrators, and students have been developing Transfer Pathways in the following areas:  Chemistry, Communication, Computer Science, Criminal Justice/Police, Early Childhood Education, Economics, Elementary Education, Kinesiology & Exercise Science, Mathematics, Nursing, Social Work, and Sociology.  The attachment is a roster of team members by institution.  NOW is the time for you to provide feedback on the proposed pathways to the Transfer Pathways Teams (TPTs) before they finalize the pathways in January – February, 2017.

Whose feedback is needed?

Faculty in the above disciplines and in related disciplines

All Registrars

How can you provide feedback?

The Discipline Stakeholders Meetings will occur November 14 – 17 with each Transfer Pathway hosting a 3 hour session.  You can attend either in person or remotely.   The proposed pathways will available by November 11 here.  If you are unable to attend, you will be able to review the recording of the meeting which will be available on the same site.  We are also providing an opportunity to provide feedback via a survey available here November 19 – December 9.
