ICC Articulation Committee
Fall 2003 Meeting Minutes
The group talked with Bill Ruiz about PeopleSoft File Uploads. Bill stated
that when we are ready to upload ARTSYS to PeopleSoft on a nightly basis we
could let him know. He can help us make it happen.
We all need to take care of updating ARTSYS. There are many courses to be
evaluated and many courses still listed as "to be determined."
AAT information. UMCP only had six students. The transcripts from most
community colleges are not indicating the AAT degree. There is nothing on
the electronic application for students to self-indicate AAT. Some students
had the AAT degree on transcript but did not have all of the courses from
the community college AAT criteria. Needs to be accountability of AAT
coursework. We discussed questions about automatic completion of
lower-level general education with the AAT. We can still require AAT grads
to take 10-16 credits of general education on our campuses. We discussed
community college general education courses. We do need to do some close
checking to verify AAT degree. It was recommended that the USM should take
a look at the AAT's. How many students are in the pipeline at the community
college? It was stated that there was the potential for 250 AAT grads for
next fall. It was also recommended that we invite Michael Kiphart to a
Seth: Provided an update on ARTSYS "hits." Gave us "ENGL" information that
we need to update and return to him. The institutions, which offer Nursing,
need to add a footnote for non-nursing courses. They should e-mail the
language of the footnote to Seth. Students should start Nursing Programs in
2004 and transfer to four-years in 2006.
Discussion about on-line courses. Should we limit the number of on-line
courses in the future? No decisions reached.
Question about CLEP and AP. If the score is below our minimum, but the
community college accepts as general education, do we have to accept it?
UMCP does not, everyone else does. Further discussion in the future.
