This bill requires each institution of higher education to enter into a collective Statewide reverse transfer agreement. Under the agreement, a student enrolled in a four-year institution of higher education who has a cumulative total of 66 credits earned between a county college and the four-year institution may be awarded an associate degree by the county college. The reverse transfer agreement will address the following issues: (1) the effective communication between the county college and the four-year institution on student transcripts and course equivalencies; (2) the process by which a student is notified of potential eligibility, and by which the four-year institution obtains the consent of the student for release of his transcript to the county college; (3) procedures for advising students on the courses that a student needs to complete to attain an associate degree; (4) policies and procedures for the annual review and update of the agreement; and (5) policies and procedures for the collection of data by the secretary to ensure that all institutions are in compliance with the bill's provisions. The policies and procedures established in the collective Statewide reverse transfer agreement will be fully operational by September 1, 2018. This bill implements a recommendation of the College Affordability Study Commission included in its September 2016 final report.
