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:
www.sb1440.org
 Requirement that degrees be available to students
beginning in the Fall 2011 term met
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
• 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)?
•
•
•
•
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
