AdvANCED DEGREES AND AFFILIATION AGREEMENTS

Report
WHAT IS AN ARTICULATION AGREEMENT?
• It is a binding agreement between a two year and a
four year institution.
• It defines which courses will be transferable and what
letter grades must be earned for transfer.
• It ensures that the student understands which
courses are aligned with their intended four year
degree so they don’t take classes that will not satisfy
their bachelor degree requirements.
WHAT ELSE SHOULD BE INCLUDED IN AN
ARTICULATION AGREEMENT?
• Information to ensure appropriate advisement of
students by faculty at both the 2yr and 4 yr institution
• Coordination and review of curriculum by faculty and
advisors at both institutions & at statewide meetings
• Evaluation of the outcomes of the articulation
program and continuous improvement (report to
Council of Presidents)
ARTICLES OF ARTICULATION
Bergen Community College and Binghamton University
entered into an articulation agreement and included
the following information in the articles of articulation:
• Application process and fees
• Transfer criteria
• Admissions process
• Maximum number of transferable college credits
ARTICLES OF ARTICULATION
• Maximum number of transferable credits by
examination or nontraditional means
• Equivalency of courses, even when BCC awards 3
credits and Binghamton awards 4 credits for the same
course
• Credits awarded through Advance Placement
• General Education requirements
• Academic advising and route to graduation
ARTICLES OF ARTICULATION
• Student Handbook: policies and procedures for the
institution and the degree program
• Notification when changes are made to courses,
programs, and policies at either institution
• Terms of re-negotiation of the agreement
• Terms for termination of the agreement
ARTICLES OF ARTICULATION
Suggested General Education Courses:
• English Composition
• Speech Communication
• Humanities: Art, Music, Theatre
• Social Sciences: Anthropology, Psychology
• Math, Science: Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Technology
• Diversity
• Sociology
WHAT IS NEW JERSEY’S CURRENT MODEL?
• The articulation between two year community colleges
and NJ public four year colleges and universities
allows transfer of academic credits earned in an A.A.
or A.S. degree to a bachelor’s degree program
• 56-64 credits will transfer (general education 45/30)
• The articulation does not guarantee admission as
many majors have a competitive admission process
• The A.A.S. degree is not covered (with one exception,
the A.A.S. in Technical Studies, NJ Pathways Leading
to a College Education)
ONE FORMER MODEL
Bergen Community College and Montclair State
College (University)
• In the early 1980s, BCC and MSC had an
articulation agreement for A.A.S. degrees in
Health Professions to transfer towards a B.S.
• Graduates would transfer ~ 68 credits and
start at the junior year, needing 128 credits
to graduate
WHAT DOES THE AGREEMENT BETWEEN KEAN
UNIVERSITY AND BERGEN CC LOOK LIKE?
• This partnership in nursing permits BCC students
with an A.A.S. degree to have advanced standing
at Kean leading to a BSN
• Up to 88 credits can be taken at Bergen
(Lyndhurst and Paramus campuses)
• The remaining 37 are taken at Kean (125
required for BSN)
• Completion program can take either 12 months
full time or 2-4 years part time
KEAN UNIVERSITY AND BERGEN COMMUNITY
• Program is set up for both current students in the
A.A.S. nursing program at Bergen and for
graduates who have their RN and wish to obtain
their BSN
• Pre licensure students need approval from the
director of the nursing program at Bergen and are
considered visiting students at Kean (not
matriculated)
KEAN UNIVERSITY AND BERGEN COMMUNITY
• These students will go through the approval
process each semester until they graduate
with an A.A.S. and then officially apply to Kean
for the RN-BS program
• Passing the NCLEX (National Council
Licensure Examination) is also required
• Admission requires a minimum 2.0 GPA and a
“C” or better for transfer of courses

for a dental hygiene program look
like between a two year and a four
year college/university?

WHAT IS THE FUTURE OF THE BSDH IN NJ?
•
An entry level BSDH program is planned with
Rutgers for 2015
•
The current degree completion program is
scheduled to continue with Rutgers
WHAT ISSUES DO WE NEED TO ADDRESS FOR
THE FUTURE?
• Will the current educational programs be
appropriate for the possible providers types that
may be developed?
• Do we need to investigate articulation agreements
with other states or can the current educational
offerings in our state(s) meet these needs?
• Do we need to create a program to educate the
ADHP or similar provider?
