COMPLETE COLLEGE
AMERICA
•
Oklahoma is one of 29 states accepted to participate in the Complete College America
project to help more Americans achieve their dream of a college education.
•
Complete College America (CCA) is complemented by the work of the National Governors
Association and its Complete to Compete (CtC) initiative. By virtue of Oklahoma’s
participation in the Complete College America Alliance, Oklahoma is considered to be
actively involved in both projects.
•
Oklahoma was accepted because the State has made a commitment to significantly increase
the number of students successfully completing college and closing educational attainment
gaps for traditionally underserved populations.
•
Five national foundations are providing multi-year support to CCA: the Carnegie
Corporation; the Gates Foundation; the Ford Foundation; the Kellogg Foundation; and
Lumina Foundation for Education.

Oklahoma Priorities
•Thorough review
of existing and
new research
•Make the project
our own
•Meaningful
change
•Prioritize and
accelerate
“Ultimately, what is
proposed under the
Oklahoma action plan is an
acceleration of efforts to
make significant
improvements to two critical
segments of the educational
pipeline: Restructuring
remedial and developmental
education and Development
of accelerated degree
completion options.”

5 TRACK & REWARD
PROGRESS & COMPLETION
Higher education and K-12 will work together to develop and implement
a strategy that seeks to identify students not on target to be collegeready by graduation and targets activities in the 11th and 12th grades to
reduce remediation demands in the transition from high school to
college.
Every Oklahoma institution will implement transformational models of
remedial placement and support through a statewide phased
implementation and refinement process.
Develop and implement a "Program Equivalent Project" that bridges
Career Tech credit hour completion to certificate and A.A.S. degree
completion in the community colleges.
Further expand and develop Reach Higher as a degree and certificate
completion effort that involves the entire system of postsecondary
education.
Reform Oklahoma’s successful Brain Gain Performance Funding Program
to provide metrics and accountability for measuring state and campus
progress toward completion goals.

The Course Equivalency Project
OKLAHOMA’S TRANSFER AND
ARTICULATION INITIATIVE
Course Equivalency Project
 Selected program level and course-to-course transfer
agreements were in place from early to mid-1980’s
 In 1996, the State Regents approved Facilitating
Student Transfer: A Comprehensive Action Plan to
improve student transfer. This plan included four
parts:




creating working faculty transfer curriculum committees;
development of a systemwide electronic course transfer guide;
emphasizing academic advising; and
organizing an evaluation process to monitor transfer students’
success.
Course Equivalency Project
 CEP operates on an annual cycle.
 In spring, the Council on Instruction (COI) determines the 8


15 faculty committees that will meet in the fall.
Presidents nominate faculty during the summer.
Each fall, between 200 & 300 faculty members meet by
discipline to update common course descriptions and
establish new course equivalencies.
Chief academic officers update course information in the fall
and spring and the COI approves the course
recommendations.
The State Regents approve the CEP matrices for upcoming
year and it is distributed to institutions along with an update
to the OSRHE website.
www.OKCourseTransfer.org.
Course Equivalency Project
 Currently, all 25 public institutions of higher
education as well as several private colleges and
universities participate in the CEP.
 It reinforces student access to the three-tiered higher
education system and helps shorten the time it takes
students to obtain a degree.
 To date, more than 8,000 courses (over 600 course
groupings) across more than 46 academic
disciplines are on the CEP.
 The CEP is a nationally recognized initiative and
other states contact OSRHE for guidance when
developing their own statewide course articulation
systems.

the State System.
2011-12 CEP Activities
 The 2011-12 CEP matrices include 8,076
individual courses from 46 disciplines
 Fall 2011 meeting on the UCO campus included nine
disciplines: Biological Sciences, Computer
Science, Mathematics, English, Psychology,
Criminal Justice, Philosophy, Engineering,
and Nutrition.
 All of public institutions participate with Bacone,
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma Christian, Oral
Roberts, and Tulsa being regular private
institution participants.
2011-12 CEP Activities
 Continuing efforts to work with the Nursing and
Allied Health fields to do articulation work have
led to several common course descriptions.
 The Technical Crosswalk will debut this year for
students taking applied technical courses that lead to
an Associate of Applied Science degree.
 The CEP discipline groups have become critical links
to reform discussions that are part of the
Oklahoma Completion Agenda.
