Student Services Transformation Updates

Transfer Credit

Evaluating coursework completed at institutions outside of UB and determining how previously earned credits may transfer and be applied to a UB degree requirement.

Current Status

The Transfer Credit team has been working on converting student transfer course data.  This also includes the conversion of alternative/exam credits, and AP articulation rules.  We have also been working with the Advising and Admissions module teams to get the admission's auto-decision process set up.  This includes the ability to provide a Transfer Summary Report that will be sent to accepted transfer applicants.

Beginning with the fall 2011 transfer applicants, staff will be able to use the Transfer Credit Report to view transfer credit and what it articulates to.  Previously, this was a part of the DARS report but it will now be its own report.  The look and feel of the report will differ slightly from what advisors and staff may be used to, but contains all relevant information similar to the old reports.
