News & Updates
This month's newsletter continues that FAQ format and addresses two important questions: Is each TAP pathway to a major a separate degree, or is there one degree with separate pathways? What does it mean when a degree program is labeled "TAP compliant"?
May 2015 Newsletter

This month, we address questions frequently asked about TAP, its implementation, and its long term consequences for Connecticut State Colleges and University faculty, staff, and students.
April 2, 2015 Newsletter
March 5, 2015
The following update is the first of a series of newsletters on the development and implementation of CSCU's Transfer and Articulation Policy (TAP). After a brief description of TAP, it turns to two areas of concern, (1) TAP’s compliance with NEASC standards and (2) TAP’s possible impact on the community colleges and their associate-degree programs.

Transfer and Articulation PolicyConnecticut families deserve a system of public higher education whose primary purpose is to produce graduates who form an engaged and well-informed citizenry, as well as a robust and appropriately educated workforce. To achieve this purpose, we must demonstrate that we provide a quality education. At the same time, we must create a clearly marked pathway from admission to graduation for all students by clarifying and streamlining the degree-program structures and transfer processes in our state colleges and universities to help students complete their post-secondary certifications and degrees as efficiently as possible.

Policy Statement on Associate DegreesAll degrees granted by the BOR to students will clearly identify the purpose or purposes they serve. In most cases, A.A. and A.S. degrees designed for transfer to CSCU institutions will follow Transfer and Articulation Policy (TAP) guidelines and processes to become CSCU Pathway Transfer A. A. and A.S. Degree: [Discipline Name] Studies within the CSCU system.
View Policy (pdf)
Name & Local Status of Pathway Transfer DegreesThe Transfer and Articulation Policy degree will be an umbrella degree with designations for each specific pathway and will be labeled by discipline as, CSCU Pathway Transfer A.A. / A.S. Degree: [Discipline] Studies. These pathways will not be advising options, but fully spelled-out degrees.
