Grant Summary

$50,000 over 12 months to Oregon Alliance for Independent Colleges and Oregon Community College Association to lay the groundwork for creating transfer pathways for students to complete liberal arts degrees through the use of general and discipline-based block transfer modules aligned with the Oregon Transfer Compass and to launch a dynamic database to convey curricular maps and pathways for prospective transfer students and their advisors to use in course selection. The project will also support a research report on the impact and opportunity for transfer stemming from the Oregon Promise program, whereby recent high school graduates get free access to community college.
