A Competency Based Approach to Developing Articulation Agreements in Computing

  • Projected enrollment in Pennsylvania high schools is expected to continue to decline over the next 10 to 15 years. Additionally, current economic and budget constraints are encouraging students to consider community colleges as the beginning of their baccalaureate degree programs. This increases the pressure on four-year colleges and universities to increase their recruiting efforts to attract community college transfer students. Articulation agreements are the traditional mechanism used to define and formalize the transfer process. In this paper we discuss a process for creating articulation agreements that expands the scope of programs transferring into a four-year degree. In particular we will discuss the effort to recruit students into a four-year Information Assurance and Security program. We will discuss the development of the methodology, the process currently used by the college for developing agreements, and the results of the effort.
