Reimagining Transfer for Student Success

The National Task Force on the Transfer and Award of Credit offers recommendations and best practices on how to modify existing transfer and award of credit practices to best support student success.

AACRAO is excited to share the final report from the National Task Force on the Transfer and Award of Credit, convened in March 2020 by the American Council on Education (ACE), with the aim of improving transfer and award of credit practices in an effort to spur student success and reduce the cost and time to complete a degree.

This report offers six concrete recommendations that will enable higher education leaders to carry out more seamless and efficient transfer and award of credit on their campuses; and comes at a time when college students are becoming more mobile, moving in and out as well as through multiple colleges and universities and other learning environments, such as military service or the workforce.
