Tackling Transfer Problems: The Interstate Passport and Benefits for Service Member/Veteran Students
Track: Higher Education Track (Sponsored by The College Board)
This session will introduce Interstate Passport® and explain how it makes transferring more efficient for both students and their colleges/universities. Interstate Passport is a new and innovative program that facilitates block transfer of lower-division general education attainment based on learning outcomes, not specific course-to-course articulation. In collaboration with Air University, air men and women, veterans, and their families can earn a Passport making the transfer experience less complicated and a more efficient process.

Transferring can be problematic for students, especially for service members, veterans, and their dependents who, like other "non-traditional" students, complete coursework at multiple institutions over an extended period of time. The challenge of improving the transfer process has haunted American institutions for a long time. Despite a variety of strategies, transferring is seldom smooth nor seamless. The result is that students lose credits, require longer time for degree completion, and pay more than students who don't transfer.
