ITEM 130-101-R0306   Transfer Goals for the Montana University System


THAT:  The Board of Regents of Higher Education approves the attached goals for transferability of credits in the Montana University System.


EXPLANATION:   At the November 2005 Board of Regents' meeting, the members of the Academic and Student Affairs Committee discussed the next steps in the "transferability of credits" arena.  Before the Board identified next steps, however, it was decided that the Regents should adopt goals that describe what they hope to accomplish with the transfer issue.  The Chief Academic Officers were asked to develop some goals, and present them to the Board of Regents at the March 2006 meeting.


The attached goals are the result of that effort.
