David K. Moldoff, CEO of AcademyOne, joined a group of industry leaders Wednesday to discuss government legislation and the needs of today's contemporary student at the invitation of Committee Chairman John Kline. The Committee, tasked with reauthorizing the Higher Education Act, brought together the group to give its members the chance to examine current policies and solutions in order to continue support of innovation in the postsecondary education sector.
AcademyOne has been awarded a contract to develop and implement a Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) Website and Application/Assessment/e-Portfolio System for the fourteen Community Colleges in the State. The fully automated system, scheduled to go live in September, will help the institutions determine if a student is eligible for PLA credit and the best way to award it.
Reverse transfer is gaining momentum in higher education as a win-win degree completion solution for students, community colleges and four-year universities. It’s a practice that facilitates the award of associate degrees to community college students who transfer to four-year colleges and universities prior to graduation. During the reverse transfer process, credits they earn while pursuing a bachelor’s at the four-year school get transferred back to the community college to satisfy associate degree requirements.
Navigating college to earn a degree is a complicated task – one that proves difficult, costly and time-consuming for far too many. To increase attainment rates, a growing number of states and institutions are adopting new strategies that remove obstacles to graduation and improve student retention and persistence. One approach involves the creation and use of degree maps.
Will My Credits Transfer? It’s not just a question – it’s a tool! First launched as a feature of our nationwide portal, CollegeTransfer.Net, WMCT is now gaining popularity among our statewide clients. The Pennsylvania Department of Education, for instance, requested we add the WMCT tool to PA TRAC in hopes that more students would create – and benefit from – user accounts. PA TRAC is Pennsylvania’s statewide transfer and articulation center, which provides the comprehensive tools and resources students need as they consider college transfer.
