AB928 Associate Degree for Transfer Intersegmental Implementation Committee, 2023 Final Report and Recommendations

In 2021, California passed The Student Transfer Reform Act (AB 928) with the aim of increasing transfer rates among California community college students by creating an intersegmental committee to reflect, set goals, and establish directions for streamlining transfer programs across all the state’s postsecondary segments. The law called for the committee to be comprised of leaders from across California’s higher education public and independent institutions — including students, faculty, and administrators — as well as postsecondary advocates and appointed experts. The committee was charged with “identifying annual goals for increasing transfer rates in California and closing racial equity gaps in transfer outcomes to be adopted by the state,” as well as providing recommendations on unit thresholds for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) degree pathways and a plan to engage transfer-ready students who did not enroll in a 4-year postsecondary institution. The committee’s final report and recommendations were submitted to the Governor on December 20, 2023.
