Streamlined Seamless Nationwide General Education Transfer
A Revolution in College Transfer
Interstate Passport® is the only nationwide network of regionally accredited, nonprofit, public and private two- and four-year institutions dedicated to the block transfer of lower-division general education attainment based on multi-state faculty-developed learning outcomes and proficiency criteria instead of on specific courses and credits. Students of member institutions experience a seamless, efficient and economical transfer process. To join the Interstate Passport Network, an institution or system should declare its intent to become a Passport-granting institution and define and submit a Passport Block.
Three Steps to Transfer Success
Interstate Passport addresses the frustrations many students experience when transferring between institutions by articulating to an agreed-upon set of general education learning outcomes that students must achieve. Member institutions map these outcomes to their lower-division courses and learning experiences.
Regionally accredited public and private not-for-profit institutions may apply to become members of the Interstate Passport Network. To be approved as a member, an institution’s faculty must agree that its learning outcomes are congruent with Interstate Passport’s learning outcomes and are acceptable as a basis of block transfer of lower-division general education.
We track Passport students’ academic performance to inform member institutions of the academic quality of transfer students’ general education preparation. As a result, member institutions can better serve a nationwide pool of well-prepared transfer students leading to increased rates of retention and completion.
Since 2016, our member institutions have awarded more than 25,500 Passports.
