Interstate Passport Briefing

Interstate Passport featured in Change Magazine

The authors cite research on the need for a more efficient transfer mechanism that truly addresses the needs and experiences of transfer students, and offer the Passport as a very workable solution.

The value of Interstate Passport will continue to grow as more institutions join the Network.
