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.
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.
