Interstate Passport: Streamlining Transfer for Increased Student Success


Hosted by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU), this webinar introduced participants to Interstate Passport®, a growing national program that facilitates block transfer of completed lower-division general education attainment based on student learning outcomes rather than on specific courses and credits. The webinar featured administrators from NWCCU accredited institutions from Alaska, Idaho, and Utah who provided their perspective on the benefits of joining and implementing Interstate Passport on their campuses.

Students who transfer with a Passport to another member institution are recognized as having completed all lower-division general education requirements prior to transfer, regardless of course titles and number of credits.
