Mission and Guiding Principles
To deepen the culture of developing academic transfer pathways with two-year institutions that will lead to students’ success by:
- Ensuring a seamless transfer and increasing applicability of academic credit;
- Developing and publishing useful online resources for students, faculty, and staff including, articulation plans with two-year institutions as well as transfer guides for use by students, counselors, and advisors in transfer advising and decision making;
- Soliciting partnerships and articulation opportunities that will expand educational and career opportunities; and
- Creating an effective process for developing and implementing academic transfer pathways.
Articulation is a process and relationship involving the vertical, lateral, and reverse movement of students through a formal education system. The agreement is based upon guidelines, policies, and accreditation principles. The agreements are intended to expand and create access for students.
The UTEP intends to enter into agreements that will:
- encourage students to complete an associate’s and baccalaureate degree;
- increase access to and attainment of students’ educational/career goals;
- ensure alignment of course offerings between UTEP and the partner institution;
- maximize educational opportunities and services to enhance career opportunities for students;
- provide effective and cooperative linkages to strengthen partnerships initiatives that benefit students; and
- be mutually beneficial to all parties.
