Strategic Alignment: Hawai‘i Graduation Initiative

ITS Strategy:
(A) Support Student Success

Description & Benefits:
The implementation of the WICHE Interstate Passport supports the national program facilitating block transfer of all lower-division general education attainment based on student learning outcomes, rather than on specific courses and credits. 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 credits.

ITS has responsibility of the technical aspects of this project.

IRAO has responsibility for tracking student success upon completion of the WICHE Passport.
