III. Board of Regents Policy
A. The university, as a comprehensive state-wide system, offers instruction in a wide variety of programs throughout the state. As a unified system of postsecondary education, it is important that the maximum degree of coordination and cooperation exists among campus instructional units in order to ensure the efficient utilization of available resources. This coordination and cooperation can offer wide opportunities to residents of Hawai‘i by permitting them to start their education at one campus and, through productive study in a planned program, succeed in achieving their educational objective by graduating from another campus.
B. It is the policy of the board that those students who can benefit from transfer and who desire to meet their educational goals by transfer are assisted through appropriate counseling and advising, and efficient student and course transfer procedures. The transfer experience should be made as simple and predictive as possible. Unreasonable institutional barriers to transfer should be eliminated.
C. All university and campus policies and practices affecting student and course transfer shall be periodically reviewed to ensure that they are:
1. Founded on sound academic principles; and
2. Designed and implemented in a manner which facilitates the smooth flow of students towards successful completion of their postsecondary educational goals.
D. Reports on the status of student and credit transfer within the University of Hawai‘i will be provided upon request by the board.
IV. Delegation of Authority
There is no policy specific delegation of authority.
