§ 20-2006.1-C. Participation by State-related institutions
(a) Identification.--Each State-related institution shall identify 30 credit hours of course content from equivalent courses identified under this article that it will accept from a student accepted for transfer from an institution of higher education participating in this article. A State-related institution shall count a course in the same manner that it would count the same or equivalent course if taken by a student at the State-related institution. A State-related institution that previously identified 30 credit hours shall be deemed to have satisfied the provisions of this subsection.
(b) Posting.--Each State-related institution shall make the information identified under subsection (a) available to the department for posting on the department's publicly accessible Internet website.
(c) Construction.--Nothing in this section shall be construed to do any of the following:
(1) Require a State-related institution to apply a course to graduation or degree requirements if that course or its equivalent course would not be applied to graduation or degree requirements if taken at the State-related institution.
(2) Infringe on a State-related institution's sole authority to accept a student for transfer, to determine acceptance into a major, to determine the campus assignment of the student or to determine how many and which credit hours shall apply for the transfer student toward the completion of a degree. The manner in which accepted courses apply toward completion of a degree and whether they are counted for general education, major or free elective credit shall be subject to the requirements established by the accepting State-related institution for each individual major or program of study.
(3) Prohibit a State-related institution's ability to enter into discussions with the department to increase the number of credits under subsection (a).
