CAS can assist schools and educational organizations in creating and maintaining meaningful relationships, or in revising existing relationships, between colleges, universities and other schools in the United States and in other countries.
1. We assist with "transfer credits" between schools.
1) Course syllabi revision/creation:
CAS works with schools to create (or revise existing) course syllabi which conform to U.S. educational standards, so as to enhance transferability of such courses to American colleges and universities. We have created a set of American General Education (GE) course syllabi which have been pre-approved by a number of colleges and universities in the U.S. – such courses may be applied in whole or in part to the existing curriculum of schools in host countries.
1-1 Revision: we can review existing syllabi and, in consultation with you, will recommend revisions that will bring syllabi into compliance with U.S. standards, to enhance their transferability to schools with which we have articulation or transfer-of-credit agreements, or to other schools abroad on request.
1-2 Creation: we can provide courses and syllabi and text titles which have been pre-approved for undergraduate transfer credit by various American colleges and universities with whom we have affiliations. We can also create new courses and, where appropriate, petition to have such courses approved for transfer by affiliated colleges and universities, or by other schools abroad.
a) GE transfer courses: Most pre-approved degree-relevant courses are designed to satisfy the General Education (GE) requirements of American university undergraduate programs.
b) Other transfer courses: Other pre-approved degree-relevant courses will be applied as major or elective requirements in the U.S. system, or will be considered “block transfer” courses by schools in countries operating on the U.K higher education system.
2) Negotiation of transfer conditions and terms:
We will negotiate conditions and terms or transfer between a host school and a school in the United States or in other countries. Colleges and universities abroad vary on their English proficiency requirement – some accept TOEFL Institutional Testing Program (ITP) scores; others will accept other proofs of proficiency. Schools vary in terms of conditional or full admission, on the number of non-credit English as a Second Language (ESL) courses they require to demonstrate English proficiency (if any), and on the number and type of transfer credits they permit or require to meet degree requirements. We can help schools analyze and understand these requirements and can assist in reaching a written agreement outlining terms and conditions of admission and transfer.
2. We arrange "inbound or outbound" programs for schools
Many American schools now require their students to spend one semester abroad and are seeking sites to conduct such programs. We can assist both American schools and schools in host countries in developing such programs. We can send and support students, arrange exchange programs between schools, and/or create/revise programs so as to derive maximum benefit to client schools.
Because of our affiliations with numerous language schools, and articulation (credit transfer) agreements with various colleges and universities in the U.S. and other countries, we are able to design additional programs of almost any scope and range for client schools. We are able to assist schools with the transfer of credits to colleges and universities in the U.S., England, Canada, Japan and Australia. We can arrange language study programs in English, French, Spanish, Chinese, and Korean, of any duration, from one week to two years, through our affiliations abroad in countroes in which these languages are spoken.
We are currently seeking partners in Japan and elsewhere to develop programs for students from specific American universities that require a semester or year abroad for their undergraduate students.
Our innovative credit transfer programs differ based on the client school's intentions and desires. Such programs range from comprehensive “two plus two” or “one plus one” programs to assistance with arranging the maximum allowable transfer credit for existing courses within the curriculum of a school, college or university in Japan, Korea, India, Canada, Myanmar and other countries.
